Great. There's more:
A renewed awe for
the beauty of life, a
for everything from
a sunrise to a soft
pillow, the sudden and
that someone you've
known for some time
is stunningly beautiful -
physically and as a
person, and that
everyone and everything
is beautiful...in their/its own
way, less concern with
the outcome of events
and more joy in the
journey - the process,
the displacement of
the god of what-will-
with quiet self assurance
and comfort in being...
All this childlike joy,
with the mature appreciation
of a a calm and confident adult.
