“I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
I picked a beautiful rose for you, Aunt Ying…
and I took a stroll down memory lane;
Memories of you have walked
beside me for four years,
and they constantly fill
my heart with gladness;
I’m forever thankful
for this priceless treasure.
Today, in your honor
I celebrate life,
and think of you with
love, gratitude and fondness.

Think of what you can do with that there is”

“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.”

“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”

Go on. Get drunk.”
