Beautiful...(another photo not taken by me)...

All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost. The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring; Renewed shall be blade that was broken: The crownless again shall be king.

~Quote from "Return of the King" by Tolkien

America the Beautiful!!!

Oh, beautiful for spacious skies,For amber waves of grain,For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain!America! America! God shed his grace on thee, And crown thy good with brotherhoodFrom sea to shining sea.

Oh, beautiful for pilgrim feet,Whose stern, impassioned stress A thoroughfare of freedom beat Across the wilderness! America! America! God mend thine ev’ry flaw, Confirm thy soul in self-control,Thy liberty in law.

Oh, beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife,Who more than self their country loved, And mercy more than life! America! America!May God thy gold refine,Till all success be nobleness,And ev’ry gain divine.

Oh, beautiful for patriot dreamThat sees beyond the years Thine alabaster cities gleam,Undimmed by human tears!America! America! God shed his grace on thee,And crown thy good with brotherhoodFrom sea to shining sea.

Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.
