EVERY DAY ACTS OF PEACE
EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY

Home is where the heart is,
a camera is an artist's heart -
every shutter-click is a heart beat.

by Karin Lisa Atkinson 

"Dance of Our Ancestors, Dance For Our Children"
Quote: "Treat the earth well: 
it was not given to you by your parents, 
it was loaned to you by your children. 
We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors; 
we borrow it from our Children. 
We are more than the sum of our knowledge, 
we are the products of our imagination. "
