    Michael writes about DIFFICULT with so much hope and inspiration. It is accomplishing the impossible and making peace with the problems that will keep on coming. Some small, some big, but none unsolvable. The image I chose for this piece says so much in itself. DIFFICULT is a battle that may lower us to our worst but it can be beaten by doing our very best.
    Congratulations Michael!

    Congratulations on your publication! Volunteering is easy, if you always chose the easiest task. Talking about improving the condition of our earth, is also easy when you talk about it. This piece makes an excellent statement about so many things that we are all dealing with right now. Nicely done. Joni
