Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.

Lean On Me

Lean on me 
when you're not strong 
And I'll be your friend, 
I'll help you carry on 
For it won't be long 
Til I'm gonna need somebody to lean on
- Bill Withers

When I saw these flowers "leaning" on each other - that verse was the first thing that popped into my mind.

With beauty before me I walk 
With beauty behind me I walk 
With beauty above me and about me,  I walk, 
It is finished in beauty 
It is finished in beauty.
