Favorite Quote:
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world; there is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We were all meant to shine as children do. We were all born to make manifest the glory of God that's within us - it's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
-Nelson Mandela

A wave just about to curl.
A lone purple violet almost concealed in a field of wheat.
A full harvest moon aloft in an indigo sky.
A child playing in a sandbox.
A redwood towering at the top of a mountain.
Dead grass turned green by spring rain.
A quake splitting the earth from its interior.
A volcano spewing lava from hell itself.
The God that created it all.
