Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary

“We are sun and moon, dear friend; we are sea and land.
It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other,
to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is:
each the others opposite and complement.”
~ Hermann Hesse ~
“I don’t fit into any stereotypes. And I like myself that way.”
~ C. JoyBell C. ~
“Insist on yourself; never imitate.
Your own gift you can offer with the cumulative force
of a whole life’s cultivation,
but of the adopted talent of another,
you have only an extemporaneous, half possession.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~
This third picture is one of my favorites of the dove on the wire with the crows.
There are times when one can be surrounded by others yet still solitary.
If you have experienced this you know exactly what I mean.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Everyday Life

…with some of my favorite people.

“To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons
and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best
in others; to give of one’s self; to leave the world a bit better,
whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation;
to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived—
this is to have succeeded.”

~ Bessie Anderson Stanley ~
