WI: EARTH


Meanwhile, a little closer to home...

This is Mars and Orion over Monument Valley, recorded just last week. To the left are the two buttes called the "mittens." Just to the right of them, are the three stars of Orion's belt, and his sword. Betelgeuse is the red star near the center, and finally, find the bright star Rigel above the third butte, called Merrick.

I heard a Swedish proverb: Fear less, hope more; sit less, walk more; talk less, say more; eat less, chew more; whine less, breathe more; hate less, love more; and all good things are yours.

If I had one thought to give my children-- a legacy, of sorts-- it would be this, and it should be graven with an iron pen on rock forever: make every day count. Just that. Make every day count. The race is not always to the swift.

May all good things be yours!
