Only those who truly love and who are truly strong can sustain their lives as a dream. You dwell
in your own enchantment. Life throws stones at you, but your love and your dream
change those stones into the flowers of discovery. Even if you lose,
or are defeated by things, your triumph will always be exemplary.
And if no one knows it, then there are places that do. People like you enrich the
dreams of the worlds, and it is dreams that create history. People like you are unknowing
transformers of things, protected by your own fairy-tale, by love.

Some grew flowers. Some grew words. Six of one. Very inspiring words and snap. Very. From one flower. THGg
