Feeling Humble...The General

Every once in a while, most of us need a reminder of our place in the general order of things. I recently came across a picture that was taken seven years ago of myself standing in front of the General Sherman Giant Sequoia Tree, which is the world's largest and living thing, and one of the oldest. I remember feeling rather small and insignificant next to that tree. It's not that people are small and insignificant. But every once in a while, we need a subtle reminder to keep it all in perspective.


Thanks for reading.

Hey Matt,
Thanks for the kind words on my blog. Nice blog you've got here. As soon as I saw yours I figured you'd whup my ass in the battle. Pretty trees and nice layout beat angry political rants any day!

PS. I definitely did not mean that as a back handed compliment, but rereading it I could see how my own self deprecating shtick might come off that way. I'll definitely give you more of a read when the opportunity arises, so keep on battling.
