from a "click and hope" photographer

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person.
Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.
-Albert Schweitzer-

Albert has a very valid point.
I can think of a few people who have made a significant difference in my life, just by being there when they were needed..

You have a talent for taking photos and for choosing the words to go with them.

Beautiful - makes on lost for words and just content to sit and contemplate your photo and quote.

Simply beautiful Ruth,

Words and picture perfect together.

Thank you

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
