Maya Angelou is right!  That's a spectacular scene, Paul.  I could sit in that spot for awhile, and be really content.

Maya Angelou has some great thoughts put in quotes.  This particular one, I feel, at times is challenging.  Sort of easy to say to ourselves or others:  change the attitude.  Many times, it takes raising oneself to a higher vibration energy -- taking a 'higher road of thought, of action.  And if we do, we can experience a deeper self, spirit -- and experience positive change.
