"Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes… including you." – Anne Lamott

I love this quote by the author Anne Lamott because it speaks to something profound.

BaobabTree

This photo from Madagascar (one of my bucket list destinations) shows some of the most unusual and fascinating trees on the planet.
