from a "click and hope" photographer


“Fortunate indeed, is the man who takes exactly the right measure of himself,
and holds a just balance between what he can acquire and what he can use.”
~Peter Mere Latham~

A great person would know the balance Ruth. As ever a thought provoking saying for the day!

Love both! I wonder if you picked the quote for the photo or if you made the photo for the quote.

My grandaughter loves to do this too. We must hope they balance their adult lives as carefully..

What a lovely photo Ruth and great quote

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
