A World of FriendsWhile we’re not acquainted – at least not yet, you’re still my friend, even though we’ve not met. I value our friendship, and reach out my hand, even though all are strangers – in quite different lands! * Each day an adventure, as life’s journey we take, if we travel together, oh the friends we shall make. We’re a company of strangers, but not for long, let’s build more relations – this will make us strong. * We do need each other, so we can survive, weathering the storms, we’ll all stay alive. Overcome our fears, our worries, concerns, counting on each other – that’s how we will learn. * By needing each other … the seeds we can sow, through sharing and giving – that’s how we will grow. I reach out my hand, to you on this day - “Hello my friend … are you going my way?” Penny L Howe, 2014 * Hoping everyone’s week is proceeding well. Take care of you, ~ Penny
My theme today is LIFE. I posted this same saying and a different background on my Penny Quotes blog and I’m going to post another background with this same saying on a few other various multimedia platforms today, because nothing … nothing is more vital for humans, right now, than to recognize the importance and inviolability or sanctity of life … ALL LIFE.
Well here we are. It is the year 2014. Nothing seems to be larger than interactive internet and the innovative technological inventions that permeate all, totally and completely overwhelming, and we are extremely addicted to same.
So what’s next? I don’t know but I believe it will be exciting and a very good thing. The global internet (as we know and understand it today) has brought people from all parts of the planet closer together. There is the business to business aspect of partnering world-wide (ecommerce), for not only multinational concerns but also the small business entrepreneur, and even greater than this is the private citizen’s amazing ability to communicate almost immediately, anywhere with anyone.
More humans on the planet are understanding that the passion of a thing (fires the hard work that is necessary and) can produce results. And building reality from a dream, happens faster with a team and team spirit. (One only has to look at Silicon Valley to fully be aware of this.) Many, many, more humans are realizing there is potential, and that their dreams can become reality. The internet fosters those dreams and this is a very good thing, I believe.
In conclusion I’d just like to add, there is no doubt or question that we humans are the proud parents of the Internet and while our baby continues to grow, we will continue to learn and grow with it. Why? Our passion for the creative, our need to grow as humans and our desire to be all we can be … come what may!
Congratulations to Jack Ma, his wonderful team and of course Alibaba … May you live long and prosper!

What does life mean to you …
… and are you a reflection of how you view life?
The word “Life” – as defined using the following words and meanings from Merriam-Webster Dictionary:
- The quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from something not living.
- The sequence of physical and mental experiences that make up the existence of an individual.
- The period from birth to death.
- A specific phase of earthly existence.
- A way of living.
- A vital or living being (life form).
- A period of existence.
- (And my own thought - Something More that we don’t understand but know to exist.)
Life to me is expansive – An unknown but very real and existing essence of a “force” existing in the Universe, the underlying glue in the Universe. Therefore all are imbibed with this “something” that is currently beyond our understanding or rationale. Everything connected to everything else. Always without exception.
I think that perhaps when we define and reflect who we are based solely on life experiences we can forget that sometimes we are more than the sum of all the parts we know of. That, in fact, there is always the potential for … something more waiting to happen to us … or for us to pass on to others.
Keep your life force vital and growing,
All my love to you,
