Day 21 - A picture of something you wish you could forget

I find it hard to put a photo up for this. I don't want to ever forget anything....even the bad. I learn from all experiences and am a better person for all of the bad too. The good things are great because the bad happened.

Never forget......

Day 16 - A picture of someone who inspires you

One of my most favorite and treasured experiences of my life was sitting in audience the His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. An amazing man of faith and humanity - He truly believes in and sees the good in people and wants nothing but peace and happiness for all.

I was fortunate and sat at a peace conference in Denver, in audience of 11 Noble Peace Prize recipients, including the Dalai Lama and Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu. The words they spoke were real and true and seem so simple - just be kind.

The Dalai Lama and Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu are old friends now and actually were silly on stage, sitting side by side and talking and giggling while others spoke at the podium - like naughty school children.

Day 15 - A picture of something you want to do before you die

Before I die, I will bring in the new year in Sydney, Australia. Whether I watch the clock strike midnight on the steps of the Opera House or on a boat on the harbour, I will be there and see a new year in.

Day 12 - A picture of something you love

I love so many things! Its hard to choose one, but when I saw this picture today, I knew I loved it so thought I would share. This a Pina Colada drink, served to me at Corona Beach on the island of Cozumel. Freddy, the server, would bring it to me with the hibiscus, as he said it was special. Freddy is no longer just a server there, he is our friend. I was invited to his house for dinner and he showed me his home and introduced me to his family.

Cozumel I love.....I would go there today if I could. It is safe, friendly and laid kind of place. I stay at a quiet bed and breakfast, right in town and away from the tourist area. I would go alone - I feel so safe. Ching!

Day 09 - A picture of the person who has gotten you through the most

I think I have gotten me through most things, with the help of others...but I am a strong person because of it.

Day 08 - A picture of your most treasured item

I don't really have a concrete item that I treasure above all others, but I treasure my eyesight....I am an observer and treasure memories that are initially captured with my eye. I do love memories from other senses, but I can readily go back with visuals and share with other people what I have seen. Ching!

Day 07 - A picture that makes you laugh

I had never seen a real pumpkin patch, so on a road trip through Idaho/Oregon, when we turned down a small side road and I looked out my window and saw this one, I didn't even think and yelled (quite loud) "A PUMPKIN PATCH!!! and scared Jason. We ended up pulling over and there was a maze and several large patches.  Can you see me in the picture? lol

Day 06 - A picture of a person you'd love to trade places with for a day

Now, don't laugh.....its true....I just want to know what it would feel like to switch with:

Day 05 - A picture of your favorite memory

I am very lucky in that I have many, many memories - hard to pick a favorite. However, one that I will never ever forget, having waited and wanted it for so long, was the first sunset in Santorini. Along the sea wall, rushing up to get a spot and then IT happened. Sun slowly setting and painting a sunset canvas that I had been waiting to see. I cried.....

Day 2 - A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest

Not a flattering picture at all, but we sure giggle when we see it. Melinda and I have been friends since college, 1990. We always seem to laugh until we cry when we see each other and talk almost every day, driving to work in the morning. She is my rock and I adore her.
