Liberty and Pursuit of the Hammock

A little photo essay for you.

Today I gazed upon Lady Liberty in all her glory. Look at her! Isn't she a grand ol' gal? I got chills looking at her in the bright sunlight. Here she is just peeking through the leaves.

She means different things to different people. And that was evident by the many different types of people there viewing her. What struck me most was there were at least 7 different cultures that I noticed easily just by clothing and languages represented. How wonderful, isn't it?

Isn't that what this country was all about once? Isn't that what liberty is supposed to stand for? The idea that anyone can come here and have a chance to live a life? Anyway, I'm not going to soapbox too much.

When I came home, I napped most peacefully in my beloved hammock in the September afternoon sun. What a lucky soul.

It was a great day to be a free-thinking, patriotic, no-laws-on-my-body, privileged-to-vote American.

Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
