choose to take "pay it forward" farther - much farther.

Have the courage to trust that
the beautiful butterflies of your life
will return - or not - as life intends.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

onto the movie screen of their future.

However carefully we plan our future,

While it is important to our happiness
that we have an intent for our lives,
it is equally crucial to accept in advance

and that is good.
