Art and the philosophy of life

Special Request:   In case you haven’t heard about this on the news, I’m going to share it now in this newsletter.  There is a gentleman from the US Marines who will be turning 104 years old on his birthday; Major Bill White, USMC (RET).  When asked if there would be anything he would like for his birthday, he requested people to send him Valentine Day cards. 

“I’ll save every one of them like I’ve been saving little things that have come up until right now,” White told KTXL “And they’ll be a personal part of my history.”

White explained to the outlet that he spends a great deal of time scrapbooking — one of his favorite hobbies — which has led to a large collection of mementos that he’d like to improve with a few kindhearted Valentine’s cards.

Here is a link to a newscast who interviewed him:
