Day 111112

Today is the real day of unity. Today is the day we see that every day is a day of one-ness, not only the special one.

Hanna sits next to me as I am writing. What a gift she is, what a blessing. I have already covered this but it strikes me how I have called her in to my life to bless it.

I remember in my youth, more and more reflecting on who I was, I became frustrated by being so "right" all the time. I was young, I was Caucasian, I was western, male, protestant, middle-class and I saw myself as fairly healthy, wealthy and skilled...

I'm the dream come true, I am you! I'm the dream come true, I am you!
