Life offers us brief glimpses into the compassionate nature of silent strangers…those who pick up lost mittens, shoes, teddy bears, etc. and place them on benches, fences, swing sets.  May you be touched with the blessings of gratitude.


I was sure I would never get lost

in the tangled roads of love,

Now I have been caught

in the karma of past lives.
