“The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with eager feet, Until it joins some larger way Where many paths and errands meet. And whither then? I cannot say” ― J.R.R.

"We, the People, recognize that we have responsibilities as well as rights; that our destinies are bound together; that a freedom which only asks, ‘What’s in it for me,’ a freedom without a commitment to others, a freedom without love or charity or duty or patriotism, is unworthy of our founding ideals, and those who died in their defense.” - Barack Obama #washingtondc #washingtonmonument #memorial - via Instagram http://ift.tt/2iSEhaR

The building where I work is on the site of a former rock quarry. Last night, fog from the water in the quarry froze on the trees, creating this beautiful winterscape. I regret not having a camera with me today other than my phone. - via Instagram http://ift.tt/2ieK4Kz
