A Free Spirit by lifepause

A Free Spirit

'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free
'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

'Tis a gift to be simple, 'tis a gift to be fair,
'Tis a gift to wake and breathe the morning air.
And each day we walk on the path that we choose,
'Tis a gift we pray we never shall lose.

Such a beautiful image, Jae! Great companion to song lyrics. A rose by any other name :)

@kevin365 Thanks Kev! It is a image that lets me remember the great bday celebration I experienced and also to know the beauty that lies still in the midst of an area and a time that was experiencing such unrest.
