Mark Twain said, “The two most important days in life are the day you were born and the day you find out why.”
Oprah Winfrey believes, “Each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint.”
Edwin Elliot added, “By being yourself, you put something wonderful in the world that was not there before” and, like your fingerprints, can never exist again.
To realize your wonderful, unique, never-before-never-again you, Dr. Maulena Karenga suggests asking yourself:

Succeed and Soar’s “Eleanor’s Insights” series is illustrated with my photographs of ‘wild places.’
This week’s image was taken in Glen Canyon, Utah, an amazing world. HooDoos are sandstone sculpted by freeze-thaw cycles and rain. They range from five to one-hundred-fifty feet high and erode at the rate of two to four feet per century. The more durable are fortified with dolomite.
On my circuit from and back to Grand Junction, Colorado [in time to catch the Amtrak home], got to see the “Nefertiti” HooDoo, “Three Gossips,” this grouping and more. Wow!
My art is available as prints on assorted, high-quality papers, framed and on canvas with various borders and widths.
