In Remembrance, With Aloha













"Begin doing what you want to do now.
We are not living in eternity.
We have only this moment,
sparkling like a star in our hand
and melting like a snowflake...
"

Francis Bacon, Sr.

  1. Hi Natalie, yes, wasn't that lightening and thunder great? We didn't get a lot of it here in Long Beach, but I enjoyed what there was.

    I really like this poem you shared...."sparkling like a star in our hand and melting like a snowflake..."

  2. Thank you for your well wishes. Dealing with a sick baby for the first time is a learning experience. :-)

    The photos are beautiful. They make me feel tranquil.

  3. Love the quote. So true.
    (Does that mean I should forget about doing my tax and marking the year 10 essays and do something fun instead???)

  4. Great quote, I'm gonna write that one down.

    Best of all is I feel I have lived it and now I am a midwife, through grabbing that snowflake moment.

    ((((hugs))))
