Greetings From Sarasota ~

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step...

Arvid and I are back in Sarasota. Sarasota is a city
 south of Tampa on Florida’s Gulf Coast that was once
 the winter home of the Ringling Brothers Circus. 

Arvid and I arrived early yesterday, and we did 
not waste much time.  Little "party" going on and 
a little time to do some sightseeing on our own.  
Christmas spirit is everywhere and I love it.

Today, Sarasota hosts a number of cultural institutes,
 notably the Ringling Museum of Art, which
 showcases old masters and modern art. 

Sarasota is also the gateway to miles of beautiful
beaches with fine sand and shallow waters,
such as Lido Beach and Siesta Key Beach.

It's what's know as one of Florida's hidden gems. 
 Just you, the sound of the waves and the breeze
 of the palm trees.  It's definitely paradise.

Greetings to all from beautiful Sarasota.

Today I plan to explore a little more on my own.  
Go to my favorite Indian restaurant, and do a little 
Christmas shopping.  Perfect day if you ask me.

A year from now you may wish you had started today.
Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead
of a second-rate version of somebody else...
