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.

StarCosmosBleu from Bedford.Qc, Canada

I always wondered how the rock get to be eaten like that (sponge look) you think its sea bugs or something in that order that does that......a nice capture

20 Jun 2011 6:53am

@StarCosmosBleu: Thank you very much Marcel! I do not think this is caused by anything other than the organic composition of the rock and the reaction to the constant wash of the waves....... ;-)
