"I was just thinking that of all the trails in this life there is one that matters most. It is the trail of a true human being.
I took this photo in 2016 before Little Blue, the house on stilts, was torn down. As I look at how photography has changed over the past five years since this photo was taken I am both amazed at the tools we have and what we can do as well as concerned how we use them. Through the magic of any number of photography development programs we can completely change the essence of a photo. We can, if we desire, change day into night or replace a dull grey sky with a vibrant sunset. What concerns me is how do we know what is real?
What will you do with the day you have been given?
I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.
We came across this small chapel and cemetery above the Arctic Circle in Haukland, Lofoten Islands, Norway. We arrived by bus in a small tour group. The wind was blowing in the 30 MPH range. It was February and bitter cold. No one wanted to get off the bus but we didn't come all that way to sit on a bus. At first only a couple of us got off and walked up the hill to Unstad Chapel. A couple who had tried to camp battled with their tent, struggling to stake it down. They eventually gave up and returned to their car. A few more got off the bus but only a small group walked up this hill where the chapel was.
The movie "Wild" was based on the true story of a young woman named Cheryl Strayed who hiked the Pacific Crest Trail. There are several worthwhile quotes in the movie and book but this one has always been a favorite.
Yes, I know I tilt at windmills. You can see in my posts the ongoing effort to remain positive in such a negative space. It matters not a whit to me. Though many inhabitants of our world seem destined to live in darkness great truths are often right in front of us.
I took this photo a few years ago, not long before Frisco Pier was demolished. The title is a play on words from the 1998 movie, The Last Days of Disco.
At the end of the day is someone's life better because you passed by?
“Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days.
We can live vicariously through tv shows and movies.
Some days you just have to make your own sunshine.
Why do people so often want to hurt and harm others? I think there is a lot of truth in the theory that people are mean to others in order to feel better about themselves.
I see it in your social media posts everyday. Some have a real heart and love towards each other and show it. Others are so full of hate they can't recognize their hate is as bad as the ones they talk about.
The lighthouse has always been a guide to lead ships at sea through dangerous waters.
If I concede that I have never walked in your shoes and faced the problems you have, will you concede that you have never walked in mine?
“There's a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they're absolutely free.
