A perfect quote for our online community. We feel our online friends holding our hands even though they might live hundreds of miles away and we've never met them.

Lovely photograph Sharon - thank you!

I love the quote too.

The tulips, Nap, are in plantings all along the streets beside the sidewalks in Paducah. Patches of bright red, so pretty!

Our tulips are not yet budding. Just leaves so far. But I was at the Falls yesterday (Niagara), only a half hour or so drive to the north of me, and it looks like the tulips there will be blooming any day. Makes me happy to see tulips. I wish they could bloom all summer.

Even the humble dandelion is cherished here as a spring wild flower! I found it hard to come to terms with that for a good few years, then I opened my eyes and saw the beauty and tenacity of this tough plant. I remembered as a child I had no prejudice, I enjoyed picking them and blowing their seed heads. Gardening came along and they became a pest plant (weed) unwanted! Perhaps I have returned to my childhood? No I simply have begun to re-evaluate everything including my faith. Raised as a Christian I now realize Christianity misses some fundamental issues, It seems to allow prejudice against other faiths, as many other faiths preach against Christianity, who is right and who's wrong? Our home, our planet is what we should worship and protect, It's our mother and our home, the sun sustains us with it's light and warmth and the moon holds us stable. Quite regardless of who or what created it all, it falls upon us to maintain it all until we find the answers.

It is upon us to maintain Nature, to do our best for it, to protect and not destroy. As far as faiths and areas of belief , being judgmental is what we and they are most guilty of. It leads to death and destruction. I think Jon is saying that to put our focus on this beautiful gift of Nature that we have all been given and realize it sustains us even to the air we breathe, we would be doing more good than those who fight and destroy others over a belief system. Most wars are started over religion, sad but true.

So . . we begin with friendships in our own little corner and hope those friendships grow and scatter just as do the seeds of the lowly dandelion.

Am I reading you right ,Jon? Smiling

I seem to have offended Vicki and Nancy, for that I am profoundly sorry.

I have lived in a foreign land and seen a different perspective of life and faith, trust me when I say I have come to understand humanity. As children we are taught in the way of our fathers, as adults we perhaps are confined to a particular way of life, until some of us find for whatever reason our fathers saw,may have been wrong. I believe it is right and proper to challenge that!

I challenge prejudice hatred and war and any divinity that allows those things to happen.
Love and peace.

Jon

You're too sensitive, Jon. I'm not offended by your beliefs. I simply meant that we each have the right to believe what we like, whether or not others agree with us.

Likewise, we should each have the right to express that belief, without our listeners feeling as though they are being preached too.

I'm as content and steadfast in my belief as you are in yours. No one will offend me for feeling differently. That's why I say, "To each his own..."
