I was communicating with a friend who lives near the Dalai Lama in Daramashalla, (Northern Mountains of India). She says it is like "living in Heaven", yet this is while admiring a local coastal photograph of mine. So I agree with statement below:
No matter where life takes you the place that you stand at any given moment is holy ground. Love hard, and love wide and love long and you will find the goodness in it.
