“Within the mind is a storehouse of memories that entered [my] psyche through the windows of [my] senses. The treaures received through the gift of sight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell…these are what I have come to cherish as yearnings for possessions fade from desire. What I yearn for now is to live a life filled with the creation of memories to visit and revisit again.”
There was a man who was so disturbed by the sight of his own shadow and so displeased with his own footsteps that he determined to get rid of both. The method he hit upon was to run away from them.
So he got up and ran. But every time he put his foot down there was another step, while his shadow kept up with him without the slightest difficulty.
He attributed his failure to the fact that the was not running fast enough. So he ran faster and faster, without stropping, until he finally dropped dead.
He failed to realize that if he merely stepped into the shade, his shadow would vanish, and if he sat down and stayed still, there would be no more footsteps.*

P.A. Moed invites photographers to share images of what it is that inspires them.
I find myself wondering what is…inspiration?
Scott Barry Kaufman (Why Inspiration Matters?) writes that inspiration awakens us to new possibilities by allowing us to transcend our ordinary experiences and limitations. Inspiration propels a person from apathy to possibility, and transforms the way we perceive our own capabilities. Inspiration may sometimes be overlooked because of its elusive nature.
a simple egg?
or an invitation by Mother Nature to be … still.
