Life is for LIVING


One of the most tragic things I know about human nature
is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden
over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are
blooming outside our windows today.

A good reminder for us all! Enjoy your life, whatever it is and don't forget to do some scribbling outside the lines...

That is the secret of contentment. Living in the present and being satisfied and happy with what we have.

Great quote. I think photography helps me appreciate the world around me, otherwise I might miss a lot more than I do.

I am trying to find the beauty in snow, sleet and freezing rain...

Maybe it's in the warm blanket over my lap and the steam rising from a fragrant cup of tea...

I have found that when we don't believe in our thoughts but pay attention to our feelings in this one moment, we can't go wrong. Enjoy your Garden.

I too am a worrier. I hate it but it's hard not to be when you have two teenage daughters. However, that said, given the right moment, and a sense of peace all that worry slips away. We're all a work in progress.

Beautiful photo and poem : )

A great quote and a super photograph.
I find myself always looking ahead to a more ideal time of year. Now I await spring and summer, but when it is hot and humid, I get anxious for the cooler days of autumn and when it is really bad, I even long for weather like this Still I find that with increasing age, I do tend to treasure the present more than I used to.

Lovely words that contain good advice. Very Beautiful capture.

I love this quote. I need to remind myself to take time out every day to enjoy life - it's so easy for me to get caught up in work or household things.

Gorgeous photo! The colors are so very pretty!
