I spent Saturday wandering about several of towns not too far from me. I'm sharing some of the photos I took in Red Wing, Minnesota.
My wandering is always about "comfort for the soul" renewing oneself, as we all know our day-to-day world is full of pressures, commitments, responsibilities and whatnot but we can't let those things squeeze our self-compassion. We must be kind to ourselves. I'm posting to City Daily Photo.

The past is a place of reference
not a place of residence.

It's so much fun coming upon random happenings like this in my photo below.
Use this day to do something daring, extraordinary and unlike yourself. Take a chance and shape a different pattern in your personal cloud of probability. Vera Nazarian

there is much to be thankful for

I hope you always find a reason to smile.
Thanks for stopping in. Your comments brighten my day.
Enjoy your day.
