“We were made to enjoy music, to enjoy beautiful sunsets,
to enjoy looking at the billows of the sea
and to be thrilled with a rose that is bedecked with dew . . .
Human beings are actually created for the transcendent,
for the sublime, for the beautiful, for the truthful . . .
and all of us are given the task of trying to make this world
a little more hospitable to these beautiful things.”
Desmond Tutu, b. 1931
South African Activist
Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town
* The day after Christmas, while talking to Mom on the phone, I stepped out on the deck and took this picture of our backyard, though I must admit that multi - tasking -- camera & phone simultaneously! -- is not usually my strong suit! Then, for the above result, I started experimenting with "Fun Features" on Kodak EasyShare. Fun! Easy!
