You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do. ~Eleanor Roosevelt

When I'm tired instead of having a siesta, I go and work in my garden

I love quotes that say this. I wish I could take the advice! There are people I want to see but I so hate to fly. Meanwhile, time passes. I must decide.

Thank you! Wonderful road photo too :)

When I see how the road seems long or when it is impossible to see the end of it for instance because of a bend or trees, I walk forward and I am nearer and nearer
