"The art of living is more like that of wrestling than of dancing; the main thing is to stand firm and be ready for an unseen attack."
I decided to join Shimelle’s Scrap Your Day project in July.
The aim is to scrap the 25th day of each month.
It has been ready on my desk to complete for over a week now,
Maybe today will be the day I finish it!!
Being ready in life is what I do best but getting things completed is another matter.
“We are always getting ready to live, but never living”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Every person in this life has something to teach me -- and as soon as I accept that, I open myself to truly listening.”~ Catherine Doucette; author
Listening to all that goes on around me I like to think I have learnt a lot about life and everything it offers.
“So when you are listening to somebody, completely, attentively, then you are listening not only to the words, but also to the feeling of what is being conveyed, to the whole of it, not part of it.”
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti
"Be a good listener. Your ears will never get you in trouble.”
~ Frank Tyger
It is always good to know when to listen rather than talk.!!!
“Deep listening is miraculous for both listener and speaker. When someone receives us with open-hearted, non-judging, intensely interested listening, our spirits expand.”
~Sue Patton Thoele
Nothing feeds the center of being so much as creative work.
~Anne Morrow Lindbergh
I certainly enjoy my creative work but think that time management to do it is seriously lacking commodity in my life.
So I think from now on I will ignore housework!!!
Here I am playing with mirrors!
Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art. ~Ansel Adams
Some days there won't be a song in your heart. Sing anyway.
My singing voice is not one I share with others often, for that they are grateful.
Singing is a way of escaping. It's another world. I'm no longer on earth.
The world is grand, awfully big and astonishingly beautiful, frequently thrilling.
Being at one with nature is always thrilling, especially if I have my camera in my hand.
"The scientist does not study nature because it is useful; he studies it because he delights in it, and he delights in it because it is beautiful. If nature were not beautiful, it would not be worth knowing, and if nature were not worth knowing, life would not be worth living.”
~ Jules Henri Poincaré
"Remember the feeling as a child when you woke up and morning smiled? It's time you felt like that again." ~Taj Mahal
Just to face a new day through the eyes of a child would be brilliant, you wake up for the day not what might happen tomorrow or what did happen yesterday but full of the anticipation of what will happen today. If only life could be like that everyday!
“Children learn to smile from their parents.”
