I’ve been slacking lately… I haven’t been posting a quote and a photo every day. Not because I have stopped enjoying sifting through the great words of others or because I haven’t been taking pictures, I’ve been taking lots! But, because I’ve been getting busier in my daily life. Amazingly, I’ve been going faster and faster and faster still. That’s just how the cookie crumbles. I plan to return to a better posting cycle shortly.
Would you rather just see one quote or photo post a day? Would you rather see them combined?
Something in human nature causes us to start slacking off at our moment of greatest accomplishment. As you become successful, you will need a great deal of self-discipline not to lose your sense of balance, humility, and commitment. – Ross Perot
Today’s quote really doesn’t need much introduction. I think it really does speak for itself. It’s message is bold and open.
To make bread or love, to dig in the earth, to feed an animal or cook for a stranger — these activities require no extensive commentary, no lucid theology. All they require is someone willing to bend, reach, chop, stir. Most of these tasks are so full of pleasure that there is no need to complicate things by calling them holy. And yet these are the same activities that change lives, sometimes all at once and sometimes more slowly, the way dripping water changes stone. In a world where faith is often construed as a way of thinking, bodily practices remind the willing that faith is a way of life. – Barbara Brown Taylor
Today’s photo is from my Hawaiian trip. A cool shot from the trip home.
I’ve said it before, I love words. Words, when chosen carefully can truly describe what you’re looking for, can move you, can drive others, or can help you get through any situation, with the right words. 🙂
Words are one of our chief means of adjusting to all the situations of life. The better control we have of our words, the more successful our adjustment will be. – Bergen Evans
I really love the perception from this photo. From my walk to work this morning, the view down the street caught my eye.
Today’s quote, by Agnes de Mille, is really a simple statement on what we already know to be true. Sometimes we’re too focused on living our life “the right way” instead of living it. Just something to think about.
Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what next or how. The moment you know how, you begin to die a little. The artist never entirely knows. We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark. – Agnes de Mille
I got stuck in an elevator today at work. I had just left for the day and was on my way out the door. While sitting there, I realized this was pretty cool and thought it was good to use real life for my “art,” so, here’s today’s photo.
