Thomas and I have been married for 20 years in October…and we have shared many things together. We dreamed about having lots of trees, shrubs and flowers in our yard in the City.

A dream you dream together is reality-John Lennon

You were born with goodness and trust.

You have wings.

Learn to use them, and fly. -Rumi
