This word I like... We architect our life...
A song, a sigh... developing words that linger...
Through fields of green, through open eyes... It's for us to see.
Interanimate: To animate or inspire mutually

Don't wait so we can catch up

God's great gift to us is our ability to imitate, to emulate, and to mimic.

The three words all mean the same thing, each one is like the other.

We can learn how to live the best, most fulfilling, happiest life ... by learning from others who have already done so.

First we have to be able to recognize those teachers, those lives, in our lives.

Our parents are often our first, our best, and our only potential role models.

In emulating those on the path, we also gain access to the path and everyone we touch from there can see the path and how it is a good path, and they may choose to walk it themselves.

Our teachers may suddenly get too far ahead on the path where we cannot see them; and we may worry that they are gone and that the path now goes elsewhere.  But it is us who have temporarily had our view of them blocked by a sudden turn ahead.

We will miss you Mom and Dad; until we see you again...
