Friday's Journal
Old New Orleans
Carlos Alberto Bau was an accountant by profession, but his
great passion was photography.  Through his photographic lens,
he captured and shared the beauty of his native province of
Mendoza, Argentina with the world.  This is what he was doing
on February 6, 2010, taking photos from the air, when the small
plane in which he was traveling crashed.  He and the two
pilots were killed.
It was through a powerpoint show shared by an e-friend that
I was introduced to Mr. Bau's photos.  I went on to find many
tributes and memorials to him online.
But, his exceptional body of work is the greatest memorial of
all.  The photos on this page are his.
The new day dawns full of promise and possibilities, a fresh canvas upon which
to paint the moments of our lives.  Soon enough the demands of life will claim us,
but - in this moment of awakening - all things seem possible.  -- Author Unknown
Nature never repeats herself and the possibilities of one human soul
will never be found in another.  -- Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Give without hesitation, lose without regret, acquire without meanness.
-- George Sand
It takes strength to be firm,
It takes courage to be gentle.

It takes strength to be certain,
It takes courage to have doubt.

It takes strength to fit in,
It takes courage to stand out.

It takes strength to feel a friend's pain,
It takes courage to feel your own pain.

It takes strength to stand alone,
It takes courage to lean on another.

It takes strength to survive,
It takes courage to live.

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must
carry it with us or we find it not.  -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Serenity isn't freedom from the storm, but peace within the storm.

Today is a gift.  Just think of the possibilities.  -- Eleanor Roosevelt
