rather than becoming new yourself.
Embrace transformation as an opportunity.

for the bright blue sky and the soft fog and the gentle rain,
for the tree veiled in the season's first frost,
for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."

Every compassionate act makes large the world.
