Thank you Lorraine. As I head out to Indonesia this very early morning of my 66th birthday, I am ever reminded that if we perceive the world through scarcity, we will work hard to be right about that POV. If I choose to embrace what I’m offered as a gift, then the soft, warm breath of a horse on my palm, the light, sweet touch of a stray dog’s tongue is a lovely as a lover’s. I just need to be paying attention.
