What this world needs is more PEACE! Early in the morning, after a rain, when a lot of mankind is still asleep – I find peace in my yard, with my camera – soaking up nature’s quiet beauty. I love spider webs covered in rain drops. Intricate webs created by spiders that many people fear and detest. Yet, if you venture out on an early, wet morning – these webs come alive with a look of gleaming pearls.

My brother was a person who was either on top of the world or down in a deep pit of despair. He is gone now, but not forgotten. I loved him very much and I miss him. Yet, I often told him when he tried to drag me down to an unhappy place – “Stay in that hole of misery you have created, but don’t expect me to join you.”
Our esteemed past president Ronald Reagan said – “Peace is not the absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means.”
My husband is constantly watching the news – which is something I try not to do. So, I venture out into God’s beautiful world and soak up nature’s quiet peace. Try sitting silently in your garden and let peace enfold you in its arms. Ah – sheer bliss.
“Peace is its own reward.” Mahatma Gandhi
