Your Own Higher Ground
Live in a world of competition
Friends or Foes full of ambition
Set eyes on them causes intimidation
Try to measure up may have limitation
Turn your eyes inward to find your passion
Turn your eyes upward to seek inspiration
Knowing there is only one of you in the whole creation
No one is like you, so create your specialization
With His blessings, target a higher ground with your own expectation

Daily Prompt: Measure
Tuesday Photo Challenge – Broken Highway at Key West
Key West, Florida is the southernmost point in the continent of USA. It’s one of the best places to watch sunset. Key West is humid. The fog came in at nightfall.
The second day of the trip, we drove up and down the Highway to visit other Keys. Apparently, part of the Highway was broken. Instead of repairing, a new section of the Highway was built, parallel to the broken section. The two ends of the new were connected to the original Highway. The broken section was left alone.
We went to the Ernest Hemingway House, I took a photo of the picture of his fishing boat named Pilar. Hemingway regularly fished off the boat in the waters of Key West, Florida. Several of Hemingway’s books were influenced by time spent on the boat, most notably, The Old Man and the Sea and Islands in the Stream.
The winter White House of President Harry S. Truman was his white house away from the White House. Today it is a public Key West museum.
Successful fishing trip! Many birds around were waiting for the scraps from cleaning the fish.
Wreck Museum displayed the treasures found from the shipwreck. Marilyn Monroe’s famous Seven Year Itch status was in front of a theater.
One of the highlights for my husband was his diving trip.

Daily Post: Song
Music speaks to my soul more deeply than written words, or speaking voices. Inspirational songs and hymns are my favorite. I started singing and taking voice lessons when I was a late teenager. Solo singing was my regular engagement. Several major classical music performances I participated in are:
Felix Mendelssohn’s “ELIJAH,” Johannes Brahms “A GERMAN REQUIEM,” and G. F. Handel’s “MESSIAH.”
This year’s Christmas concert of Handel’s MESSIAH rehearsal has already begun last Sunday, October 30, 2016.
The last song in MESSIAH is “Worthy is the Lamb.” The lyrics and the music touch my heart and humble my spirit:
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain, and
Hath redeemed us to God by His blood, to
Receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and
Strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
Blessing and honour, glory and power be
Unto Him that sitteth upon the throne, and
Unto the Lamb, forever and ever. Amen.
