Today's Friday Photo comes from Aberdare National Park in Kenya. Like these magnificent lions, I wanted to take a nap the other day but my mother's voice rang in my ears "Don't be lazy." It's easy to be judgmental of others but we are the harshest of critics of ourselves. Judgment doesn't mean not questioning motives or preferences or weighing options - why I want to do this or that, for example.

Today's Friday Photo comes from El Capitan in Yosemite Valley, California. Just as two people didn't want me to miss the majesty of this incredibly large mountain of granite, I don't want you to miss this post. In the midst of seemingly insurmountable challenges and chaos, it's natural to think that one person can't do much to effect change.

Today's Friday Photo comes from Philly, Pennsylvania. Standing next to the Liberty bell looking out at Independence Hall, the place where the declaration of independence and the constitution were debated and signed, caused me to reflect on many things. I wonder what the founding fathers would think of our country as it is today?
