Leo Buscaglia : The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have a potential to turn a life around. It's overwhelming to consider the continuous opportunities there are to make our love felt.
It's been over a month since I posted to the blog, and my last post was when I had the flu. Ominous... But really life was just really busy. I travelled to Washington D.C. the first 10 days of March. I'd never been and it was marvelous. I sat a Lincoln's feet.
And it was so cool - I've never heard so many languages spoken in one space. I sat there for a while and watched, looking down the Mall. Wow.
I walked among soldiers.
And visited the President at his home. I also took several lovely walks...
