Degree of Forward

Good morning and welcome.

Karina and her Art Teacher

"All real education
is the architecture of the soul."
William Bennett

"A teacher takes a hand,
opens a mind
and touches a heart."

"A teacher affects eternity,
he can never tell where his influence stops."

 "Expect while reaching for the stars,
people to whirl by with their dark clouds
and storm upon you."
Anthony Liccione


Sometimes, it feels good to just sing it out!

"Nourish the mind like you would your body.
The mind cannot survive on junk food."
Jim Rohn

"As long as I dream, that is enough for me
 to keep moving forward."
Kcat Yarza

Love all critters.

Downtown Minneapolis

I bet you all know of places 
where abandoned architecture waits to be seen again, 
with new eyes.

Just because we stumbled upon some hurdles,
big or small
it doesn't mean that time will stop
and wait for us, it won't.
We have to keep moving forward no matter what."
Kcat Yarza

I always love seeing fresh young minds/faces
all ready to conquer the world!

Just for fun-

from the funny side of life-

Johnson and Hanks for 2020!
Yep, I believe I'm in, how about you?

Reach for the stars,
no matter how far away
 you believe them to be.
Anything is possible.
Dream it.
Do it.
Conquer it all!

Thanks for stopping by 
and take good care of you!

What a very happy Sunday post Karen, although I'm reading it here in Perth on Monday :) Karina is adorable! Thanks for reminding me to keep my eyes peeled for old and abandoned buildings that deserve a last photographic opportunity :) Happy new week to yourself et famille.
