     Undoubtedly receiving that unexpected gift from an unknown other was one of those special experiences that was  unforgettable and life-changing.  It was a symbolic experience.  My understanding of an experience that widens out the boundaries of our being is just that -- it stretches our boundaries such that we see self and others and all that is differently.  It broadens and deepens us as persons.  I discovered the unity of all living things by way of respected others who were beyond me in their awareness and made comments like "look across the room and see yourself."  Their awareness widened my boundaries which resulted in my awareness, vision, and life changing.  Such awareness sheds light on my living (poetry) and makes my living lighter, which gifts I treasure.
