Inspiration abounds in the wonderful warm days of summer. Gardens are blooming everywhere we look and everything is green. Even in the hottest days, we find delight and creative ideas in the colors and sounds of the ocean and beach, the warming sun, bright beach umbrellas, garden flowers, green grasses, and palm trees. As Henry James once said, "Summer afternoon - summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language."
Many of our team members are at their BBEST in the heat, and here are some of my favorites for you to enjoy.

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in an ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop. - Mother Teresa

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. - Mark Twain
