Love it!Love this way of thinking – so radical, so what Creation wants for us all! Wish I had read this poem when I was 25 instead of 55! I would have had 10 books published by now! So, I guess I’ll just go and publish my first now and then my 10th in 5 years! Now that’s crazy! Thanks Lululemon! Thanks, Ciona!

Ciona — you ROCK! Love it!!!

Are these posters to be purchased. I would love one and several more to give my friends. I can feel a poem in that poster somewhere. Well done Ms. Rouse, I am moved. This speaks of life and moving forward instead of sitting still. I can go on and on or I would love to hear you go on and on. Blessings! This was awesome!

Can we get this on a tshirt, pleeeeaaassssseee!!!! This is awesome. It is such a clear message of the wonder of moving forward and living life to its fullest while doing so. We can suppot lulu lemon with this shirt as well. Think about it. I am sending this to University of South Carolina because I know that the students will love this. My daughter would love wearing and walking this statement. I just love it!

Ciona. You tender, warm spirit of passion and peace. You are a light that shines brighter than the moon. You touch me with just a thought of your joyous voice. I’m so proud to be a part of your life.

Within there is a core existing that longs to see you in the fulfillment of your dreams and goals. The viewing of your actualization is an ultimate goal important to my core.
