Is Kindness Strength?

“If you ever think soft isn’t strong, look at what water did to the Grand Canyon.” – A.R. Knight

Never mistake your kindness for weakness.

What Endures?

In fiction and in real life, settings can take on a life of their own. They almost become characters. For many, the burning of Notre Dame feels like a loss.

Though I walked through the cathedral years ago and felt sadness watching the flames engulf history today, what I was reminded of most strongly was the power of nature…of how in the blink of an eye, feats of architecture and human achievement can be erased.

That reminded me once again that the most enduring legacy we leave behind is not found in things–but rather resides in the minds and hearts of those we love.

Why are Dragonflies Interesting?

• Nearly all of the dragonfly’s head is eye, so they have incredible vision that encompasses almost every angle except right behind them.

• Dragonflies are expert fliers. They can fly straight up and down, hover like a helicopter and even mate mid-air. If they can’t fly, they’ll starve because they only eat prey they catch while flying.

• Dragonflies catch their insect prey by grabbing it with their feet. They’re so efficient in their hunting that, in one Harvard University study, the dragonflies caught 90 to 95 percent of the prey released into their enclosure.
