When I meet a soft spoken, inquisitive, and considerate person, a bell rings in my head. I feel the presence of wisdom. As compassion between us flows we both realize the infinitely small roles we are playing on the glorious landscape. Our importance is not diminished by knowing this, but our regard for all inhabitants; plants, animals, and inanimate things, is ever present. This leaves us speechless and hopefully content to wend our way in peace.
