Weekly Photo Challenge: Local

This week, the challenge is to show us where your heart is. "Local" to me is not so much a place as the people you know and experiences you have while being there. Here is a garden dedicated to my son's former third grade teacher, Mr. Winford. He died unexpectedly and it was so very … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Local

Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O

For this week's challenge, share a photo that features H2O; the element of water. I love the early morning fog. I think it was more foggy on this morning than what you see here, but I hope you get the idea.   For more entries of water, please click visit the Weekly Photo Challenge site.

The majority of the world is good – I’ve written those words on past posts here because I believe it. Even when the news constantly reminds us about all the evil, I continue to believe the majority of the world is good.

Humanity is a term that refers to all of us. All … not all with a but or except … simply all. Regardless of skin color, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, location or any other qualifier or disqualifier, humanity includes the characteristics human beings have in common.

Acceptance
The greatest gift that you can give to others is the gift of unconditional love and acceptance. (Brian Tracy, author)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth

This week's photo challenge is Earth. Share your vision of our magnificent Earth through your lens. Since the Earth is 75% water, I choose a photo of our beautiful Pacific ocean. It amazes me that only 5% of this vast liquid space has been explored. It makes me wonder what's out there for us to discover. In … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth
