"A demonstration was once performed to show that a tiny cork could eventually move  a
heavy piece of steel.  An eight foot bar was suspended by a very strong wire.  Nearby,
a small cork hanging by a fine silk thread was swung gently and rhythmically against
the metal.  At first the large object remained apparently motionless, but after being struck
repeatedly for ten minutes, a slight variation could be observed.  At the end of half an
hour the impact of the cork had transferred enough momentum to the bar to make it
swing like a mighty pendulum."  ~Author unknown

"My life shall touch a dozen lives
     before this day is done,
Leave countless marks for good or
     ill ere sets the evening sun.
This is the wish I always wish, the
     prayer I always pray;
Lord, may my life help other lives
     it touches by the way."   ~Unknown

Never underestimate the difference one life can make in our world.  No matter who you
are, no matter how big or small your contribution to others is, it will matter.  You matter!

Thanks to you for stopping by, because it matters to me.  Thanks to my uncle for
capturing this picture recently, and sharing it with us.  Don't you think it is a magical
setting?  Wouldn't you love to sit on the beach and close out your day with this
scene before you?  I would.

Oh that is a gorgeous photo. Thanks to your uncle and you for sharing it with us.
How interesting about that small cork. It really does make a good point, as does the poem. You have just reminded me that even the small things really do matter. I thank you for that, Judy.
