About Carol A. Hand

What matters are not the titles I’ve held or university degrees I earned or the size of a house or bank account. It’s really what I’ve learned from ordinary people like me whom I’ve met along the way. They taught me to live with gratitude and give thanks for each new day.

    • Thank you for your lovely comments, Robbie. I took a WP photography class not too long ago. Alas, the equipment I have is inexpensive, but I do the best I can. I just wish I could capture what I see. 🙂
