Regardless of the means
with which you came into this world,
union of loving bodies entwined
or tragic circumstances unfurled.
Regardless of the childhood
you reflect upon today,
full of laughter, love, security
or fear, rage, and dismay.
Regardless of the path
that brought you to this place,
you are indeed a blessing
to this precious human race.
Regardless of why
you may feel set apart,
breathe life in deeply
with a grateful heart.

Could you just turn this wine into water and then walk across it, because rather than wait to see what other exceptional talents you pull out of your bag of tricks, thought it would just be easier to find out what you DON’T do. Well done Lu. Say hi to Terry for me.
