“The bridge will only take you halfway there,

to those mysterious lands you long to see.

Through gypsy camps and swirling Arab fair,

and moonlit woods where unicorns run free.

So come and walk awhile with me and share the twisting trails and wondrous worlds I’ve known.

But this bridge will only take you halfway there. The last few steps you have to take alone.”
Shel Silverstein


My thoughts, prayers, hugs and hope are with all those parents who lost a child in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday…and to all the families who lost loved ones in that school.

And for those of us who cannot stop thinking about this horrific tragedy…

Hug tight.

Hug often.

Just hug….
