The problem with masks...

From one of the most inspiring authors of my generation...

"We are people of both dignity and depravity. The hurricane blew back more than roofs; it blew the mask off the nature of mankind. The main problem in the world is not Mother Nature, but human nature. Strip away the police barricades, blow down the fences, and the real self is revealed. " - Max Lucado

How ironic... the Mardi Gras being what it is with masks and other traditions. To then read this quote. For now, those masks have been taken away. What has been left? True human nature.

I skim a lot of blogs, and so far yours is in the Top 3 of my list of favorites. I'm going to dive in and try my hand at it, so wish me luck.

It'll be in a totally different area than yours (mine is about digital scrapbooking) I know, it sounds strange, but it's like anything, once you learn more about it, it's pretty cool. It's mostly about digital scrapbooking related articles and subjects.

Thank you, Mr. Smallman. I have no idea who you are... but that was a nice compliment this morning.

I look forward to seeing more of what you have up your sleeve w/ your digital scrapbooking.
