a charm on my favorite necklace

“each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again. and what do we teach our children? we teach them that two and two make four, and that paris is the capital of france. when will we also teach them what they are? we should say to each of them: do you know what you are? you are a marvel. you are unique. in all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. you may become a shakespeare, a michelangelo, a beethoven. you have the capacity for anything. yes, you are a marvel. and when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? you must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.” ~pablo picasso

Hi! Just found you over on Bishop's Room. Love your site. Love this pic. And, I may have to borrow this quote from you and link back to your site tomorrow. I am writing about my gram and this totally described how she made me feel. Love Picasso.

So, we are opposites... I am a freelance writer aspiring to be a graphic artist! What kind of writing do you like to do? Graphic design?

Glad I dropped by your site. Hope you have a great day.
