#sol15 March 21 Hawking's Celebration

I stumbled on this wisdom, again,
Looking for a dry cleaner stub,
In another black hole, my purse.

The connection,
More than coincidence.
The wisdom,
More than chance.

If you are lost,
Look, seek, hope
In the heavens,

If you are alive
Work, give, share
Your Gifts, whatever they may be.
Make a difference,

If you find love,
Work, give, share
Hold on tight,
You are indeed have something to

Haha! I have to say, I love that you discovered these words of wisdom as you were searching for a dry cleaner stub. Something about that is so important!! I love the quote and your poem even more!! I found this quote today that I LOVE and I thought I'd share. It's by Sojourner Truth. "Those are the same stars, and that is the same moon, that look down upon your brothers and sisters, and which they see as they look up to them, though they are ever so far away from us, and each other." I found it on a Barnes & Noble bag. :)
