Monday Morning Wake-Up Call

We ought to ask ourselves again and constantly: Why fill our lives with such effort and torment, when we know that we will be here only once and when we have such a brief and unrepeatable time in this indescribably beautiful world?

  6. This is timely, as I have just decided that I will allow myself a day off from working so hard in my garden. After all, tomorrow is another day, and do I really need to spend every day working so hard? As for the gorgeous photo, do you just happen to arrive at this place just as something beautiful happens or do you stand and wait for that spectacular moment? This photo is just wonderful.

  7. You know so many beautiful beaches and bodies of water in your territory! No matter how many lifetimes we will live on this planet, we get the most out of any life by learning to appreciate and be fully present. Thank you David for inspiring us to do that!
