On the corner of Moreland and Ponce de Leon in Atlanta, sits a colorful roadside produce stand. I stopped to pick up peaches and proceeded to forget the purpose for stopping when Raymond Ramsey, the proprietor, greeted me with a melodic Jamaican accent. As we chatted I became mesmerized by his exuberant expressions and gestures. He was full of life and wonderful stories and exuded optimism and happiness. He spoke of the importance of following one’s passion. He remarked,” My friend, you gotta paint your picture before your life is over”. Have you painted your picture today?
