Picture of a Picture

While away the time
keep your eye
 on the game.

Carmi has called for
Picture of a Picture
as our theme this week for


"However impenetrable it seems,
if you don't try it
then you can never do it."
Andrew Wiles

"Do not judge my story by
 the chapter you walked in on."

"Put blinders on to those things that conspire to hold you back,
 especially the ones in your own head."
Meryl Streep

"It takes courage to grow up 
and become who you really are."

"So what Mr. Octopus, if you have four pairs of arms,
 All the more to hug with!"

"History, like love, is so apt to surround her heroes 
with an atmosphere of
imaginary brightness."
James Fenimore Cooper

Thank you for stopping in to say hello
take good care of you!

A delightful series of pictures within pictures Karen, I especially love the second shot, reminded me of my granddaughter at her dance class ☺ I must admit the thought of placing the Aztec warrior in my front garden did make me smile at the reaction it would get from neighbours and folk walking by with their dogs 😀

Always wonderful here at your place. I love it. The e. e. cummings quote is a simple truth. It does take courage to be yourself. The older I get the more I am comfortable with that truth and myself.
I am glad you enjoyed Neil Young today. We are devotees of his music. I love his lyrics, melodies and his intensity. Bill plays many of his songs. Hugs!
