from a "click and hope" photographer
Nobody wants to read the small print in dreams."
“I won't date a guy who doesn't own a toolbox.
I'm not saying you need to be able to knock down a wall or build a house or anything like that.
But I've been out with a couple of guys who didn't own toolboxes, and they couldn't even change a light bulb.”
“A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed...It feels an impulsion...this is the place to go now. But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons.”
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.
What is sad for women of my generation is that they weren't supposed to work if they had families.
What were they going to do when the children are grown - watch the raindrops coming down the window pane?”

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
