heaven in a wild flower

To see a world in a grain of sand 
     and heaven in a wild flower 
Hold infinity in the palms of your hand 
     and eternity in an hour.
--William Blake (1757-1827) English Poet

Two links to share today... 
  • A spectacular video to inspire, de-stress, and put things in perspective. (once the video starts, be sure to click the 'expand to full screen' arrow symbol to get the full effect)
  • A documentary on the short-lived State of Franklin coming soon to PBS.  "Formed after the American Revolution, the State of Franklin existed before the State of Tennessee. When North Carolina ceded its western land to the federal government in the 1780s, pioneers in the area formed their own state. Named for Benjamin Franklin, the area included much of upper East Tennessee and spread from what's now the Tennessee-Virginia border to present-day Sevier and Blount counties. While it failed its statehood bid by two Congressional votes, Franklin existed from 1784 to 1788."
