Miniature Monumental

A  L  O  H  A  !
Click on Mount Tam

“- a large granite mountain 
cannot be denied –
 it speaks in silence 
to the very core of 
your being” 
                     Ansel Adams












"Everyone seems to have 
a clear idea of how
 other people should 
lead their lives,
 but none about 
his or her own.” 
                         Paulo Coelho
















“Like all shopkeepers, 
they are deep-down optimists. 
They have to be, because 
every morning they unlock
 the doors to their stores, turn
on the lights, prepare for the day, 
and wait for people to 
walk in and hand them money.” 
                       Robert Spector, 
The Mom & Pop Store: True Stories
 from the Heart of America

Succinctly put Mr. Spector! It must be really hard for small family businesses to survive these days.
