ONE LIFE - ONE CHANCE

When engulfed by despair, it is good to create space, to be alone, to become lost in the vast blue of the sky, to allow the breeze to embrace you, to hear bird song, to press your face against the grass, to lie on the ground from which we came and to which we shall return, to trail your hand in running water, to touch eternity in the depth of a child's eyes, to caress your face with flower blossom and dance in the fragrance of roses, to be held in the bosom of creation, to be fed again with the milk of life's air and breathe deeply, to be born anew, fresh, bloody and eager, ready to meet the opportunities that each day brings. One life, just one chance.....
