Imagine you saw a colour in your dream, which you have never seen before. It doesn’t consist of any colours or shades that you know. Trying to describe that colour would be as difficult as trying to believe that there is enough love & compassion in the world so every human can feel happiness.
Do you think this is possible? Can you do this? I think some people would have more difficulty than others…maybe it’s a matter of how much strength and faith we carry in ourselves…
Sometimes we take things for granted…at times, we tend to put too much emphasis on the ‘big things’ in life, and we probably don’t STOP to enjoy the little things – which, if you think about it, add up to color your experiences and make things better and brighter.
Here’s a refreshing blog about all the great ‘little’ things that make life good. 1000 Awesome Things counts down to 1000 awesome things, with a new post every day. Now, I wonder what happens when it hits 1,000?

Recently I came across this in a magazine. I’ve never heard of this person or the quote, but it struck me because it’s the kind of stuff I’ve been thinking about lately.
Do you ever ask yourself other versions of the below? Or wonder why you don’t take more chances? Leaps of faith?
It seems like a simple enough question to understand, but how many of us put off answering it?
I just experienced my 1st caucus. A few observations of interest to me:
1. When I drove up to my caucus, I was taken aback by the line. It wrapped around the corner of the church. I was thankful it wasn’t -10 degrees like it has been lately.
2. Once inside, I noticed that 95% of the crowd looked to be 35 or under. Gave me encouragement when I saw us younger people out, trying to instigate change.
3. The voting process was so easy. And surprisingly non-technical, as I thought it might be. I wrote my name, address, email, phone number, and district on a sheet of paper. Then I was handed a piece of paper that looked like it was meant for covering a Bingo game card. I was slightly confused as to how to cast my vote. After wandering over to what looked like a paper-wrapped shoebox that said “ballots”, I firmly wrote “Barack Obama”. And dropped the little piece of paper inside the slot.
If you’re planning on going to caucus on Tues. 2/5, consider snapping a few pictures for The Polling Place Photo Project.
via The New York Times:
“The Polling Place Photo Project is a nationwide experiment in citizen journalism that encourages voters to capture, post and share photographs of this year’s primaries, caucuses and general election. By documenting local voting experiences, participants can contribute to an archive of photographs that captures the richness and complexity of voting in America.”
“Citizen journalism” – love it.
