      Good luck, Connie!!

      Here is a poem by e e cummings that I thought you might like:

      may my heart always be open to little
      birds who are the secrets of living
      whatever they sing is better than to know
      and if men should not hear them men are old

      may my mind stroll about hungry
      and fearless and thirsty and supple
      and even if it's sunday may i be wrong
      for whenever men are right they are not young

      and may myself do nothing usefully
      and love yourself so more than truly
      there's never been quite such a fool who could fail
      pulling all the sky over him with one smile

        Light and Love,
