Moments in time

“Nirvana is this moment seen directly. There is no where else than here. The only gate is now. The only doorway is your own body and mind. There’s nowhere to go. There’s nothing else to be. There’s no destination. It’s not something to aim for in the afterlife. It’s simply the quality of this moment.”

  1. thanks for visiting my blog and for the follow.. I looked at some of your photos, and they each capture a mood or a moment.. I look forward to your new posts.

  2. Hey there!
    Glad you found me so I could find you! I’m Susan too and from Eastern Mass. I love gardening and taking pictures as well…You MUST have been to Tower Hill…one of my favorite places!

  3. Welcome! Thank you for subscribing to follow my blog. I hope you are encouraged, inspired and enjoy the photos I take of life’s events as seen through the lens of my camera.

  4. You are a mom, a teacher, a gardener, a reader, an arts advocate, sometimes a cook and a dabbler in photography. Please tell me how you do all of that 🙂 I am really impress 😉

    By the way, I love your photographs they are full of emotions. In the top of you blog you have this 2 questions which caught my attention “where are you going? where have you been?

    These two questions reflect perfectly the meaning of photographs.
    The notion of time passing because people who take photographs are always concerned unconsciously or consciously with the idea of preserving the past (“where have you been?”) towards an unpredictable future. (“where are you going?”) Photographs are for me fragments of past moments. they are testaments of the past towards eternity.

    Great photographs 🙂 Love It 😉

    1. I have since retired from teaching so I have a lot of free time now to explore some of the other loves in my life! And a lot of time, at this point in my life, to try to figure out where life will lead me next – thus the questions written here.
      Yes, I agree that photos are fragments of the past and I love the thought that they are also a testament of the past towards eternity. I also think, as far as art therapy goes, that photography (and other arts) remind us that there is still beauty in this world, during difficult times in our own little lives. It’s pretty amazing how much the arts can teach us to look at things differently and how much they can teach us about ourselves!

      So nice to “meet” you and I look forward to more of your posts!

  5. Thank you for visiting my blog today. I appreciate the time you took to stop by. May your day be filled with joy and peace.

  6. I have nominated you for an Awesomeness award. The badge can be found on my post dated 4/20/13.

    I realize these awards take time to respond to so do not feel you have to comply with the requirements.

    1. List your top ten favorite blogs and notify them.

    2. List 10 things we do not know about yourself.

    1. Thank you so much Liz, while I’m very honored and happy that you thought of me, I don’t accept awards. It’s an honor just to have people like you visit here! That’s my award!

    1. Thank you so very much! You are too nice! Unfortunately, I really don’t accept awards…mainly because I always feel guilty that I don’t have the time to fullfill the rules and all. But I thank you so much for thinking of me, it really means alot!

      1. What you choose to do or not do with the award is up to you…I just felt you needed to be recognized, and if it increases traffic to your blog, bonus!

    1. Yes, since retired. I taught in special ed programs and eventually taught preschool and pre-K classes while my own children were growing up. How awesome to be an art teacher! What grades do you teach?

      1. No,no…not that I know of! For some reason I’ve always just made my smiles backwards…must have some deep psychological meaning…

      2. Maybe you are making a statement that you can’t and won’t be mold like others. An against the grainer like me.

  7. I’ve nominated you for the THE LOYAL READER AND WONDERFUL TEAM MEMBERSHIP AWARDS!!! thank you for your continued support of my blog. It’s greatly appreciated. Check out my blog to claim your badges.

    1. Haha! I love your introduction! So nice to meet you Lisa! Thanks for your nice comments…will be dropping by your place often! I see that you are a theater teacher, how wonderful! My oldest son was heavily into acting and improv back in his high school days…he still is quite dramatic! Will be in touch!
