I spent five days in Florida last week ... I have a sister Rosene who has cerebral palsy and is in a wheelchair. My parents spent about two months at their house in Florida each winter. Rosene enjoys going down with them and spending a week or two there, but she doesn't like to stay the whole time. My friend, Mary and I flew down to fly home with her.
I had a cold while I was there, but we had great weather ... in the 70's and sunny.

This are some of my favorite photos I took while there ...

Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure
nor this thing nor that
but simply growth.
We are happy when we are growing.
-William Butler Yeats

So many people walk around with a meaningless life.
They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important.
This is because they're chasing the wrong things.

The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others,
devote yourself to your community around you,
and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.
- Morrie Schwartz
