Forging Forth with Friends

Be a lamp, a lifeboat, a ladder.
Help someone's soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd.
Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī, Persian poet and Sufi mystic (1207-1273)

Good friends came to visit and since they had never seen Niagara Falls, I pretty much insisted that we make it a priority on their final day. As we gazed down, miniature (in the face of the Falls) boats regularly challenged the cascading torrent and treacherous currents. I got to thinking about facing challenges and having friends who shine a smiling light into the mists so that you know that you are not alone. Sincere thanks to each and every one of you out there!
