In the midst of the chaos
When the wind is howling I hear
the ancient song
Of the ones who went before

And I will thread a thread through my poems that time and events are compact, And that all the things of the universe are perfect miracles, each as profound as any. –Walt Whitman
(contains 7 rough cut diamonds in the vessel)
I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream. –Vincent Van Gogh
When the act of reflection takes place in the mind, when we look at ourselves in the light of thought, we discover that our life is embosomed in beauty. –Ralph Waldo Emerson

Freely we serve,
Because we freely love, as in our will
To love or not; in this we stand or fall.
