Happy 4th of July Weekend


To me, this is idyllic ~ 2 inviting Adirondack chairs facing the sea.  Imagine us together today.  Sipping iced tea (or something stronger perhaps?), embraced by the sunlight, enveloped in the peaceful moment, silence and conversation flowing without awkwardness, the sea air filling our lungs with its sweetness.

Ahhh…pure bliss!  May your entire weekend be as such.

Shine On!

Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness



“The essence of America — that which really unites us — is not ethnicity, or nationality or religion — it is an idea — and what an idea it is:  That you can come from humble circumstances and do great things.” ~ Condoleezza Rice

I think that our own global essence is that each one of us, in our own way, does great things.  Since I’ve been blogging, I’ve connected with so many amazing people world-wide.  Each in their own way continues to extend their greatness across the globe.  Simply by connecting with friendship, we grow joy in the our own lives and in the lives of others while continuing to expand understanding, peace and love internationally throughout our planet.

It’s not just America, but world-wide…

YOU make a difference…
