Our lives are a series 
of highs and lows. Like streams 
tumbling down mountainsides
or waves crashing onto shores
Cleansing waters and renewal.

Each waterfall and wave brings 
possibilities and gifts.
The gift of noticing, listening
and of becoming present.
Being open to whatever
comes next. No matter
the ups and downs of everyday

Knowing it will pass
Reach out gladly and 
take hold of everything
life has to offer.

~ Val Boyko
