One of my dearest friends from across the pond sent me this poem. We always like to give each other anecdotes, inspirations, and support over cyberspace. Though not always as good as the real thing it's a testament to how important it is to continue to stay connected. I feel so much love and appreciation to those who have continued to encourage me even through all my faults, foibles, and periods of withdrawal. Yes, we are one. I love this.

"Called beyond the confines of this 
Chrysalis by a force I cannot see 
or name, I am compelled by pain 
And something bigger than myself
To leave the protection of all that I
have known. There is struggle, doubt, 
an awkward setting forth. Finally I 
Break free of the cocoon and find 
myself surrounded by air and light. 

I dare to act, still not knowing what
I am; instinct, or maybe faith bids me 
move forward, make the leap, explore
this mystery of change and fight. 

I find myself with wings that dwarf
my former world. Unfurled, they dry 
quickly in the sun. I who expected 
to spend my days crawling, now
teach myself to soar. Such a rush 
of wind and freedom - that first 
flight teaches me more than I had
learned a lifetime of crawling."
