Fear less, hope more;
Eat less, chew more;
Whine less, breathe more;
Talk less, say more;
Hate less, love more,
and all good things will be yours.

Outrage Grows in India Over Gang-Rape on Bus - Yahoo

This news is sickening and infuriating...Any time I head/read about a similar case, it's always the same reaction.  We have got to help change the world...if not for ourselves, for others--especially when children are involved.  God help us.

Just don't give up trying to do what you really want to do. 
Where there is love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong.

Amen...this makes me feel better for all the times I'm smiling like a fool by myself.
 
When I saw this art piece, it spoke to me instantly.  With my pain issues, I have become more aware of my muscles and nerves than I ever have before, more than the average person, I believe.  When I look in the mirror, I don't just see my external, but I think of my neck and shoulder pain or how it is healing--this painting depicts my self-consciousness so perfectly. When we look at a person, what we see on the outside is just the surface--think of all the layers beneath the surface.  There is so much more than the eye can see.
