Today is Memorial Day in the U.S., a day for remembering the men and women who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. I have never known death or the feeling of seeing a loved one leave for active duty, so the meaning behind Memorial Day is difficult to experience on a personal level. But what I can feel is that this world is full of beauty, and this life is full of wonder, and I am blessed to feel safe and free thanks to the sacrifices of many.
For many Memorial Day means a day off from work and time to relax. In the sun, snuggled in bed, surrounded by family, or maybe some alone time to clear your mind or explore a creative idea. These images invoke the feelings I hope you can experience on this or any holiday.
