ONE afternoon in April 2004, while walking in the gardens around the Shrine of Bah'u'llh in ‘Akk, Israel, I stopped and took a hard look at an ancient tree standing in the middle of the gardens. As I examined its strong and massive trunk, I marveled at a splendid tapestry woven with traces of landscapes changing over a thousand years, and I realized how much more this tree would possibly weave. It made me reflect on the changing landscapes that I myself have seen, the faces and places that filled them . . . and the vast, thrilling possibilities that are ahead of me.

On these pages are profiles of some of those delightful people, fascinating places, and stirring events that I have known. Some of them are now in distant shores and memories. All of them are part of the tapestry of my life.
