Cinco de Mayo

This Cinco de Mayo stamp was issued by the US Postal Service in 1998. They printed 32 million stamps. I was a little curious about finding out who the artist was that designed the stamp. As usual I spent too much searching - using Google. I finally ended up at the USPS site. Why didn't I start there? Obviously had a brain malfunction. But nevertheless, I did discover that Carl T. Herrman designed the stamp.

Living consciously...

What we think, that we become. - Ghandi

I would have thought that answering What matters most to me in my life? would be a difficult exercise. Oddly, once I separate out what I do from who I am makes the answer simpler and but maybe a little more difficult to express. What I do, the various roles and activities I perform are important. I love and value my family and friends. I even like my stuff and I want a better world for myself and the future generations. I want to continue to move in the direction of better living but I can only do it one step at a time. I think what matters most is that I'm a keen observer of my own experiences and that I make the best of the each moment I have.
