Grace is
the absence of fear,
and the presence of love.

Grace is
the music that whispers
through the ethers,
so I know that I know...
Grace is.

- T.A. Pugh
Editor's note:

This photograph was taken during the summer of 2001 at an actual dove release in the Vancouver area.  This photo is not retouched.  These are real birds flying high in the sky. 

The poem was written during the spiritual festival of Wesak, made popular by Dr. Joshua Stone, and held in the Mt. Shasta area in 1998.
