(The poem begins).............................

=================================

in the eyes of a child...
the world is a place full of morning magic...
and evening wonder...

It is a place full of vibrant colors...
and pulsating sounds...
...and all the hues of the rainbow...

It is a place for wide-eyed dreams
and long-cherished memories ...

In a child's eyes, life is absolutely fantabulistic ..
and yes, expialidocious, too!
And the future is forever.
In a child's eyes,
there is no death...
no war....
no taxes....
no crime........
no jobs........
no responsibilities.......
no tests, no quizzes.......
no broken bones.......
no long-lasting pain........
Just a few nosebleeds,....
a few scratches here and there,....
a headache now and then, ....
shoes that are too tight, ....
and clothes that do not fit.......
OH, TO BE A CHILD AGAIN!....
To witness firsthand the sheer joy of discovery....
... the excitement of learning .......
the pleasures of sights and sounds .......
of touch and smell ......
of taste and sensation .......
of feelings and friends.....
From a child's point of view,....
the world is indeed a charming place.......
full of warmth and loveliness... ....
and peopled by uncles and aunts.......
grandmothers and grandfathers.......
mommies and daddies... ....
brothers and sisters.......
and neighbors and friends. ....
In a child's eyes... ....
there is no looking back ... ....
only looking forward .......
into the future... ....
that awaits us all......
Did your dreams come true yet?....
Or are you still waiting? ....
Listen: today is the first day of the rest of your life ... ....
REMEMBER THIS: It is never too late to begin again ....
For in a child's eyes ....
it is really never too late ....
to begin again.....
Find the child within yourself who is willing to begin again ... ....
to rise up from your current worries and woes... ....
Stronger and freer than ever before. ....
In a child's eyes, it is never too late to begin again.......
For in a child's eyes, it really is never too late to begin again........

YOU CAN TOO!

    "こどものような心で見てごらん

    今からでもちっとも遅くない"

    --- ともだちの輪で世界を駆け巡るEメール・ポエム --

    こどものような心で世界を見てごらん

    一日のはじまりに心躍らせ

    一日の終わりには素敵な夢に包まれる

    そんな興奮にたくさん出会える

    色にワクワク、音にドキドキできる

    虹を見つけて色を探すときのような ときめき に出会える

    未来は際限なく過去も輝いている

    こどものような心で世界を見ると

    人生は魔法のようにエキサイティングで

    呪文をとなえれば願いもかなう

    みる夢は果てしない

    こどもには…

    死は存在しない

    戦争もない

    税金もない

    犯罪もない

    仕事もない

    責任もない

    試験もない

    テストもない

    痛みへの恐怖心もない

    長く続く苦痛など存在しない

    ただちょっと鼻血がでたり

    ころんで擦りむいたり

    ときどき風邪をひいたり

    靴がきゅうくつだったり

    洋服が大きすぎたり小さすぎて快適じゃないこともあるけどね

    もう一度こどもに戻れたら何と素晴らしいことだろう

    新しいことを発見したときの素直な驚き

    はじめて知ったときの興奮

    見たり聞いたりして味わう喜び

    触ったり 臭いをかいだり

    味わったり 感じたり 色々考えたりすることの楽しさ

    友だちがいることの幸せ

    こどもの視線で世界を見ると

    この世は何と素敵なところなのだろう

    あったかくて ここちよい

    大切な人がいてくれる

    おじさん、おばさん、おじいちゃん、おばあちゃん、おかあさん、おとうさん

    にいさん、ねえさん、おとうと、いもうと

    おとなりさん、ともだち

    こどもの心は

    後ろを振り向くことがない

    いつでも前を向いて歩いている

    未来へと

    貴方の夢はもうかないましたか

    それとも、まだですか

    ちょっと考えてみて

    今日は 貴方の残りの人生の第一日目

    そして忘れないで

    今から始めても遅すぎないということを

    こどもの頃の心を取り戻せば

    今から何だって始められる

    貴方自身の中の「こどもの心」を見つけてみて

    チャレンジしたいと望んでいる心を

    今かかえている悩みや悲しみから立ち直るためにも

    もっと強くなるためにも

    自由になるためにも

    こどものような心で見てごらん

    今からでも ちっとも遅くない

    貴方だって必ずできる

    始めてごらん

    Dear Sir,

    I am terribly sorry to report that I could not drum up the same level of
    excitement for your project that I had, among the other acquisitions editors
    and sales reps. The prevailing thought was that, while it is an interesting
    and "cute" (not my word) book project, it would have a difficult time
    finding a spot in bookstores and selling through in the market. As you know,
    it is an unusual presentation, to say the least. But it's also very
    original, truly inspiring, and genuine. It's just unfortunate that that kind
    of thought -- how booksellers will look at a project -- very often colors
    our opinions these days as publishers.

    Good luck in placing this book with the right publisher who can see it's
    potential.

    Signed,
    Editor

    Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

    Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

    Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

    The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

    We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.

    Online Stock trading, in the New York Stock Exchange, and Toronto Stock Exchange, or any other stock market requires many hours of stock research. Always consult a stock broker for stock prices of penny stocks, and always seek proper free stock advice, as well as read a stock chart. This is not encouragement to buy stock, but merely a possible hot stock pick.

    Well, then, there lived Monsieur Poopoo ever since he came from dear,delightful Paris, as he was wont to call the city of hisnativity--there he took in the pennies for his kickshaws--there helaid aside five thousand dollars against a rainy day--there he was ashappy as a lark--and there, in porno animationen all human probability, he would havebeen to this very day, a respected and substantial citizen, had hebeen willing to let well alone.Well, Smiley kep' the beast in a little lattice box, and he used tofetch him downtown sometimes and lay for a bet tier sex bilder mit frauen.He didn't realize how dangerous it was until he hadgot so far into it that he couldn't back out; and he didn't tell her,because he'd left her here, you asslicker see, and under the circumstances----Left her here! cried my wife.They shall not find lions,they shall gratis gay pics gallerie find man himself, and the record of all his life and of hisstruggle with reality.

    It would certainly be a simple and convenient solution of the riddle ifthe work of analysis made it at all possible for us to trace themeaningless and intricate dreams of adults back to the infantile arsch sucht schwanz type,to the realization of some intensely experienced desire of the day.Now there can't be no apartment-house on two sides kontaktanzeigen nylon ofthe same street, kin they?What street was it? I inquired, wearily.The dream never utters the alternative either-or, sexdk but accepts bothas having equal rights in the same connection.In the bitter and seeminglyirreconcilable controversy as to whether the psychic life sleeps atnight or reife frauen in dessous can make the same use of all its capabilities as during theday, we have been able to agree with both sides, though not fully witheither.

    Are you hurt? he http://startso11.info/Biblioteka+w+Gda%C5%84sku.html repeated, anxiously, though she looked anything but a hurt woman.. Unless, he said, with an attempted return to his former easy gallantry, which, however, http://startso11.info/reformer.html the recollection of her eyes made difficult, it is a question of--er--the affections? Which? said his fair client, softly.. The water http://rebestal.info/rumien+pospolity.html rapidly rose toward the top of its sides.. Instinctively I put them on, and looked at http://startso11.info/teksty.org.html my grandfather.. the numerous examples). http://startso11.info/darmowa.bramka.plusgsm.html. And yet, on the further side of those broad ridges and rises were scores of villages--a little world of country life, lying unseen http://startso11.info/dps+olkusz.html under our eyes.. I made the grand star-entree with Polly and the pretty Walton girls, who were staying with http://startso11.info/www%2Fgmail.com.html us.. Even speeches which are found in the dream content are not new compositions; they prove to be pieced together out of speeches which have been made or heard or read; the words are faithfully copied, but the occasion of their http://startso11.info/orn+for+free.html utterance is quite overlooked, and their meaning is most violently changed.. I do not need to make up http://startso11.info/P%C5%81OWDIW.html my mind.. Here, having placed a http://startso11.info/Skun.html candle upon a reading stand at the bed head, and having made an attempt to peruse some pages of the Omnipresence of the Deity , I unfortunately fell asleep in less than twenty seconds, leaving the light burning as it was.. I do not know how long I looked, but I had, apparently, no power, as http://startso11.info/maredi.html I had no will, to remove the spectacles.. All that we have termed the dream-work seems so remote from the psychic http://startso11.info/szpitale+w+poznaniu+grunwaldzka+50.html processes recognized by us as correct, that the severest judgments of the authors as to the low psychic activity of dreaming seem to us well founded.. This case of insufficiency results from the union of the two factors from the history of our evolution; one of which belongs solely to the psychic apparatus and http://startso11.info/www.sp14zabrze.debacom.pl%2F.html has exerted a determining influence on the relation of the two systems, while the other operates fluctuatingly and introduces motive forces of organic origin into the psychic life.. Violent and http://startso11.info/medion+md+80857.html unmanageable Punsters, who interrupt others when engaged in conversation, with Puns or attempts at the same, shall be deprived of their Joseph Millers , and, if necessary, placed in solitary confinement.. Rows of high box bushes lined http://startso11.info/www.poczta.pl.html the fence and walks.. Buller that Podington still continued http://wowyesaf.info/rudymentalne.html to be his own driver.. As long as he moved http://wowyesaf.info/s%C5%82ownik+polsko+angielski+on-line.html at all, he was satisfied.. As a matter of fact, the elder would have been a confirmed drunkard twenty years http://startso11.info/nieruchomo%3Fci+Bielsko.html before had his wife been less strong-minded.. If it should seem surprising that so high-bred a visitor should be sojourning in http://startso11.info/Dobraczy%C5%84ski.html the wild woods, it must be remembered that more than one celebrated Englishman and not a few distinguished Americans have farmer brothers in the western country, no whit less rustic in their exterior and manner of life than the plainest of their neighbors.. Reflecting upon this dream does not make it a bit clearer http://startso11.info/borek+wroc%C5%82aw.html to my mind...
