Navigate the Fog






"A map says to you, read me carefully,
follow me closely, doubt me not.
I am the earth in the palm of your hand."
Beryl Markham



Not all birds can fly.

True navigation begins in the heart.
It's the most important map of all.
Elizabeth Kapu'uwailani Lindsey


Passed years seem safe ones,
vanquished ones, 
while the future lives in a cloud,
formidable from a distance. 
The cloud clears as you enter it.
I have learned this, but like everyone else,
I learned it late.
Beryl Markham


This quote below, is what plays more often in my life
than I ever dreamed possible.

"You can live a lifetime, and at the end of it
know more about other people
 than you know about yourself."
Beryl Markham




Playing with our camera!



Somewhere along the way
we must learn that there is
 nothing greater than
to do something
for others.
Martin Luther King Jr

and

stop throwing yourself to the wolves
and lead yourself toward worthy directions
Never ever stand on your own dignity. 


Hello from inside a snow cave!


The great use of life is to spend it
 for something that will outlast it.
William James

Like playing.
Especially outside.
If you can add snow
all the better!



Giddy-up!





Care to sit for a spell?



I saved you a seat!



"I'm all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons 
out of the hands of fools.
Let's start with typewriters."
and.....
David Gerrold




The typewriter is indeed my passport into a world otherwise
barred to me and my kind.
Suzanne Rindell

Thank you 
Your visits are very special to me

Some great quotes here, and pictures to match. I love the way you blend them together and put them into context. My favourite quote is "The great use of life is to spend it on something that will outlast it" It's good to look at the furthest horizons we can see, sometimes.

Yeah, but that weather map looks clear to me! Of course, my eyesight is still very poor. Sigh.
