Saturday, July 31, 2010 worries...

"difficult times have
helped me understand better
than before how infinitely
rich and beautiful life is in
every way and that so
many things that one
goes worrying about
are of
no importance whatsoever."
~isak dinesen
my day is grey.
and rain.
i hope that there
is sunshine.
where you are.
light + objects = shadows
you must have the two
to make the third.
and the answers
to this equation
can be found
no worries today.
release them to the wind.
just BE.

Such simple lines to make such dramatic impact. Very much enjoyed this. I've also been enjoying your website. Lovely world you live in.

Great shadow shot and such wise words, Robin! Hope you get some sunshine before the weekend is over. It's been gray here every morning, but by noon it has burned off and we've had glorious blue skies -- supposed to do the same today! Wish I could send some your way!

The gray cannot darken the sunshine in our hearts. As time goes by, the wood may become weathered, but the grain of life, like the wood, is more pronounced. The beauty never gets old...

no worries here as well! grey skies are here...but that means that the temp is a bit cooler today :)
Love the simplicity of you shadow and your thoughts, as always!
Hope you have a super weekend as well!

It's very grey and very rainy and very windy and very chilled my way today! The only thing we are waiting on is hail! It's predicted! Fortunately I was able to get a few hours of sun last Sunday and hence my shadow shot for today!

Lovely subtle shadows round this join of woods! A very interesting photo!

Great photo. Great advice!

Sam said...

Love the simplicity of this shot. Very calming somehow - or maybe it's the words of Isak Dinesen. They are true and profound - thank you!

Awesome shot, and the verse is so relevant to us all.

Grey and rain here too..

Love the other photos you have taken this week.

Beverley Baird said...

Love your shadow shot and the great quote. Oh how true is that!
Have a great weekend!

Hey Harriet said...

I had a few grey days during the week and I'm so thankful to see sunshine for the weekend! I hope that there is sunshine for you soon also! Gorgoeus photo!

Unique Shadow Shot. Is it part of an aged lawn chair?? Do tell.

We had thunder/lightening and rain here this morning. Scared my dogs so we all were in bed together.hehe. Then the sun came out around 8am and it was a glorious day! Have a good week.
