Notations On Our World (W-End Edition) : As A New Week Dawns....

As we went to press, our team was on the prowl with two key developments out of France and Iran.   Tthe Presidential Vote in France is continuing and the Presidential Campaign in Iran is continuing with outlandish claims and attacks that were exposed over the past two weeks by of the Farsi Service of the Voice of America.   President Rouhani, though, took time out of the Campaign to visit the site of the Mining Disaster that claimed the lives of 23 miners.     The Iranian Foreign Minister also has just arrived in Afghanistan for Talks as the Afghan Security situation continues to worsen with reports that the Trump Administration is considering an increase in US Forces to deal with the worsening Security Situation that has brought into question the very viability of the Afghan Government.  Our team will prepare some updated notations on both later on in the week.   

As we look to a new week, our team decided to choose this latest courtesy of +Jonathan Huie that captures the essence of what we hope to achieve through our on-going work as we embark upon the curation & development of our properties: 

There are no small acts of kindness.
Every compassionate act makes large the world.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

Truly I tell you,
whatever you did for one of the least of these
brothers and sisters of mine,
you did for me.
- Jesus (Matthew 25:40) 

For it is in giving that we receive.
- St. Francis of Assisi

It's the little things you do
that can make a big difference.
- Bob Proctor

Our opportunity is to visualize a kinder world.
To sing glad songs of tomorrow -
imagining a world of love -
of the whole world filled with love.
To offer our hand... often.
To breathe deeply and honor ourselves.
To pause and contemplate... just because.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
