​We are all wading through this pond called life

The waters may be perilous at times

Turbulent and untamed

Step by step

its waters envelope us

Only with courage and fortitude

Can we reach its blessed shores

I have always believed that each one of us has a reason, a purpose and our journey here on this beautiful planet is to achieve our purpose and fulfil our dreams.

For me, our genius lies in our capacity to imagine always greater than we are. To reach for the unreachable and never allow the letters "im" to precede the wonderful word possible.

We are all miracles.
