Good morning Paul. Ralph Waldo Emerson was quite the thinker and author. He is a great source for thoughts to ponder as Michael Jacobs suggests with many things. Enjoy your day.

Hello Paul - the passage of time can often speak and it may reveal volumes to some while it remains silent for others.

Truer words were never spoken.  It is amazing how we can look back at days we thought were one thing, when they were actually quite another!
