These are some of my thoughts so far. Consider this a work in progress.
I believe in the interconnected web of being. The web that connects me with every living thing on the planet. I try to do what is the best for this web. I try also, to do right by the earth, the air, the sky and the water that sustains our lives.
I believe in family however YOU define and live it for yourself. I have family I can reach out and physically touch, some I touch through telephone and internet. There is my family of origin and longtime close friends who often feel and act like family. And there are the ancestors.
