Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.

Great shot Eric and just the right time for the bird to have it's wings open, as this been tone mapped. One thing, I find the blue umbrella a bit distracting but you may of wanted to include that
