A moving body whose motion was not retarded by any resisting force would continue to move to all eternity. Hermann von Helmholtz Sometimes everything gets really tiring - the daily grind, houses/apartments to maintain, and errands that need to be completed. A break is definitely needed....

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, The Day Is Don Photo from here How is it that Slim Aarons so perfectly captures the life I lead now with photos that are decades old? I guess this just means pool parties and chic gatherings are timeless! I had a truly fabulous time at my belated birthday...

I know I can start by being more directive about where my donations go and focus on education and children. The thing that did give me hope was the brightness and happiness of the kids themselves. One little girl was perfectly happy as long as we shared our potato chips with her (no English...

She has arguably gotten better with age and kept on giving herself new roles and challenges - why would age keep her from learning and growing? Yes and one can still make her first Vogue cover, even at the age of 62. I take her story to be a wonderful inspiration. I did have a great time in...

to my Amazon Kindle and am rediscovering my love for books (anything from "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" to the Millenium series). One of my favorite books is "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho.
