The freshness of new snow still gives me the same feeling as it did when I was a kid. Making new footprints on unmarked territory. My thick soles crunching down on the snow making it's way through the softness until it lands on the hard cement.
Trees holding the white weightless substance that can shut down a city to complete stillness. It falls quietly, small flurries-all different- landing gracfully, soundless and weightless. One by one until it's a huge blanket covering everything it touches.

Enjoy this day. Learn to love the little things in life. It's your right, my right-our right

Happy Birthday- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

This is truly a great day!

However you're spending this day be sure to acknowledge Dr. King and his Dream

A change has come as we welcome our President elect Barack Obama into his new position.
There was something Mr. Obama said today that continues to play in my head "if everyone did their jobs to the best of their ability America would be alright". It doesn't matter what job you have - just do it good! Today Mr. Obama was painting the walls in a teen homeless shelter in D.C. -He also would like us Americans to volunteer more- to help those who need a helping hand.
This year I will put forth more effort into volunteering and helping others and in turn it will help me more.
Here is a list to help us help America

50 Books This Year

This is not much of goal but more of a must-

There are some books that I believe every human should read at least once in their life.  I will read 50 books this year, that's about a book a week average.  I've completed two books so far
Kite Runner and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, both books were very different, lovely language and great storytelling.  I'm happy to have read these touching pieces of work. 

I'm reading Obama From Promise to Power written by David Mendell.
