she read, she saw

This is my weekly Friday feature. I send my daughter, who is living in Seattle while she is in school, a photograph I've taken and she sends me back a quote she feels goes with it.  Hopefully, both pieces will be a bit more inspiring as a result.  So the image is something I saw that touched me and the words are something she read that touched her...


"Transport of mail, transport of the human voice, transport of flickering pictures—in this century, as in others, our highest accomplishments still have the single aim of bringing men together." –Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Since I try to keep my weekends blog free, I'll see ya'll on Monday and wish you a very Happy Weekend!
