Pictures say 1000 words

I will keep this brief.  One of my goals for the past few years has been to share joy through pictures. If you check out my twitter feed it typically has pictures to check out.  All this in an effort to share our story and spread joyful moments with others.  This past week I spent some time checking out pictures past and present.  Here are a few that I hope will make you smile, think and reflect.

Special thanks to the photo contributors:

Do you have a picture that lifts you up? Makes you think? or Simply makes you smile?

  1. Ben, you nailed it! I love the photos you've shared in this post as much as the others you contribute regularly. The photo of the ant pushing the raindrop is one of my favorites. In fact, for about a year, that was my I-pad screensaver...there to remind me of the important work we do everyday as educators, as well as the challenges that are faced by so many with whom we encounter.

    After successfully weathering a tough year of change, I decided to change the photo. What did I replace it with? A photo I had taken this summer, from the back of a paddle board. It was of my six-year-old son, succeeding in his first attempt to do it, success evident from the beaming smile on his face.

    Thanks for the consistent inspiration, Ben!
