Sometimes there was beauty in unexpected places.
Or in a familiar town where loved ones live and spring comes early.
Or traveling through Georgia on the way to see mom.
In a park where I learned that walking for fitness can be fun.
And standing in the rain in Times Square.
The whisper of the river. Always beautiful.
A summer so hot that these guys got water every morning and rewarded me with their beauty.
The fruits of a master gardener's garden.
And watching the Braves play on a blue sky day.
Shimmering beauty in the fall.
And at the site of a famous battlefield, now peaceful and quiet.
This barrel outside a recovery shelter for men reminded me of an important lesson I often forget for myself: "Live your Life" - enjoy it, be happy and love whatever it is you choose to do.
I wish just that for everyone.
Happy New Year, my friends.
