Day Six of Seven Days of Black and White
This has been such a fun project! Only one more day to go, but that doesn’t mean I’ll stop blogging. Photography and writing feed my soul.
This particular image was taken when I was with my BFF, Patricia, when we were on one of our adventures, this time in southern CA at Venice Beach. As I look at this, I’m aware once again of the power of the ocean to make me feel humble, peaceful and serene. And the value of friendship.
Don’t you just love looking at a photograph and being instantly transported back to that time and place?
Go to the beach!
Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’
Mother Teresa’s Anyway Poem
People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
Today’s photo is of a magnifying glass that I purchased not long ago. It just spoke to me because of the way it is made, the weight of it in my hand, and the excellent glass that was put into it. It REALLY magnifies. Kind of like how Mother Teresa’s poem can magnify our lives. Namaste’
