A while back, I took a trip to Seattle. I like taking the train to Seattle and I used to park at my former workplace. A great place to park, but with the downside, you had to walk to the train station. The walk to the train station crosses over one of my favorite Portland bridges: The Steel Bridge, from that vantage point you get to see the Broadway Bridge and off in the distance, the Fremont Bridge. This just happened to be taken in the early hours of the morning. A nice sunrise shot, don’t you think?
Heh. I have a reason for today’s quote. It’s not that I desire to see more people roaming through the world naked as a jaybird, it’s that on this day in history, it’s told that Lady Godiva rode naked, on horse, through Coventry, England. 🙂
By walking naked you gain far more than coolness. You feel an unexpected sense of freedom from restraint. An uplifting and almost delirious sense of simplicity. In this new simplicity you soon find that you have become, in a new and surer sense, and integral part of the simple, complex world you are walking through. And then you are really walking. – Colin Fletcher
Looking for a quote today, I found myself going in circles. Nothing I could find seemed to express what I was thinking until I ran across this quote by Stewart White. If you are unsure of yourself, you may not give it your all. If someone else isn’t sure of you, you may not give a damn. Remember to be sure-footed, strong and able, the rest will follow.
Have a wonderful day today!
Do not attempt to do a thing unless you are sure of yourself; but do not relinquish it simply because someone else is not sure of you. – Stewart E. White
I disconnected from the world yesterday. I got some great rest, watched some good TV and basically did nothing of significance. Sometimes, that’s exactly what you need. Today’s quote reflects the needs to get back to the real world.
From here on out, there’s just reality. I think that’s what maturity is: a stoic response to endless reality. But then, what do I know? – Carrie Fisher
