"I feel good. I liked this tonight - simple and can't articulate it but I feel very happy. I usually can't sing but I could tonight. It was very comfortable to just tune in to something and express it, or let it be expressed."

Strong like a mountain
Many parts like a stream
Flowing like a breeze
Grounded like the earth
Yielding like tall grass in the wind.
