a secret place

“It is such a secret place, the land of tears. …One runs the risk of weeping a little, if one lets himself be tamed. …And when your sorrow is comforted (time soothes all sorrows) you will be content that you have known me.”

Antoine de Saint-Exuprey, The Little Prince

thursday’s special: pick a word

Together with my Roget’s International Thesaurus, I selected these following images for September’s “pick a word” challenge…

can a journal be populated with words?  can words inhabit a journal?

nature, by her very nature is time sensitive

clandestine…walking through an alleyway wondering what is hidden behind those locked gates

Hopefully I will be forgiven for only including one color image for this Lost in Translation’s photo challenge.

reflections

…instead of a coherent personality that stretches back in an unbroken line to a first memory and looks forward to an indefinite future, we discover a self ridden with gaps and ambiguities.  Who “I am” appears coherent only because of the monologue we keep repeating, editing, censoring, and embellishing in our heads.
