We are the Past, Present & Future

Endless ripples in the Ocean & the Sky.
We stand upon the legacy of the generations that came before us. And we in turn are building the future, while we create our lives.

We spin a delicate tapestry everyday. Little by little we are carving out the future, forging new bonds upon the foundation we have inherited.

Our collective ancestors, not just our family by blood, but all the people that help build our communities are responsible for creating our lives today. They contributed to our liberties as well as our problems.  

And like ripples in a puddle, these deeds, whether good or bad, get bigger & wider.  We are the water,  cresting with each wave as it rises and falls. We are the past, present and future. We are responsible.

"Your future is whatever you make it, so make it a good one." - Doc. Emmett BrownBack to the Future

Hello Elizabeth:
These are words which give one much food for thought. At times we do wonder what kind of a future we are building for those who will come after us.

Responsibility, yes. A concept not very widely understood, I'm afraid.

I have been thinking about community lately. I appreciate your insight that they contribute to our liberties as well as our problems. I want to be a better member of my communities. Thank you for the lovely photo. Was it taken on your honeymoon?
