Surrounded by the winds and the rain,

a time for repose and contemplation.

Charisma was originally a religious term,
meaning "of the spirit" or "inspired."

It's about a sparkle in people that money can't buy.

Quite the contrary, it's when we truly become bright.
We're letting our own light shine.
- Marianne Williamson

Hearts full of truth,
Six parts gin to one part vermouth.
- Tom Lehrer - song: Bright College Days,
album: An Evening Wasted With Tom Lehrer
