Rising Above

"A secret of love is not voicing negative emotions, but waiting for calmness to return to its post. One who is upset perceives few things with clarity, though Emotion parade itself in the garb of revelation. Calm the heart: Only by so doing can you perceive things as they really are." ~~ J. Donald Walters

"Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people." ~~ Eleanor Roosevelt

These concepts simmer in my mind and heart, hopefully to settle in, and join........ Me.

PostScript: Presuming you took the photos, Cherie, where were they taken? Breathtaking!

Annie Annie Annie dear friend, thanks for the encouraging feedback! Yes, I took those photos. The sunset scene was taken on the day we went sailing, at Fern Ridge. The impatiens are growing in our little backyard garden, still blooming prettily though it be October.
