A cool friend showed up at the bar last night and we greeted each other like we always do -- "Greetings, Highlander." We talked, connected as human beings and listened to good music, as is our custom, and it was great. Again I was reminded that it's the depth and authenticity of relating to other people on a similar wavelength that is the great treasure of my life. The gold in my heart is spun into being from the magic fortress of allies around me. Before he left he said, "I feel re-energized." The feeling was mutual. For my fellow Highlanders and VS Protagonists, here's a gift from that space...
Joy in looking and comprehending is nature's most beautiful gift.
~ Albert Einstein
The greatest gift is a portion of thyself.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.
