Friday Photo

Today's Friday Photo comes from Tampa, Florida. I shot this picture on a recent visit's early morning walk. The Tampa area was my home for more than 50 years. This old Spanish moss filled oak (iconic of Florida) seemed to whisper this quote like it was reading my mind. The past IS past, and we are always changing, moving forward. There is no real way to 'go back'....

Today's Friday Photo comes from Oahu, Hawaii. How many times do you hear people say, "When this happens....I will be able to....." The fact is that life may send 'rain'. Rather than waiting for the adversity to go away, we can find the silver lining in those dark clouds and choose for ourselves how we will react to it.

Today's Friday Photo comes from an archipelago in Sweden at the darkest hour of the night - about 3 in the morning! Two weeks of basically all sunlight and long hours of class, left me feeling pretty tired. I was the last few exhausting days of study that this quote became very meaningful to me!

Today's Friday Photo comes from Capitol Reef National Park in Utah. I've always thought that this park's name was better suited for a barrier reef somewhere! Recently I talked about the power of connection on my radio show, Minding Your Health. We naturally gravitate toward those who are like us.

Today's Friday Photo comes from Yosemite, California. The challenges in life typically aren't about the 'thing' itself, but what is inside of us - the feelings, the negative or limiting thoughts. To solve the problems on the outside we have to go within, and when we do, we are better for it!

Today's Friday Photo comes from Villa D'Este in Italy, just north of Rome. This 16th century villa's gardens reminds me of how we sometimes wish our life, and ourselves, to be - laid out in perfect order, perfectly groomed. Oh to dream!

Today's Friday Photo comes from the Amalfi Coast on the twisting drive to Ravello. Though life holds a lot of twists and turns, energy in all forms is a loop - as it is between the giver and the receiver. I just love this quote. Win, win, win for all! -

Today's Friday Photo comes from Alcatraz Island in San Francisco. This quote is a perfect fit for this weathered building, showing wear from age and harsh weather conditions. As our years pass, what mark are we leaving on this world?

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.......
