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.

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..."

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.

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???)

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.
