    Dear Carl,
    For me, this quote ooozes an extraordinarily ordinary invitation….a nectar infused wift of what life after the spiritual ego holds for us!
    ….and to think that our spiritual ego won’t be engaged to lap it up!!!!!
    O the mysteries of the utterly ordinary!!!!!
    A companion on the journey,
