When I opened this card, I was surprised it was for Christmas. There is no maker on the back and it has the cut-away corner frame in old gold that has tarnished. It is delicate and soft, I wish you could feel it.
It sort of suits my mood these days, soft and a bit tarnished, and the flowers,,,well, I think looking forward to a new year, new growth, optimism, and kindness.
The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing. Albert Einstein
"You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream -- the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order -- or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism. Regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would sacrifice freedom for security have embarked on this downward path. Plutarch warned, 'The real destroyer of the liberties of the people is he who spreads among them bounties, donations and benefits.' The Founding Fathers knew a government can't control the economy without controlling people. And they knew when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. So we have come to a time for choosing." --Ronald Reagan
