I believe we are here to help one another... to make the world a better place... to end the suffering of all beings... to give to others and to ourselves those things that bring joy, wisdom, laughter, truth, healing, comfort, and peace, whenever possible. Pleasurable feelings that arise when we give to others are natural. It makes us feel good when we can bring a smile to someone's face. It makes us feel good to help a person, animal, or insect who is in need. I know that not everyone feels the same way that I do about all living creatures. If I see any kind of creature—even a little beetle or other bug—in harm's way, I will do what I can to help. That's a form of giving, I believe. Anyway, I digress a bit. This is the season of giving (and I don't mean just material things), and even though perhaps the entire year should be the season of giving, this is the time when giving is on everyone's mind in this society.

With that in mind, I decided to create a phrase that looked somewhat like a festive ornament, hanging from above, as a united group of words and letters. It didn't come out exactly as I envisioned, but I'm pretty happy with it.

May you have the pleasure of giving this holiday season.
