A Balinese Dancer, from my recent trip to Bali.

Albert Einstein

in the light

There are dark shadows on the earth, but its lights are stronger in the contrast.

Do not regret growing older.  It is a privilege denied to many.  

~Author Unknown


Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action.

I see a gem

 I look at my myself; and see a stone, I look at my friends and see gold, But I look at you, and see a gem.
