Good morning :)

Obsessed with taking pictures, the beauty of this snow storm, 
and my phone that allows me to participate in these obsessions ;)

The sunset turned the snow to gold, the sunrise to white gold.

I have a pretty back yard :)

Snow Day Recap :)

Quotes of the day... 2/5/16

“If all the world hated you and believed you wicked, 
while your own conscience approved of you 
and absolved you from guilt, 
you would not be without friends.”

“Calvin : There's no problem so awful, 
that you can't add some guilt 
to it and make it even worse.”
     ~ Bill Watterson

“He showed the words “chocolate cake” 
to a group of Americans 
and recorded their word associations. 
“Guilt” was the top response.

Quotes of the day... 2/4/16

“Genius is not a possession of the limited few, 
but exists in some degree in everyone. 
Where there is natural growth, 
a full and free play of faculties, 
genius will manifest itself.”
     ~ Robert Henri 

The beauty we create is, after all, only a trace – 
like a footprint which shows that one has 
walked bravely and in great happiness.

Quotes of the day... 2/1/16

All of us are confronted with hardships, 
tough choices and periods of change 
throughout our lives. 
What matters most, though, 
is not learning to avoid these things 
but learning to roll with them. 
     ~ Thuannguyen

When we learn to see difficult circumstances 
as times of opportunity and growth, 
we are able to live fuller, happier, 
more creative lives. 
     ~ Thuannguyen

The highest levels of performance 
come to people who are centered, 
intuitive, creative and reflective,
people who know how to 
see a problem as an opportunity. 
     ~ Deepak Chopra
