Today's Friday Photo comes from a garden in Chanhassen, MN. It's the perfect quote to follow Monday's blog about the stories we tell. Take some time this weekend to explore what ingredients you have put in your favorite dish (aka you!). Is it time to liven up that recipe?

Today's Friday Photo comes from the Golden Gate Bridge in California. Watching this wall of fog come in under the bridge was a site to behold. Within a few fascinating minutes Alcatraz and the city had disappeared. And the fog didn't care about my viewpoint (pun intend, or the lack of it!) We worry so much about what others think about us.

Today's Friday Photo comes from Indianapolis, Indiana. From your perspective I bet you see a flower. But what about the bird? Can you see it? Check out last Monday's blog, and the one coming next week. Dyer is so right - and remember that what you focus on expands.
