Thematic Photographic's -Cousin - Building Anew

"On learning to let go of the past." - Carmi Levy

From his blog, Written Inc. and the home of his legendary Thematic Photographic posts.

Which by the way, we normally post to his Thematic Photographic by now.  But, if I've learned anything in life, it's how "life" seems to get in the middle of, well, life and other things about us, and that sometimes, Carmi's not immune to it either, and he misses giving us the theme call. 

His post certainly swirls about my present moment in this adventure we call, LIFE. 

Carmi opened his post with this quote,

"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new." - Socrates

Sometimes, the obvious, isn't so obvious.

What once was just a tree, is no longer, just another tree in the neighborhood.
Why not give new life, to a special friend?
Carmi's closing quote resonates with me.

"Please forgive me if I'd rather spend my future days striving for something better instead of settling for what once was." Carmi Levy
As his post asked, "Thoughts?" You can go here and leave your thoughts.
