In Search of Beauty

And miles to go before I sleep.  - Robert Frost

...a ways to go.
There always seems an abundance of beauty this time of year ~ and I'm never quite sure if it's the holidays which create the magic needed for more beauty to develop, or if we're just more open to recognizing what's already there around us. Probably a little of both.

One of the most beautiful things coming into my world today was a radio interview with actor Bruce Dern, who discussed his latest film and spoke about his passion for self-improvement:

I didn't come to Hollywood to win awards. I came here to just get better at what I do. This latest one has helped me to get better than just about anything else I've done, but I've still got a ways to go.

Just imagine... if you won Best Actor in the Cannes Film Festival this year ~ and then only thought about the future, hoping to become even better at what you do.

Better yet, just imagine... if you exceeded all expectations and scored top marks in your household's performance reviews this year ~ and then only thought about the future, hoping to become even better at what you do.

Lifelong learning.  

Beautiful!
