Dale,

Sounds like a very wise saying - hadn't heard that one before. Thanks for sharing that with us.

Much love,
Larry

dale, this statement requires risk - and faith -

i have those - but i do not know what it means.

what is within us? - but what my mind goes to immediately - i am

afraid to tell. and maybe this is it.
