    Thank you for the reminder that trusting life which is so much bigger than I am is a better way to live than trying to impose my ideas on any situation. I planned to be a doctor, but a car hit me.  That accident led to another where I met Deaf people and fell in love with their beautiful visual culture and life, changing my entire life.  My daughter spent last year in France with our French "family" - a 5 generation friendship.  This close friendship of decades would never have happenend if Hitler hadn't taken over France.  The more I let go of my attachment to any outcome, the more I enjoy the gifts as Life and Love unfolds around me, in ways far beyond my imagination. I plan my most obvious next step right in front of me, but then practice being open to whatever happens.  Enjoy the unfolding.
