“Our intention is to affirm this life, not to bring order out of chaos, nor to suggest improvements in creation, but simply to wake up to the very life we’re living, which is so excellent once one gets one’s mind and desires out of its way and lets it act of its own accord.”
– John Cage

After all the tragic events of late, I find myself appreciating each and every moment I have, no matter how small they may seem.

    I couldn’t agree more…Life is short, nasty things happen but if we look to our small shelter word of family, friends and talents…we can find joy in each day.
    Your photo’s prove that all of the above are possible…just open our eyes…thanks Susan for this gentle reminder of how precious our lives are..

    If we simply ‘get out of the way’ and accept and enjoy what we have been given, life becomes so much easier. Thank you for this wonderful affirmation Susan. When we have days like the last few it’s helpful to keep this in mind; to retreat into ourselves to some extent; to enjoy the place, just where we’ve been planted.

        It’s just a matter of experimenting with different apertures. I play a lot with the tone curves when editing until I get the look I want. No biggie 🙂 I’ll be anxiously awaiting that cannoli now…

    The quote is wonderful – “once one gets one’s mind and desires out of its way and lets it act of its own accord”
    And of course, your images bring comfort in difficult times.

    You are so right Susan to be in the moment . To appreciate life more . So sad we need a wake up call for that. I had mine years ago with some illness and maybe it is the reason I live my life to the fullest. Thanks for your blog that I already enjoy so much !
