Carving Out A Life

Feeling the pressure of many responsibilities?

Cramming things is never optimal, and we know it

 

Our day starts and ends the same as everyone else’s.

We each get 24 hours.

No one gets more.

No one gets less.

How we spend them is up to one person.

Life is hard.

Get used it.

So Then He Says…

Show Us Your True Colors
Show Us Your True Colors

…Thank goodness it’s Monday! Do you need some inspiration while you think about the end of your tough year, as we most likely head into more of the same?

During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and achieve. But if it needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.  — Nelson Mandela (during his 1963 trial)

Does your vision for 2011 make you cry because it’s so powerful?

Living Legend?

Someday....
Someday....

Martin Scorsase was awarded the Cecile B. Demille award last night at the Golden Globes.

I love movies but am not a movie buff. So seeing all Martin Scorsase’s films, in a flash compilation,  was amazing. I had no idea he was such a genius.

Watching that short highlight clip of the movies he’s directed and produced, was like watching, well, a living legend.

But today is not about living legends, today is about a legendary man, who had a dream.

A man who is no longer with us.

A man so legendary, that his dream changed the world.

Our son doesn’t have school today.  School’s closed, due to a National Holiday. And it ain’t for Mr Scorsase.
