    Hi Meryl, here are a few more lines for these social butterflies “pining” for the finer things. “We need stuff. Could use some more. From the store. Always want what’s behind that door. What’s the route. For our trip. You’ve arrived. Get a grip. “.

    Meryl, I love this photo, it’s exquisite. A very powerful message in your words as well – we in North America are spoiled; we have so much more than most, and yet are always wanting more … I think if there were more ‘feeding of the soul’, it would be a far better thing. Loved your post. ~ Julie

    • Yes…we have so much…I pray that as Americans we can shift our gaze to the beauty around us and inside us…perhaps, it’s happening…but slowly…oh so slowly…gratifying comment, Julie!
