A PARTY OF ONE

"I am no longer waiting for the world to be at peace;
I unclench my grasp and breathe peace in and out.
I am no longer waiting to do something great;
being awake to carry my grain of sand is enough.
I am no longer waiting to be recognized;
I know that I dance in a holy circle."

Mary Anne Perrone

Smile to Your Belly Fat
