Friday Photo

Today's Friday Photo comes form Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This building was magical somehow - the columns, the lighting and the architecture were stunning. I dubbed it the hall of wisdom, so this quote is quite fitting....

Today's Friday Photo comes from a very famous watering hole on the Serengeti in Tanzania where numerous documentaries are filmed  about the great migration.You can see just about all of Africa's wildlife gather here, from crocodiles to zebras, the hunter and the hunted. It's an amazing stream of animals in desperate need of water, and it's fascinating to see them work together to get what they need to survive. Oh, the lessons they can teach us, if only we are open to learning.......

Today's Friday Photo comes from the middle of a herd of Cape Buffalo in Kenya. The females and babies are very peaceful, but we quickly left when a large male decided we didn't quite fit in. He chased us for quite a distance! This Cape Buffalo came into this world to be who she's meant to be, to do what she's meant to do. She's perfect just the way she is - eat grass with raggedy ears and all.

Today's Friday Photo comes from a rest stop in Tanzania where these guys raided cars with open windows and handily took whatever food they could. They'd also surprise people having a bite to eat in hopes they'd scare them into dropping food, which they'd make off with before you knew what was happening! I just started a virtual book club with some colleagues and we are reading The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown, so you may be seeing quite a few of her quotes for a bit!

Today's Friday photo comes from Chanhassen, MN. This quote is often repeated, but hardly ever heeded. Our nature is to stay with what we know rather than try new things that are uncertain. But this vicious cycle is futile and can lead to frustration. We can learn a lot from squirrels about new ideas and cleverness......

Today's Friday Photo comes from somewhere in the Serengeti of Tanzania, watching this group worry and search for a little one that had wondered off. Having celebrated another year of my life, watching my own little one grow up into what she dreams of, I realize that it's taken me a long time to grow into what I wanted to be. Here's what I know: We all came in with everything we need to be who we are meant to be and do what we are meant to do. We only need to find the courage (that we also came in with) to make it our reality.

Today's Friday Photo comes from Palm Harbor, Florida. I was in a reflective mood when I snapped these weathered dock posts. Today, contemplating the beginning of the last year of my 5th decade, I wonder where the time has gone. These questions become even more important to me.....
