.we are here.

Dear friends, we have made it to the sea.  It has been a bittersweet voyage considering what took place just hours after we left our former home.  What we little belongings we had left in Nashville was destroyed.  All that we have now is what we have brought with us and of course, each other.  My words are a little tangled right now.  I will return soon to share more with you, but until that time. . . I want to share with you a beautiful message that was sent to me by an equally beautiful soul.  Thank you Niru. 

Look to this day
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence.

The bliss of growth,

The glory of action,
The splendour of achievement
Are but experiences of time.

For yesterday is but a dream

And tomorrow is only a vision;
And today well-lived, makes
Yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Look well therefore to this day;

Such is the salutation to the ever-new dawn!

  6. Beautiful note indeed!

    Love the composition and the color.. I think your choice for B&W did wonders to this shot..

    Well done!

  7. A new day dawned in NC - I hope all works out for you. Material things can be replaced -loved ones can't. You have your family and a new start.

    Beautiful image; beautiful message.

  8. My words would be tangled too. Thinking of you prayerfully and hopeful all will be well.

  9. Beautiful poem and photo.
    I am so sorry to hear your left things were ruined. I am hoping they were the least cherished...May the opening of space bring wonderful things to you...
    Wishing you peace Kat.


Just so you know. . . you've already brightened my day!
