This playful, zen image by Victoria Dym makes me smile, reminds me to slow down and have some fun! I am especially attracted to the droplets of water on the leaf:
You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.
In this season of mad consumerism and misguided rushing to prove or show love by spending money, let us stop… spend time together or in solitude instead…consider each moment…breathe…play!
