Thought for the Day

Beauty waits in ambush for us. If we are sensitive,
we will feel it in the poetry of all languages.
~ From "Poetry" in Seven Nights by Jorge Luis Borges

You are such a treasure!

I started watching the video -- and now, I must come back to finish it. It's entrancing.

Thanks my friend -- what a gift.
