Lots of sunshine today made it look a lot warmer outside than it was ~ the snow kind of ruins the illusion of warmth, anyway!
As I was admiring the view, I noticed the shadows on the wall from the sun shining on the plants by the window and saw something wonderfully unforseen in those spots on the wall:
Do you think this is what Friedrich Nietzsche meant when he said “Love is not consolation. It is light.”??
Yeah, probably not.
Regardless, it’s a great reminder that love is everywhere ~ whether you’re actually looking for it or not!
Well, I had something completely different planned for today’s blog, but felt that I didn’t want to let the day go without acknowledging the passing of Nelson Mandela.
I’ll leave the facts and statistics of his life to the people who want to report that.
I merely want to pay my respects.
I can see no better way to do that then to share some of his quotes.
And, as you know, I certainly prefer to share my own photographs and/or posters, but these 3 that I found online seemed perfect to share.
Rest in Peace, Nelson Mandela.
You lived your passion by playing large and truly forged a more gentle, loving, and peaceful world.
