When I was in Piazza di Spagna, in Rome, I watched (along with others) how many locals came to drink water from the fountain there. The people beside me said to each other “Oh my goodness, how disgusting, people just drink water from anywhere,” while the whole time, I was thinking “Oh my goodness, how wonderful, people can drink water from anywhere.” We can be in the exact same place, looking at the exact same thing, but see that thing in a completely different way. You can go around the world, and go to all the beautiful places, but never be happy, because happiness is something that you bring inside of you, it is not where you are or what you are looking at, but it is how you are and how you look at.  C.

      Marfa is about 25 miles west of here. It is a small community with what appears to be more and more money and also lots of artists. Have you heard of the TV show called I Love Dick with Kevin Bacon? It was filmed in Marfa.

    Given my December 30 experience at SeaTac leaving Seattle for Spokane your photo & quote says it all in more ways that I can say. Without a long story CFs included trying to find a simple water fountain! Like I said, long story – – –
