Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS - in times of comfort, I like to turn to Ralph Waldo Emerson for motivation. Yours is a new quote for me and I like it! The photograph is so beautiful. I love the silhouettes in the forest on the edge of the lake (or is that the ocean) with the sun shining through the clouds. 

Thanks for my morning inspiration!
