A Falls View in Winter

Niagara Falls

Leisure is a form of silence, not noiselessness. It is the silence of contemplation such as occurs when we let our minds rest on a rosebud, a child at play, a Divine mystery, or a waterfall.

~ Fulton J. Sheen

…when I have been in Canada, I have never heard a Canadian refer to an American as a “foreigner.” He is just an “American.” And, in the same way, in the United States, Canadians are not “foreigners,” they are “Canadians.” That simple little distinction illustrates to me better than anything else the relationship between our two countries.

~ Franklin Roosevelt, 1936. 

I’ve always taken ‘The Wizard of Oz’ very seriously, you know. I believe in the idea of the rainbow. And I’ve spent my entire life trying to get over it. Judy Garland

Have you seen the spectacular which is Niagara?

  2. I’ve never been there, but these pictures make feel like I am. They are beautiful!

  3. It’s on my to-do list, Jennifer. Happy Christmas and 2012 travels to you.
