When you look at the skyline of a city what does it make you think of? I look at the skyline and high-rise apartment buildings, I think of not just concrete structures but the life within those concrete walls. When you look at the colours in this painting, they are the colours of life. Red is the colour of energy, strength, power, and passion. Yellow is the colour of sunshine, positivity, and optimism. Green is the colour of trees, and plants, the colour of growth, nourishment, nurturing and creativity. Blue is the colour of water that is the essential life force. White is associated with peace, calmness and tranquility. Aren't these all the things that sustain the human raace?
Life in big cities is very different from life in small rural communities. In bigger cities people who dwell in high rise buildings hardly know their neighbours. They tend to be reserved because they don't know who to trust. When I look at these buildings, I think of the colours of life that reside within these walls, the hopes, the dreams, and the ideas that materialize in life changing events. I think of the knowledge, the creativity, the strength, and passion that propels people towards accomplishing their goals. What is important is looking beyond what is in front of us and looking beyond the tangible that is visible. Afterall these are the colours of life that unite us because they are the colours each of us possesses.

Knowing where one wants to go, setting the goal and focusing on it are important in order to succeed. If one can eliminate distractions and stay focused on a single goal, success is not hard to attain. Sometimes it takes a young six-year old to remind us of this. It is based on a true story.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
