Six Word Saturday - 16 November 2013

This best describes my days-
for Cate's Six Word Saturday.

"It's kind of bittersweet.
The human spirit is not measured by the size
of the act,
but by the size of the heart."
Yakov Smirnoff
No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the


to an

 (uncharted land)
or opened a new

for the human spirit.
quote is by
Helen Keller

Enjoy your weekend friends!

Awesome post! Loved the quote and the beautiful pictures! And yes...I think we are all about to start our "busy season" with Thanksgiving and then Christmas, and New Years coming up!

Happy Saturday!

You did really good here, Karen. I was able to read Ms. Keller's saying almost word for word though your words and pictures.

Oh yes, the little road in my picture would only be 65-75 if not in town for MUCH slower speeds. 85 and right lane for passing is for freeways.

Wouldn't like to be on that sail ship.

Onto the carousel and spinning round till you fall off, Karen :)
Yes, I know the feeling. Nice to make it fun, though.

Great quote with perfect pictures!

Ha! I showed up here!! And yes, I know it's the "busy" season, but Rod has forbidden me to cook a Thanksgiving dinner because it leaves me in bed for days afterward. Fortunately, we have been invited out, and even more fortunately, we have no family coming until after Christmas, except for Keil, who will sweep in, make all the repairs we need made, fix the computers, and my phone, and smile the entire time.

Nice blend of photos with the quote. I especially like the sailing one.

What an amazing woman Helen Keller was, I haven't heard about her for a year or so so I am glad to see the quote.

Suzy said...

Loved both the quotes. Happy Birthday to your daughter. Have a truly awesome weekend and week.
