Twinkle twinkle little bat

Twinkle, twinkle little bat
How I wonder what you're at!
Up above the world you fly,
Like a tea-tray in the sky.

Our bodies

Our bodies communicate to us clearly and specifically,
if we are willing to listen.

There is but one temple in the universe,
and that is the body of man.
