Few persons have courage enough
to appear as good as they really are.

Do your work with mastery.
Like the moon,
come out from behind the clouds.

I am enjoying my vacation through the wilds of Wyoming, and in between hours of hiking and driving and just staring out the window, I spent time this week pouring over the hundreds of quote submissions from the past month….talk about SHINING! It was such a treat to look through them and see a bounty of potential pebbles and boulders; many of you took the time to share passages from your favorite writers and singers, and a few of you even penned your own words. I believe that our humble little newsletter splash will SHINE even brighter in 2007.
I hope YOU can do something really brave and extraordinary this week: SHINE! At work, at school, at home, with friends…wherever you are just be your fantastic, magnificent, shiny self!
Oh, and If you liked last week’s photos….I added a few more vacation pictures as a reply to last week’s posting in our community forum. (If you cannot SEE the photos after you click on the link, it is because so many people are viewing the page at that moment. You can either click on the photo’s file names and download them OR just hit the refresh button on your browser a few times and they should pop up eventually.)
