      You are now in the hands of Creation. Life energy is never lost. It is in the trees, the wind, the new flowers of Spring, the new dawn of a day and in the night sky! Your energy will never be lost. It will continue to shine and replenish the Earth. You are never lost old friend!

      Love always, Lesha
