What a gorgeous shot. Interesting quote too. I recently read the best part of most of the things we are looking forward to is the anticipation. Makes sense really.

I totally agree with that thought, Paul... I'm always much more focused on the today than worrying about long term goals. There's no guarantee for the long term.

Happy Saturday, Paul- Love that photo and the quote is so true. I've known some people so focused on their goal they forget to enjoy all of the steps in between.
