  • It could have as easily been a Celtic shore that these two young girls shared together on one of the first mild days of this cold winter season alongside the river in Spokane, Washington, as they sat along those rushing melt waters watching, wondering...conversing, enthralled.

    I sometimes marvel at the way young people easily accept sharing and enjoying the beauty that surrounds them in ways that we older folks sometimes fail to appreciate. I guess that beauty knows beauty, and youth knows better than age in these situations.

    We can always learn from others, no matter how young they may be.
