Rolling Stone, 1983


A virtual image is formed at the position where the paths of the principal rays cross when projected backward from their paths beyond the lens. Although a virtual image does not form a visible projection on a screen, it is no sense "imaginary", i.e., it has a definite position and size and can be "seen" or imaged by the eye, camera, or other optical instrument.   
A reduced virtual image if formed by a single negative lens regardless of the object position. An enlarged virtual image can be formed by a positive lens by placing the object inside the principal focal point.

I am so thankful.

I am so thankful for the people and situations that try to test+push my patience, balance, self-love+respect. I may trip sometimes and I have fallen before. 

My fear has gotten the best of me. My anger has gotten the best of me. But, choice is a friend.

The choice to be better than before, to forgive, let go and shine on. The walk of life continues to be blessed with love and understanding, even through the darkest hours. 

I am so thankful. 

Day in and day out - my pursuit is a challenge. 

I am so thankful for those who help me pursue my happiness + especially those who try to destroy it.

"I've been examining my values lately, and determining whether or not I like the feelings that result from those values." 
"What's an example of one of your values?" 
"I'm very competitive." 
"And what's a feeling that results from being competitive?" 
"How does competitiveness result in jealousy?" 
"When you have a competitive mindset, you tend to view the world in terms of winners and losers. So you resent other people getting recognition, because you somehow believe that less recognition is available to you. I'm learning that this is a false mindset. There's not a fixed amount of success and recognition in the world. So another person's accomplishments don't diminish the accomplishments available to you."
