    That small-faced girl lost on the beach was me. I remembered writing the paragraph when I was eleven. I was looking out my bedroom window in the early morning. The sun filled a deep blue sky, unusual for Washington State, yet I was filled with sadness, and tears welled up in my eyes. I felt so alone, as if I didn't belong in this world. I wanted someone to help me through my despair. ____________________________________________________ By Arcana-siddhi Devi Dasi "If death led to a better life,...

    Like a baby learning to walk by repeatedly falling, though relentless to keep trying; undaunted by failure, determined to succeed, knowing we will stand, we must humbly, yet confidently approach Krishna. _______________________________________ Not completely sure what it is that brings the urge to write and express–what? the intensity I feel in the heart of being so much more than I could possibly express–though I keep trying.
