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.

“We are stardust, we are golden, 
we are billion year old carbon, 
and we got to get ourselves back to the garden. 
The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, 
the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies 
were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. 
The seeds from Ramanujan’s garden 
have been blowing on the wind 
and have been sprouting all over the landscape. 
Life begins perpetually … 
Life, forever dying to be born afresh, 
forever young and eager, 
will presently stand upon this earth as upon a footstool, 
and stretch out its realm amidst the stars.
We are made of starstuff.” 

~ H. G. Wells 1866-1946 (United Kingdom), 
Joni Mitchell 1943- (Canada), 
Carl Sagan 1934-1996 (USA), 
Freeman Dyson 1923- (United Kingdom)
