here and beyond

Have you been watching the new series called "Planet Earth" (click here) on the Discovery Channel?

It is some of the most awesome photography and storytelling I've seen.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I'm a little less judgemental and a little more compassionate these days

for some really good points made in the Double Winner (Al-Anon) meeting last night

for the people who show up consistently in my environment

that we are finally getting some much needed rain here in the Housotn area -- we are drastically behind the normal average rainfall

for the incredible photographs taken by the improved Hubble telescope

Our strength is often composed of the weakness that we're damned if we are going to show.

The Hubble Telescope images are amazing arent they???!!!

I haven't seen the series, no cable, but I have heard from many sources that it's awesome.

I love gratitude!

The Hubble really puts us in perspective doesn't it? Those photographs made me feel closer to God. jeNN

I'm glad they are getting some rain in Housotn, maybe they will get some in Houston as well?

Great quote. Enjoy your day!

I'm glad that you have rain. We need some here. I'm glad that you have compassion. The world needs more of that.

Very very good series. The British version with David Attenborough narrating is better than Sigourney Weaver. Much better. Surreal photography.
