Each friend represents a world in us, a world not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.

    Anais always prompts so much of my pondering, too.

      Her quotes are remarkable — must be born out of the intriguing life she lived.

      I appreciate this one too – “And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

      Have a great day blooming friend 🙂

    I like your thoughts. We are unique individuals, each of us forever changed by our encounters. We mark our footprints wherever we go and leave lasting fingerprints by all that we meet.
    I’m glad I found your site. You encourage me daily.

      Same here — it’s a mutual feeling! I love how God brought us all up together. Our thoughts may not always harmonize but our hearts do. When each of us try to respect and understand each other it’s a beautiful world! I thank God for you; for bringing you to my world!

  6. That is a great thing to think about. You keep coming up with such great analogies!

    Every spirit we meet on our cosmic journey a sprinkling of their spirit is caught up within us and becomes part of who we are. Every grain of cosmic dust will help you help others as well as forge a destiny that will help all people see the light that is good about people. Love it!!!! Take care Alan.

    I like it 🙂

    The meeting of worlds opens many doors to wondrous possibilities. I like to think I’m better off for meeting the wonderful persons I’ve been blessed to have in my life.

    A friend gave me a note many moons ago … your quote reminds me of it.

    “Some people come into our lives and quickly go
    Others stay for a while and leave footprints in our hearts and we are never the same.”

    Thank you for sharing 🙂
