Friday Photo

Today's Friday Photo shows the rich Fall colors from Anchorage, Alaska. This lake is the site of a very busy sea plane 'field', with planes frequently taking off and landing. It made me contemplate about how many times we've been told that our emotions can't take flight. If we are too happy or exuberant, we are flighty (pun intended) or if we are too angry or sad, no one wants to be around us. The fact is that emotion is meant to be expressed and it is a sign of how much we are in or out of alignment to who we are. It's when we hold those emotions in that trouble can really begin.

Today's Friday Photo comes from the shores of Tahiti in the French Polynesia. This quote and glorious picture seem very appropriate for us to keep in mind in the midst of all the chaos in the world these past couple of months. I don't know who said this, but he/she is a very wise person!

Today's Friday Photo is of Coit Tower, San Fransisco, CA.  After an amazing week of transformation with clients, I was thinking that this quote sums up how I view everyone that walks in my door. The beauty is always within and somehow, if the client is willing, they find their way to get to the glow!

Today's Friday Photo comes from Hopkins, MN. It's that time of the year when the geese are gathering in large groups to think about heading south for the winter. I guess their belief was that the cars would stop, and they certainly acted as if it were true, taking their sweet time crossing the road, stopping the traffic that had the green light! What beliefs do you hold such convictions in that are keeping you stuck?

Today's Friday Photo comes from the South Shore of Kauai in Hawaii. These lava blow holes are interesting features on many shorelines, some as big and as powerful as Old Faithful.  I wonder one's reaction to be standing near, unaware, and be surprised by the sudden burst of noise and wet. Confusion, fear, nervous laughter, joy - a range of varying emotions until your logical mind figured out what was happening. So, like the jumble of thoughts and explosion of the water, I thought I'd pair the picture with this quote to 'blow' your mind.... An idea to contemplate over your weekend!

Today's Friday Photo comes from a harbor in San Francisco, CA. Four days of haze and 109 + degrees in my favorite city couldn't keep me from enjoying this peaceful scene over the Labor Day weekend. And I so found this quote to be true - focusing on the heat certainly brought it more into focus. Focusing on the fun and downtime with my daughter made things absolutely the best! Isn't it true for everything in life......

Today's Friday Photo comes from amid a large gathering of Cape Buffalo in Lewa Downs, Kenya. Had there been males present, we would not have been able to sit among them.(Having already been chased by one, we had learned this lesson well!) This little one, in all of the innocence and confidence that little ones in animal and human forms possess, was so curious about us. This quote is SO very appropriate....

Today's Friday Photo comes from Venice, Italy. I love Venice - even if the waters are rising and the city is sinking! It's old architecture and beautiful narrow streets and bridges feel like you are in a different world, separated from the mainstream. Life revolves around the water - whether you are on the water in a boat (gondola, taxi, ambulance, garbage 'truck') or in the (at times) flooded cathedral.
