Friday Photo

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.

Today's Friday photo comes from a trail in Tettegouche State Park on the north shore of Lake Superior, were the water's foam pooled in such a cool pattern. This quote is for me, as I get ready to make a significant presentation to a potential client next week and to teach two courses at the National Guild of Hypnotists convention next weekend. For me it's not about fear, but always seeking the treasure and keeping my energy positive and high. Yet if allowed, fear can easily overcome. I'm not talking about the fear that keeps us safe, I'm talking about the fear that keeps us stuck. Face it, and you'll be amazed at the wealth of treasure you'll find waiting.....

Today's Friday Photo comes from an early morning walk near a cypress swamp in Florida during a recent visit. As I walked, I recalled many memories from 55 years of living here. And this quote took on a different meaning. As we age, as we re-tell stories, our recollection and perception of them changes slightly each time, and that new version becomes our reality of the event. What we think and what we tell ourselves is vital to our wellbeing. Our thoughts are the mirror to our life. Do you like what you see?
