A voice just trembles through the air,

A Note from the Universe
It’s time we had that little talk.
You know, about life, how it started, and where it might go…
First, there were a few thoughts.
Then, there were a few things.

Until there were new thoughts.

If we really want to grow, we’ve got to learn, and that means that we might have to start doing things differently to make space for that in our lives. No risk, no reward.
