SO...that's the official. Here's the personal:
I love to write...and entertain...
I love the sun...even the rain.
I love waterfalls...the tropics and Italy...
Great food, great friends, intelligence, no enemies.
I love eyes, and all that they say...
Soul and beauty...night and day.
I love people, and learning from the choices they make...
The good, the bad, the true and the fake.
I love trust, and those who can too...
Despite the hardships we all go through.
I love peace...although without war,
How would we understand what balance is for?
I love happiness...and the pursuit of giving joy...
Even to those who sometimes destroy.
I love laughter...how it can touch...
How it breaks down barriers and unifies us.
I love sound, and its awesome being...
Life in vibration...all the ways it is freeing.
I love my parents for loving each other...
Teaching the world...allowing me to discover.
I love my God for HE IS LOVE...
Elevating my spirit to soar above.
