There is more to life
than increasing its speed.
So, after two Aleve, a bag of frozen peas on my knees and a little glass ofDon Julio Añjeo I cuddled up, and it felt like fall.
Anyway, I decided to go through some of my travel photos and see what I could find, from past trips that I'd taken in the fall (that I hadn't already posted.) Most of the photos are between 2008-2014.
I threw in a few of my earth toned artworks in the mix as well.
Happiness is when what you think,
what you say,
and what you do
are in harmony.

Freedom is not worth having
if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.

The weak can never forgive.
Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
When I admire the wonders of a sunset
or the beauty of the moon,
my soul expands
in the worship of the creator.

You must not lose faith in humanity.
Humanity is an ocean;
if a few drops of the ocean are dirty,
the ocean does not become dirty.

This was the post I was planning to put up over the weekend before the attacks in Paris. So many of the Gandhi quotes synchronistically resonate. Along with all of you, I am continuing to keep Paris in my thoughts and prayers, as well as Beirut, Iraq, Syria, Central Africa, those that lost loved ones in the plane crash in Russia, and the 60 million refugees and internally displaced. My dear friend's family also lost a loved one last week, and they are always in my mind and my heart.
Where love is,
God is also.
Blessings and light
