the beautiful butterflies of your life
will return - or not - as life intends.

Release each fear - your fears about your health,
your family, your job, and every other fear.

Pretend you are an alien from a distant galaxy -
that should be good for a laugh.
Troubles only appear troubling to those close to them.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.
