You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.
(star fish / Perdido Key / Julie Cook / 2015)
Despite the fact that you always think you know where you’re going. . .chances are, life will intervene—-
Thought for the day. . .always watch your step. . .
The diversity of the phenomena of nature is so great, and the treasures hidden in the heavens so rich, precisely in order that the human mind shall never be lacking in fresh nourishment.
(hidden little green shield bug nestled among the baby meyer lemons / Julie Cook / 2014)
Go forth with eyes wide open.
With a mind clear and wanting,
Expecting nothing less than fascinating.
With a heart deep and cavernous,
Anticipate the extraordinary.
Step lightly, yet determined
Breathe in deeply
hidden treasures are waiting. . .
