Evening, Wisdom and Beauty



Those who can laugh without cause have either found the true meaning of happiness or have gone stark raving mad. ~Norm Papernick



What a wonderful life I've had! I only wish I'd realized it sooner. ~Colette



People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds, it is something one creates. ~Thomas Szasz,



You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover is yourself. ~Alan Alda



Never mind searching for who you are. Search for the person you aspire to be. ~Robert Brault,



If only we'd stop trying to be happy we could have a pretty good time. ~Edith Wharton




Late winter
of life,
Cloudy brain
plaques
fogging the brain;
I stand tall
and green
in the mist
In support
of those with
lost leaves....

Sometimes
I am alone,
sometimes
struggling with
others
on a woody slope
alzeimerishly....

A gust of wind
lifts the mist,
warm yellows
and browns of fall
decorating
the heights
of my mind....

And
the fence and lawn
resplendent
in shining dew,
appears familiar....

Memories flood back;
I am not alone.....

Oops, sorry, typo error: I meant, You have "eyes" for beauty.

Sylvia: You always provide such wonderful words and images with which to close a day. You must have a record (here in your blog) of all your favourite quotations. Wonderful - and thanks for sharing.

Great sky! And that mountain scene is spectacular! Did you have to hike a strenious hike to get that view?

Thom said...

Thank you for stopping by my playground. I appreciate it. I love these photos :) Well done :)

Quilt Works, no that is the Going to the Sun Highway in Glacier National Park and it is a gorgeous drive. There are places to hike and climb, of course, but this is just a very famous road through the middle of the park!

Natural Moments said...

When one laughs unconditionally, they are vibrating in alignment to the higher self. One can hear one's personal chord being struck, and one laughs because they recongnize it as their truth. Truth can be funny when one recognizes themselves and remembers what they are. Its funny because of the fact that they forgot. Its a duh moment.

That last photo with brush stroke like lines reminds me almost of an abstract painting.

Serline said...

I'm stealing the first two. What wonderful words.

Deborah Godin said...

Always wonderful photos, but that last one of the mountainside is just breath-taking! And... nice quote from AA; what a nice surprise (not that I thought he wasn't deep!)

Alyssa Ast said...

I sometimes laugh on my own without a reason. I haven´t really figured out yet which one it fits from these options.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
