This has always been one of my favorite essays on life. And I'm sure everyone has heard and read it hundreds of times. If I am not mistaken, it was read at my graduation from Bethel Park High School, Pittsburgh, PA, in 1965. It would be lovely to include a copy of it in the card or gift of any graduate.
I used a photo of a Panama City Beach sunset that I took back in October as the background but had to fiddle with the photo so that the words would be visible. (Click photo to enlarge.) So the colors here are not "real" - they are gorgeous on the original photo.
I have the Les Crane CD that features "Desiderata" - he speaks it nicely with a chorus group in the background. I was happy to find it on YouTube! Hope you enjoy it!
I am blessed to reside in Alabama about half of the year and in Panama City Beach, Florida, the other half. I enjoy time with my family and friends. TV-watching and reading and internet browsing are also important to me. I love creating and altered art and learning from my artist friends. Life is very good!
