No Title......

At the center of the universe is a
loving heart that continues to beat
and that wants the best for every person.

Anything we can do to help foster
the intellect and spirit and emotional growth
of our fellow human beings, that is our job.

Those of us who have this particular vision
must continue against all odds.

Life is for service.

Fred Rogers

I do not make New Year's Resolutions, but if I did, this would be mine.

Yes, I also keep my new year's resolution for my own because when I write them I believe it won't be happen :)
The picture is very dramatic to me.
Take care Ellen.

Wow!! That is amazing. I love seeing your photos of the natural world that surrounds you. The story of the crane was very touching. Sometimes I feel that way...totally blown out of my comfort zone and wondering how I could possibly be so far off course. But then I suppose we all do, don't we, and luckily for me...I have survived.

Hi Ellen!
That would be a very good resolution for all of us.
We need more people like Mr. Rogers.

We are the loving heart at the centre of the universe. What a lovely intention to take with us into the new year.

Thanks for leaving such a lovely comment on my blog. Best wishes for the New Year.

I agree Ellen, what a wonderful sentiment! Sometimes it's hard in a world and society that tells us to look out for ourselves. But it seems I'm finding more and more people who believe in living a life of service. It gives me hope.
