Eyes ten degrees above the horizon.

Bless this moment. Bless its ending and its opening into the mysterious next.  Bless the circle of people who offer us their example by living with courage and imagination. Bless the risk takers. The activists, the freedom fighters, the artists, the innovators. Bless the ones who lead with their hearts and with an unshakable faith in human goodness. Bless the teachers, the caretakers, the gardeners. Bless the earth shakers and the makers of marvels.

May they continue to invite us into their ranks. May we find ourselves brave enough to accept their invitation.
