Where the Old Tracks Run

Welcome to a day at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival 2021. I'm posting to

 City Daily Photo I hope you enjoy some unique moments my grand-daughter Karina and I shared together. 

You'll never cross the tracks by standing still.

 "Where the old tracks are lost, new country is revealed with its wonders."

Rabindranath Tagore

From the many town squares of the Minnesota Renaissance Festival

Ask the Wizards anything and linger as you ponder together.

Mirror, mirror in the forest, it's Karina and me!

No memory is ever alone; it's at the end of a trail of memories, a dozen trails that each have their own associations. Louis L'Amour

He's a wise little old Elf!

Today I know that I cannot control the ocean tides. I can only go with the flow. When I struggle and try to organize the Atlantic to my specifications, I sink. If I flail and thrash and growl and grumble, I go under. But if I go and float, I am borne aloft.

We do not succeed in changing things according to our desire,

 but gradually our desire changes. 

Marcel Proust

"A person needs at intervals to separate himself from family and companions and go to new places. He must go without his familiars in order to be open to influence, to change." Katherine Butler Hathaway

Any path is only a path, and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you. Carlos Castaneda

On guard, a bit of direction, from a Royal Guard, if ever a need to protect yourself comes to light!

There is not a single ill-doer who could not be turned to some good.

Jean Jacques Rousseau

No traveler ever reached that blest abode who found not thorns and briers in his road. William Cowper

The only true happiness comes from squandering ourselves for a purpose.

William Cowper

Is that truly a bear on a leash? Yes, yes it is a offering for the King and Queen.

No matter how far you have gone on a wrong road, turn back.

Turkish Proverb

Not every road is worthy.

He is happy whose circumstances suit his temper; but he is more excellent who can suit his temper to any circumstance.

David Hume

Too often I would hear men boast of the miles covered that day, rarely of what they had seen. Louis L'Amour

What have you seen today? Are you traveling in your old tracks or new ones?

Thanks for sharing time with me.

Take good care of you.

I haven't been to a Ren Fest for ages. This looks like loads of fun. It's a perfect early fall event, isn't it? Still nice weather and maybe a little more comfy for the participants!

Jeff said...
