I don't think we ever stop dreaming and hoping and wishing for peace and happiness to all, I know at 50 I haven't.

Whether that will happen, I don't believe in but I don't ever stop wishing for it to happen. Know what I mean? And I do think that we WISH it could be, despite knowing it probably won't ever be, is important. It means we still strive for it, in large and small ways, dictating our actions to bend toward kindness.

I definitely believe in free play for kids, and adults. Free the imagination to wonder and create and learn in ways school, team sports or anything else can do.

In reading all your posts, it finally occured to me that you sound very much like I did after my husband died: lost while shedding something old, becoming something new but you don't know what and you're not done yet.
