Life is so generous a giver
27 MONTHS AGO
'Life is so generous a giver, but we, judging its gift by their covering, cast them away as ugly or heavy or hard. Remove the covering and your will find beneath it a living splendour, woven by love, by wisdom, with power. Welcome it, grasp it, and you touch the Angel's hand who brings it to you. Everything we call a trial, a sorrow, or a duty, believe me, that angel's hand is there; the gift is there, and the wonder of an overshadowing Presence. Our joys too, be not content ...with them as joys, they too conceal diviner gifts...'
Excerpt from a letter by Fra Giovanni to the Contessina Allagia dela Aldobrandeschi, written in 1513. The letter was found at 38 Via Martelli, Firenze, Florence, Italy.
Thank you to everyone who has donated to this Boosted campaign so far. I am moved to tears and touched deeply to experience and receive your support. You are so special to me; I am taking you with me as I travel to the other side of the world to dance, teach, perform and share my work with the world and I do not feel alone any longer because of your presence and support.
The campaign has reached the magical 10% and has another 15 days to go. There is strength in numbers and every dollar counts. There is great love, wisdom and power in the world and you are that. Thank you, Juliet
