Today is the 4th of July. I wonder how many of us in the United States will stop for a few minutes today and think about what this means; what it means for this country, for other countries in the world, for your community and for your family and for you? I am sure that each of us will have a different perspective depending on our own personal life experiences. But I do think it is important to think about this. Will you discuss this with your family, your children, and/or your friends?
The picture I am sharing with you today is one that I took on a visit to Maine. I was out wandering along the coast looking for what might capture my photographic eye. This is what caught my attention. I love the reflection of the dock in water , the calm ocean and the flag being caressed by morning breeze. So take some time today to reflect on what this day means and think about this picture as you do so.
