Michael Jackson - Gone Too Soon.mp3


We may run, walk, stumble, drive, or fly,

but let us never lose sight of the reason

for the journey, or miss a chance to see a

rainbow on the way

~ Gloria Gaither

Happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply,

to enjoy simply, to think freely, to risk life,

to be needed.

~ Storm Jameson

I always felt that the great high privilege,

relief, and comfort of friendship was that one

had to explain nothing.

~ Katherine Mansfield

The phrase 'a picture is worth a thousand words' was coined by American newspaper editor Arthur Brisbane in 1911. It’s a simple notion that applies to many aspects of our lives, but especially to historical photography. Sometimes, one simple picture can tell you more about history than any story you might read or any document you might analyze.
Photographs all tell stories about the historical things, figures or events that they represent. Once taken simply to document their present, they now help us witness the past. Many photographs only become iconic shots years later, once we understand their importance and historical context. From historical landmarks and famous people to the basic daily routines of the past, these pictures portray the past in a way that we can empathize with and understand more intimately.

Perhaps the wars, poverty, fights for freedom and little miracles

of the past have lessons for us that we can use today?

Everyone goes through life experiencing enough mistakes
and resulting damage that, by the time they
are old enough, they have regrets.

Don't be one of those!

Don't regret not being grateful sooner.
Learn to say thanks and learn to mean it.
So many parts of your life will improve if you do.

Don't regret not spending enough time with loved ones.

We are all on this earth for a limited amount of time,

don’t take that for granted. 

Please join me tomorrow ...

Have a great day and take care ...

And now till another time, be safe in

all you do. Be aware of everything and

everyone around you at all times. A

very good habit .... take care!
