i want to grow gracefully old. and be the healthiest me that i can be. i aspire to feel content, satisfied. i wish to create beauty to combat all of the ugliness. i want to love the world for all that it is, and forgive it for what it isn't. i hope to be surrounded by a family, a family that depends on me as much as i depend on them. i want that family to consist of mammal, man, woman, child, bird, fish, reptile, plant and insect. may we coexist harmoniously. there is room for us all.
this is all i ask. these are my goals. this is what i live for.
