I have been a lucky man.

To feel the intimacy of all my lovers,past and present is a marvelous thing
in life.

To feel the love of people whom we
love is a fire that feeds our life.

But to feel the affection,the love and the warmth that comes from those whom
we do not know,
from those unknown to us,
who are watching over our sleep and
over our dangers and our
that is something still
greater and more beautiful because it
widens out the boundaries of our being,
and unites us,and all living things.

I’m grateful for all the smiles,
The hugs,
The complements,
The encouragements,
That have come from total strangers in my life.
