March 12th

Howard Thurman "Don't ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
Howard Thurman
Anna's question for today is :
What makes you come alive? Is it your work, your family, your hobby or just being here?
********
Many things make me come alive.
My family, my friends and my hobbies
However, today I came alive when I picked up my camera.
Just viewing nature through a lens is magical
and
makes me glad to be alive

Photography
Author: Unknown
***
A photograph is more than just
A gift to bring or send
.And more than just the likeness of
A relative or friend.
*
It is a kindly greeting and
A memory to hold.
Of happy times and pleasant things.
However new or old.
*
It is a mirror that reflects
Companionship and cheer.
And now and then the wistfulness
That turns into a tear.
*
A photograph is something to
Adorn a desk or wall.
Or carry in a pocket and
Display to one and all.
*
It is a faithful portrait
The smile that friendship shares
To add its sunshine and to show
That someone really cares.
