I am so blessed to be in a world of light and sound and life. The past six days were a pilgrimage to simple and basic existence to reflect and ponder the journey we are on. After daily reflection and conversations with the god of our natural universe and the goddess of humanity, I return with hope and a renewed inner strength for doing good in the world. I also return with the renewed drive to make each day and each moment an opportunity to not only make this world a better place, but to become more of a person. Peace to all.
