Wordless Wednesday



Those who dwell among the beauties
and mysteries of the earth
are never alone or weary of life.

Rachel Carson


What do you think?

i really like this. my first thought was that who ever is sitting here are friends! what a joy to spend time with someone you like to be with!

RNSANE said...

I think that saying is absolutely right.

Dave King said...

Absolutely. Very apt.

Brian Miller said...

i agree...love teh pic and hope that as we grow more vintage we find a bench just like that...there is so much to see and explore that we miss each day...

What a great picture : an innovative and different view of life.

We're glad to see your back!

(I'm sorry. The devil made me do it!)

But seriously:
...and since our bodies are a part OF the earth?

Elisabeth said...

I couldn't agree more.

How is it you have a great uncle the back of whose head looks relatively youthful?

Scott said...

this reminds me to remain grounded and stay close to God :-)

I think you are absolutely right.

There is something instantly renewing, for me, to be in the woods. It's a strange thing, but it always works.

Love the photo/the moment shared.

If I am communing with nature and enjoying the good things of nature I know absolutely I am not alone. If there is not another human being around I am still not alone. I am part of something so strong and awesome that I know the presence deep down in my soul.

I love families. Beautiful photo and wise words.

If we have curiosity about life and all that it offers--its beauty and its mystery--then it would be impossible to be weary with it. The photo is great!

Sam Liu said...

So true, so infinitely poignant. I love this.

Dianne said...

an artist once told me that mystery is a distraction from the creation of art, I think he was quoting someone, but I bet he'd say the same about beauty... and money....

are artists lonely because of this?
