Has it ever struck you how so much of life involves searching for something? It could be searching for yourself, a mate, a job, a career, a new hobby, doctor, grocery store, or even a new way of living. What each of these areas have in common is they involve a search to be undertaken in order to be found. We each have been given one life to live, and it is in the searching, in all its various forms, that we find this life and what it means for us. This life I am talking about can be likened to a gem, a very exquisite and precious stone. This gem is meant for the seeker to discover at various points throughout his or her lifetime. Finding these gemstones is not a one-time occurrence; rather, it´s a deep-sea exploration that takes an entire lifetime to unearth and cultivate. Sometimes this life is found in the small things that are right in front of us, and other times it takes an excavator to bring them to the surface, as you´ve got to really mine for them. After all, these gems aren´t precious stones for no reason at all. However they come about, this life and these life moments are universal in nature, yet they are unique and personal for each one of us. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Harriet Seed.

In my deepest moments of reflection, I have prayed to be sent back to that pivotal moment in time where history can be changed. Everything would be as it was, except of course I would retain the knowledge that I now possess. Cheating fate, the powers that be and the very hands of time itself, I would fly back to 1987. I would inhabit the body of the young naive kid I once was and try to contain my excitement as the view came into focus....I sat at the table, somewhat shaken by my travel through space and time and blinked as the lights of the nightclub filled my eyes. I could hear the soft, romantic music and was vaguely aware of the couples out on the dance floor. Then my heart skipped as I finally saw clearly the woman who sat across from me. *It was Ann.* I was stunned by her appearance, so much more beautiful than the faded and worn pictures in my mind. 1.
