I have a deep sense of gratitude for the relationships in my life and for people I've never met ( & often many who are not real) but have inspired me by their words and their actions. Know that I honor you in the way I live my life and the choices I make. Thank you. 

The truth-tellers, the pioneers, & those who unconditionally love:
