Open the Gate Wider – A New Year of Dreams, Forgiveness, and Impossibly Good Writing
I wish to bring in the new year with the hope and inspiration provided by poet, Maya Angelou.
In her tribute here to Nelson Mandela, we move beyond the political to the heart of humanity in order to embrace a world in which the seemingly impossible becomes possible.
Whatever your giants are this year, may you move forward through them, beyond them, to find what lies on the other side.
May we have wide hearts and wide eyes so “we will not withhold forgiveness even from those who do not ask.”
With this video, we are reminded of the power of words and the power of a life lived in dedication to others.
Wishing you a Happy and hope-filled New Year. May you find words and actions that inspire.
