Hello greetings and good wishes.ReplyDelete
Lovely photo. Each photo tells a story.
Your quote is really true. If we are quiet we will hear more and understand more. I remember the saying AN EMPTY VESSEL MAKES THE MOST NOISE. When we understand more we judge better, talk wisely and act with precision.
Most of the time we interrupt people when they are talking and fail to understand what they are trying to convey. This leads to friction and misunderstanding and needless animosity.
I agree peace is within but disquiet is also within. It all depends on what we focus our thoughts. If we think of all the blessings we have and have a grateful heart, if we think of the many things we have achieved in life, if we think of all the happy moments we had, if we think of the innumerable times we overcame difficult situations, then we will surely be filled with peace, calm and quiet and needless to say happiness.
Love your sky shots and of course your little partner!ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos and quotes, Carol! The last photos is of an exceptional creature :)ReplyDelete
By the way, I loved the quote by Ram Dass. Did you know there is a retreat this weekend and is viewable online? Check Ram Dass's website, if interested.

Beautiful series as always Carol. The little boy with the stick , so intent, makes my heart smile! It's so good to see kids enjoying the things kids have always enjoyed ... No electronics or noisy toys in sight. Your pictures are always a sort of poetry. And they look like spring today!ReplyDelete
Great post .... so many great captures!ReplyDelete

That tree is fascinating! Love it. Love that reflection on the water too. Beautiful.ReplyDelete
These are nice pictures, Carol. I am glad that you saved Art, the best, for the last. She is very alert, a cute doggie.ReplyDelete
The picture of the yardstick so close to the tyke's eye made me wince. I poked a stick like that into my eye several years ago. After the bandages came off and my sight began to straighten out I discovered that I no longer needed to wear glasses. It was the eye that needed the most correction.
I can see why you like the textures and tones on that tree.ReplyDelete
