More than words

DSC_0033 copy 2

A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.

~ Diane Arbus

The great thing about getting older is that you don't lose all the other ages you've been.

~ Madeleine L’Engle

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward.

~ Amelia Earhart

I love the second photo in particular - those beautiful coiled shapes! Love the quotes too. 'The most difficult thing is the decision to act' - how true!

Hilary said...

Beautiful ...I especially like the one about keeping all the other ages you have been.
Is that why I feel like I am 12 some days???

Mary said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

They are exquisite.

I wanted to name my daughter Amelia after Earhart but I had to compromise, so Maria was the result. Love Maria but still am drawn to Amelia....

Gorgeous, gorgeous pictures.

ah....
my favorite flower smell is Cosmos. They smell like sweet clean babies.

My favorite flower is chicory. I love their wild soft blue, glorifying the roadways and ditches, impossible to bouquet, blooming only in the morning, a cloud of blue beauty.

Thank you for the cosmos! I'll hope for chicory!

It is very hard to act you think and think and then do nothing. Well a couple of months ago I decided to act. I signed up for a strenth training class and have lost 35 lbs,brought my A1c down to 5.9 and to night from 6-9 I am going on a three hour cruise on a sailing ship called Zodiac.
I love George.
