Quote of the Day – Barbara Jordan on Today

I love this quote, it really personalizes living in the moment, living day by day. You have to take life one day at a time. It’s worth it. I live a day at a time. Each day I look for a kernel of excitement. In the morning I say: What is my exciting thing for…

Quote of the Day – Jean-Paul Sartre on Hell

I’ve always been interested in the words of Jean-Paul Sartre, there’s something about this snippets of his best that draws me back. This one just makes me giggle. Sometimes, I truly believe that Hell is being around other people. 🙂 So that is what hell is. I would never have believed it. You remember: the…

Quote of the Day – Robert Schuller on Believing in Yourself

This is my 600th quote/photo of the day post. Who would have thought that this would have proven to be a fun as it has been. Things I’ve learned? I’ve become a little bit better photographer, no longer do I “luck into” as many photos, I actually see them as they should be. It’s been…

Quote of the Day – George Burns on Happiness

Today’s a good day for a little levity. George Burns was an icon for my entire youth, passing away in 1996, he was smart, funny and the personification of snarky. So, how much happiness do you want? 🙂 Happiness? A good martini, a good meal, a good cigar and a good woman. Or a bad…

Quote of the Day – Bette Davis on Expectation

Expectations are a funny thing. We all have expectations in life, of those we adore, of those we hate and of those we exist with. Those expectations are what they are and you cannot expect someone else to change, you can only expect to change your expectations. You will never be happier than you expect….

Quote of the Day – Thomas Merton on Faith

Today’s quote is a good reminder for us all. Sometimes you just have to believe you’re taking the right steps, going in the right direction and making all the right decisions. I remember the words from The West Wing if ever I need a boost in the right way, “Act as if ye have faith…

Quote of the Day – Joseph Campbell on Bliss

Sometimes you have to make decisions for you and how you’ll feel at the end of the day, not how you feel in the moment. I love decisions, they’re either things that will keep you safe or push you outside your limits. Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there…

Photo of the Day – Joan of Arc

Today’s photo comes from inside Northeast Portland. This park, which is in a roundabout in NE Portland, on Glisan and 39th avenue. Recently some vandals gave Joan a crown and her horse a unicorn horn. That act of mythological defiance took 3 days to repair. I wish people would leave things alone! Still, I dedicate…

Photo of the Day – Purple Night

This photo was taken at the Four Seasons Lodge at Koele, at night, in Lanai City, Lanai, Hawaii. While we were there, someone was getting married and they had the grounds all lit up for different events. I think this is where the guest book was..
