May You Be Changed

A swoop of gray, a thread of black, and another swoop of gold are a close-up of feathers on a penguin's shoulder.

May you leave this time together changed.
May the promises you have made to yourself about who you want to be
feel closer to the reality of who you are right now.
May you share that feeling of transformation wherever you go.
May it spread into every word, deed, thought, and interaction
Until we are all changed, transformed and transforming together,
becoming our better selves.
