Surround Yourself With People Who Are Talented

I love this photograph! It was taken by my friend Stacey, who has never taken a photography class in her life. While I can take a fairly decent picture, I will never be told I should make a living at it. She, however, has natural talent. Her photos are uniformly fantastic. We have more art on the walls at the Basilica than you can count but I am going to find a spot for this photo.
It's a wonderful thing to have talented friends and family. We have friends who are painters, actors, out-of-this-world cooks, gardeners, opera buffs, flag corps coaches, musicians, glassblowers, welders, teachers, psychologists (always handy), salespeople who can sell anything and academics that are dedicated to knowledge. We have friends that chronicle our lives through photos and mementos. That will come in handy when we are too old to remember who or where we are. We have friends that are wine freaks, readers, and travel buffs. Friends who work for NGOs in India and friends that volunteer for tons of causes. We love them all and feel privileged to be a part of their lives. Thanks to everyone who makes our life more interesting. You are all always welcome at the Basilica. And thanks Stacey, for this fabulous photograph.

I love being around talented people which is why I keep coming back here! I get to say, "Oh yeah, she's my friend." Gives me street cred.

Love this photo! It tells a story. I first thought it may have been from the family farm on crooked creek! Love your writing also! Keep it up and before long you and Travis will be sitting pretty.
