Gary: Sitting on a bench on the hilltop at our gated retirement community in Cave Junction, Oregon. Max, our fox-terrier mix is on his leash beside me. It's dusk and the temp is cooling down. I have lots of stuff that has been weighing heavily on my mind. I breathe in some of the energy from the pine-covered mountains that surround us. To my left, the moon is low, full, and glowing with golden light. I say the Hawaiian prayer, Ho'oponopono: I love you; thank you; I am sorry; please forgive me. And I lay my troubles down like a "bridge over troubled water!"
