A SIGN TO MOVE FORWARD
PENNIES FROM HEAVEN POEM
THE PINK DRESS
THE STARFISH STORY

A well known author and poet was working and vacationing on the southern coast of Spain. One early morning, he was walking along the teach – the sun was rising, the rain had ended, the rainbows were magnificent, the sea was calm. While enjoying the beauty around him, he glanced down the beach and saw a lone figure dancing about. Fascinated by this person celebrating the new day, he moved closer. As he drew nearer, he realized that the person was not dancing, but in one graceful motion was picking up objects from the beach and tossing them into the sea. He approached the young man and saw the objects were starfish.

“Why in the world are you throwing starfish into the water?” He asked. “If the starfish stay on the beach, when the tide goes out and the sun rises higher, they will die,” replied the young man as he continued tossing them out to sea. “That’s ridiculous! There are thousand of miles of beach and millions of starfish. You can’t really believe that what you are doing can possibly make a difference!” The young man picked up another starfish and tossing it into the waves, said, “It makes a difference to this one.”
