Chapter 1 – If we meet again we shall listen to our hearts & never let go.
Photographs by me.
Joy & sorrow are inseparable. Together they come & when one sits alone with you at your board remember that the other is asleep upon your bed. No matter how hard life gets don’t loose faith in your self & others. Everyone has a story to tell. Close your eyes & listen.

Thinking about few simple things everyone can do to make the world a better place. If we all did just one thing every day, we could begin to make a positive difference worldwide. Find something you’re good at & use it to help someone else. Tell someone you love them! If you see a piece of trash on the ground, pick it up. Boost the morale of someone close to you by telling them what you love about them. Wave to your neighbors. Dance with someone. Be there for someone. Listen to their troubles. Care about people. Grow some of your own vegetables. Love your self! On a hot day, buy someone something cold to drink– on a cold day, get them something warm! Connect like minds, recommend people to friends who might appreciate their services. Put a spotlight on someone else’s talent. Drive less & try to limit your water usage. Be generous by simply stop & listen for the answer when you ask a friend how they’re doing. Be kind & enjoy the simple things in life, always. Plant flowers. Look into other peoples eyes more often. Words are sometimes overrated, so enjoy the silence even with others. Listen to your heart & never stop dreaming, please! I wish you all a beautiful new year. It’s never to late to be what you might have been.
I would like to share this poem with you. Read & breathe!
“Let there be spaces in your togetherness. And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love. Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone.Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.And stand together, yet not too near together. For the pillars of the temple stand apart. And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.”
(this poem was written by Kahlil Gibran)
