    Sometimes we catch sight of them, at the periphery of vision, watching how we are doing. I like to think our earlier selves would wish us well. ;-) M

  3. I like to envision all my past selves snuggled down inside my heart playing cards, reading books, resting, running amok ...whatever it is that they need to do in there to be at peace. Then I thank them for getting me here.
