    So beautiful. Imagine if everyone felt this way and put into life rather than just grabbing what we want from it.

    What great quotes and the selection of pictures reminds me of what is so often overlooked by eyes glued to the ugliness of the world. Thanks.

  13. Very moving. Sadly, I’m reminded of two local fire fighters in their thirties who recently died in while fighting horrific fires.

    Exactly! Words are cheap (and I say that as a writer). Sometimes, we need to actually “do” and lead by our example.
