she read, she saw...

This is my weekly Friday feature. I send my daughter, who is finishing up her third year of law school up in Seattle, WA, a photograph I took and she picks a quote to go with it.  So the image is something I photographed that touched me and the words are something she read that touched her. Hopefully, both pieces will be a bit more inspiring as a result...




"Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us dragons can be beaten." -G.K. Chesterton 


Photo: I took this photo in the south of England - the ruins of Berry Pomeroy castle.


Have a super weekend everybody!

If only there was time to tell about the adventure of finding the Berry Pomeroy Castle... :-o

It involved a pheasant, a fox and a misguided GPS.

Wonderful !

I remember reading in a book when the map makers were drawing maps and didn't know what was in certain areas they would just say/draw... "here be dragons"

Love Dragons !
