True happiness is... to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca

When what we are is what we want to be, that's happiness.
Malcolm Forbes

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Anais Nin


Don't wait around for other people to be happy for you. Any happiness you get you've got to make yourself.

Lots of great shadows. The shell is beautiful. There are too many linkies. I can't keep up! :)

That conch shell seems to be ablaze, but yet it casts a darksome shadow!

Colorful shadows sparkle in the sunlight streaming through your windows. I love the glow of the sea shell.

the glowing shell takes first prize!

Crafty Green Poet said...

All of them are lovely, but particularly the shell!

Ralph said...

That conch is beautiful! It offers a translucent shadow in a fine pinkish glow...the doggie seems entranced or deep in thought. A studious look at a thinking dog! Love the stemware and vase, the shadowy hues as classic as the glassware itself. As always, a stylish post. Have a great week!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

The almost iridescence [is that the word I mean to use?] LOL ---I'm hot and not thinking well this afternoon]....the nearly see thru conch shell with the pink tinges....beautiful.

Hope you're having a glorious, wonderful weekend so far.

Arija said...

What a beautiful coloured glass collection and Sam looks so content to watch the world.

Have a wonderful summer weekend my dear.

Gemma Wiseman said...

The glowing shell casting a dark sharp shadow is so enchanting! The quietly watchful Sam seems to add serenity to the view and the last glass image is magical and enchanting! Beautiful photos!

Leovi said...

The light through that shell is just amazing, Sylvia!

What lovely captures of light and shadows, especially through the colored glass objects.

The colored glass and the shell look wonderful in this light.

Fantastic shadow shots! I particularly love the warm color emanating from the shell.

I really like that back-lit shell, and the colored shadows are beautiful.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Lovely images Sylvia, I think your home must be a delight of colour on a sunny day. You know how much I adore Anais Nin, her quotes are always exquisite. Have a wonderful weekend, we have everything battened down here in readiness for a storm coming through this afternoon..exciting!

chubskulit said...

I always admire your colorful shadow shots.

Shadow Shots post. Have a great weekend.

blogitse said...

Alice Walker is so right.
We often think happiness 'there'. It's not. It's always in ourselves.
I like your colorful shadows!

Catherine said...

lovely sequence Sylvia - especially that elegant yellow flute

robin. said...

Bagman and Butler said...

Beautiful pictures...always.

Grayquill said...

I think shadows are alot like blogger friends, we can see them but yet not see them. But unlike a shadow we get to see at times the finest of details of their lives....Hmmmm...that is just like your pictures! Maybe that is why i love your posts.
Take care!

Patti said...

Wow, love the sunshine pouring through the conch shell.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

The shadows are just a delight and I particularly love those made by the colored glass. How appropriately chosen from someone who lives in what I call "glass mecca"!

Bises,

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.
