What Legends Are Made Of

Please turn up the music...

Patina (pat'ne) n. [Fr. It., orig., tarnish] 1. a fine crust of film on bronze or copper usually green or greenish-blue, formed by natural oxidation and often valued as being ornamental. - New World Dictionary of the American Language 2nd ed.



For those of us who hunt for antique treasures, we often place a high value on an object the longer it has gracefully aged over time

for the making of legends.



"Ornamental" in appearance, but a bedrock of wisdom deep below the surface



the patina of age is but a beautiful twinkle of hope to behold

a surface upon which an underlying strength waits for us to compose the unforgettable history of our lives



no matter how small we think it may be.



It is what legends are made of.



DISAPPOINTMENT



HOPE



PERSEVERANCE




VICTORY



and the COURAGE to be YOURSELF and to leave the natural glow of that beautiful patina of age

speak volumes.





WE are the most valuable treasures of all, to be discovered and valued for the weathered strength of our time on earth. What legends are you going to leave behind?
