Are you tired?

Sky Watch

Are you tired?

Tired from eye polution?

Feeling frenzied?

Maybe from your daily commute or something worse..


my advice is Stop

Enjoy the sunset

Where ever you are take a deep breath

Take a few moments enjoy the beauty of nature... a sunset

Let your mind rest

or let a sunrise give you a new resolve



hug a loved one






and be refreshed.

Kudos for your creativity! I love how you start with a pile of ugly old tires, take us to a lovely sunset, then to photos of those you love. Just wonderful.

Wow! What else can anybody say?

Well...

Thanks to you and others, I get a big lift out of trying to outdo myself and post things that may surprise some and make others laugh a bit and most of all make lots of people aware of things that might not know much about.

When somebody actually takes the time to write a comment about my work and what I do, that to me is the biggest gift a person can give another. It is a smile on greeting, it is a welcome handshake, and it gives me and my family some hope that the dementia farm is still down the road.

You, yourself, are an inspiration to me. I come back not only to say, "thanks for visiting and leaving a comment" but thanks for taking the time to photograph things of interest and great beauty. Without that, blogging would be about as exciting as a wart on the end of my nose.

So, thanks for stopping at my blog. And rest assured, when you do, I will always try to visit your blog, in return, and leave a comment on your blog. I might not think your photography is ready for the masterpiece award, but it got my attention.

Sincerely,

Abraham Lincoln

Beautiful pictures and well said. Thanks for coming by my blog.

Your post reminded me of my favorite quote: Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Andrea said...

What a precious post. We all need to stop and smell the roses of life. We live in a too rushed and stressful world. We need to all take a deep breath. You know since I took up blogging I have slowed down to notice more of God's beautiful creation.
