I want the worlds inhabitants to line up at my feet and one by one I will give them each a hug and I will be so completely in the hug, a deep unhurried kind of hug, I will be so thoroughly inside of that hug that no one would ever question or doubt again whether they were loved. :
And then there could be peace.
