There is a cool wall of convex mirrors at Discovery World along the lakefront in Milwaukee. I was there with the family (we have an annual pass, SO worth it). Anyway, the mirror wall. I’d love to set up my camera with a tripod and get a cool HDR pano of the whole thing (I need to ask about that). But I did have my cell phone.
“We share our mutual woes,
Our mutual burdens bear;
And often for each other flows
The sympathizing tear.”
–from “Blest Be the Tie That Binds” by John Fawcett
Day 74 of my 365 photo a day project.
My son at the local playground. As I watched him climb, I couldn’t help but hum the tune: “Spiderman, Spiderman, does whatever a spider can…”
It was quiet. Only the sound of the river below and the occasional call of a cautious bird disturbed the silence. Through the damp, cold, winter fog, the narrow path led up to the top of the hill. In the clearing, sat a small stone circle. Reminiscent of an ancient meeting place, I sat alone, and for a time, felt like the only man on Earth.
“The starting point of discovering who you are, your gifts, your talents, your dreams, is being comfortable with yourself. Spend time alone. Write in a journal. Take long walks in the woods.”
–Robin S. Sharma
“Our moments of inspiration are not lost though we have no particular poem to show for them; for those experiences have left an indelible impression, and we are ever and anon reminded of them.”
–Henry David Thoreau
“In rivers, the water that you touch is the last of what has passed and the first of that which comes; so with present time.”
–Leonardo da Vinci
“The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.”
My advice is to keep hangin’ on when your heart has had enough and give more when you feel like giving up.
