“At times our own light goes out
and is rekindled by a spark from another person.
Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude
of those who have lighted the flame within us.”
Albert Schweitzer

Honey Just Bee

Honey Just Bee

“LIFE is a mosaic of pleasure and pain – grief is an interval between two moments of joy. Peace is the interlude between two wars. You have no rose without a thorn; the diligent picker will avoid the pricks and gather the flower. There is no bee without the sting; cleverness consists in gathering the honey nevertheless.”
Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Ant No Thing to Fight About… There’s Plenty of Light

Ant No Thing to Fight About... There's Plenty of Light

“There are three types of approaches towards the Lord; the Eagle type, which swoops down on the target with a greedy swiftness and suddenness which, by its very impact, fails to secure the object coveted; the Monkey type, which flits hither and thither, from one to another, unable to decide which is tasty; and the Ant type which moves steadily, though slowly towards the object which it has decided is desirable. The ant does not hit the fruit hard and makes it fall away; it does not pluck all the fruits it seeks; it appropriates just as much as it can assimilate and no more. Do not fritter away the time allotted to you for sojourning on the earth in foolish foppery and fanciful foibles, which always keep you outdoors. When are you to walk indoors into the warmth and quiet of your own interior? Retire into solitude and silence now and then; experience the joy derivable only from them.”
Atharva Veda

“PLATITUDE, n. The fundamental element and special glory of popular literature. A thought that snores in words that smoke. The wisdom of a million fools in the diction of a dullard. A fossil sentiment in artificial rock. All that is mortal of a departed truth. A jelly-fish withering on the shore of the sea of thought. A desiccated epigram.”
Ambrose Bierce

Caught in The Act : The Butterfly Emerges

Caught in The Act : The Butterfly Emerges

“I embrace emerging experience.
I participate in discovery.
I am a butterfly.
I am not a butterfly collector.
I want the experience of the butterfly.”
William Stafford

WOW… so those dials in Lightroom are powerful creatures. After yesterday’s dive off the cliff of creativity this beauty came to life! Or was I pushed? See what you did Ron Clifford ;o). Something tells me 2013 is going to be a BEAUTIFUL year!

“Most people desperately wish to be free.
But they are confined by the habitat,
not niche, in one corner of the world that
some carve out for them.
They are limited to themselves,
and to much fewer possibilities
by the narrowness of
the boundary limits enforced.
They really wished the conditions
stretched from zero to infinity.”
V. S. Naipaul
