wow. 'Be the change you want to see in the world', Ghandi said. Howard Thurman took that seriously, didn' t he? Didn't know him at all, thanks for the intro :-)
Love the painting and the song. But the quote? Outstanding.

Thanks for all your comments.

As we age, we tend to forget the child within us. Seems this stops us from doing what needs to be done, and money of course. Somehow, the money comes and what is enough anyway?
