We cannot legislate morality and we cannot pass a bill that stops irresponsibility. But we can work together to be more of a connected, concerned, supportive, accountable, mutually encouraging community.
Today my theme is still the emergence of spring color here in the woods around our home in Wake Forest.

My new Nikon D3400 – photos of the spring colors around Wake Forest. Happy birthday to me!
