One cat with his arm wrapped around me.

Two children upstairs and asleep; dreams winding their way out like shoots seeking the sun.

Three photographs taken while walking somewhere beautiful:

Four quotes from The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho:

"When you are loved, you can do anything in creation. When you are loved, there's no need at all to understand what's happening, because everything happens within you."

"I have inside me the winds, the deserts, the oceans, the stars, and everything created in the universe."

"I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you."

"All things are one."

One girl walking in afternoon rain.

One boy running.

One thought:

For this life I am grateful. For love I am grateful. For everything that connects me to the strange and quivering wonder of the Universe. I am grateful.

One song, which fills me—like so many things!—with Bliss.

"It is the simple things in life that are the most extraordinary."
The Alchemist

    "One wonderful Australian friend that I am glad to have found"
