It’s been two weeks since our return so I thought I’d take a break from the story of our French adventure and include some photos that I’ve taken in the last week. I did not pick up my camera for many days, but now I’m back at it – eyes open. Saturday’s morning sky was the inspiration to start shooting again.
One of the many blessings of traveling for me is being reminded just how much I love my home and all that it gives me. I am happy to be back to the simple and wonderful life we live here in Seattle. After two weeks of sunny skies and warm days in France I’m not even minding the rain – yet!
There is not one big cosmic meaning
for all, there is only the meaning we
each give to our life, an individual
meaning, an individual plot, like
an individual novel, a book
for each person.
Be happy. It’s one way
of being wise.
Each friend represents a world in us,
a world not born until they arrive,
and it is only by this meeting that
a new world is born.
This is my friend Laura who stopped by on her way to Spirit Rock Meditation Center in California. We hadn’t seen each other in a long time – too long – so you can imagine how wonderful it was to spend time with her. She’ll be stopping in again on her return home to Salt Spring Island – we have much more to catch up on. Here’s another quote that seems to fit this photo.
Our perfect companions never
have fewer than four feet.
