Your mind and soul can choose to think, speak, and act wisely and meaningfully wherever you are at any given time. You live your entire life one moment at a time. You only need to choose to think one wise thought at a time. You only need to choose to say one positive sentence (or word) at a time. You only need to choose one meaningful action at a time. These all add up.

The Netherlands in May
At first glance, it looks like a giant child armed with a box of crayons has been set loose
upon the landscape. Vivid stripes of purple, yellow, red, pink, orange and green make up
a glorious patchwork. Yet far from being a child's sketchbook, this is, in fact, the northern
Netherlands in the middle of tulip season. The Dutch landscape in May is a kaleidoscope
of color as the tulips burst into life. The bulbs are planted in late October and early November.
More than three billion tulips are grown each year and two-thirds of the vibrant blooms are exported,
mostly to the U.S. and Germany .
Their dazzling colors are thanks to the years in the 17th century when tulip mania swept the
globe and the most eye-catching specimens changed hands for a small fortune. But like a
Rainbow, this colorful landscape is a short-lived phenomenon. When the flowers are gone,
the land will be cultivated for a rather more mundane crop of vegetables. The Netherlands
produce more than nine million bulbs a year.
For those who want to see fields of tulips but don't want to go to the Netherlands, a lot of big fields of tulips are also grown north of Seattle, WA --Conway, Mount Vernon area if I remember correctly. They'll be seen from I-5.
