“You can either be a victim of the world or an adventurer in search of treasure. It all depends on how you view your life.”
~ Paulo Coelho

Have a wonderful adventure-filled weekend, friends.

“To know is nothing at all; to imagine is everything.”

autumn winds

autumn breeze

And every year there is a brief, startling moment
When we pause in the middle of a long walk home and
Suddenly feel something invisible and weightless
Touching our shoulders, sweeping down from the air:
It is the autumn wind pressing against our bodies;
It is the changing light of fall falling on us.
– Edward Hirsch

goodnight fence

Once there was a way to get back homeward
Once there was a way to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby

Golden slumbers fill your eyes
Smiles awake you when you rise

~ Lennon/McCartney

I love getting back to our usual golden hour walks now

 “Maybe learning how to be out in the big world isn’t the epic journey everyone thinks it is. Maybe that’s actually the easy part. The hard part is what’s right in front of you. The hard part is learning how to hold the title to your very existence, to own not only property, but also your life.”

~ Meghan Daum

wishing you all a peaceful journey into the new year.
