  5. I can't decide which I love more, this gorgeous picture or Carl Sagan's quote! Both are just tremendous. The older I get, the more I realize how precious is our time here. Thanks for the reminder, and for something so beautifully visual to accentuate it!!

  16. A big WOW ... just imagine Denise how my One year and three months old grand-daughter would roll-round her little mouth to express this word Wow with a resounding grasp. Yes, she does! If only she can see this beautiful butterfly in a large frame!
