NPR has a program called "This I Believe" where folks submit essays on what they believe. If I wrote an essay for the program, the verse quoted above would be at the heart of it.
Today's photograph is from the festival I went to over the weekend and had the opportunity to paint with a group of plein air painters. I painted but have to admit I enjoyed people watching as much as I did painting. Many of the people who came to the festival came dressed like folks did in the 1800's. A photographer had a booth behind the place I had chosen to paint and I turned and caught his photograph with my digital camera while he was busy working. I'm telling ya, I'm extremely glad I don't have to wear the clothes they ladies did in the 1800's.
