"Hold on to what is good,
even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe,
even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do,
even if it is a long way from here.
Hold onto life even if it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you."
Karen Ivey, Crystal Healing and Readings. Pastel paintings of Native Americans.
