Let there be light ... inside. Time may have worn out our outer body -- poorer vision, coarser skin, shallower smile, etc. What drives us day in and day out is the passion inside. It's passion that keeps the climber to reach the crest of the Alps, the writer to word the most sensational sentence, the composer to craft the most gracious notes, and the faithful to follow the All Mighty God. When you observe any of these within you, you've got the flame. Keep fanning it -- not only for your own sake, but for other cold hearts nearby.
I am a fan of good view. If I can afford it, I'd like to live in a house with good view towards the hill or ocean. The space can open your mind inside. And you can truly attach something of value to your thinking -- not necessarily materialistic things, but some things that really last and propel you to the next higher level.
So ... enjoy the view ... attach value to it ... and travel lightly.
