Sharing a dream…. Riverdale Artfest

“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.”
-Anatole France 

This weekend I went to support my dear friend in her hobby/past time/creative outlet… to share in part of her dreams.  She loves creating jewelry and making beautiful items. I took pictures, like I usually do, and drew on lookers with my paparazzi shenanigans. You can visit her facebook page if you like any of her work!

Travel: Louis Armstrong Park, New Orleans

“Seems to me it ain’t the world that’s so bad but what we’re doing to it, and all I’m saying is: see what a wonderful world it would be if only we’d give it a chance. Love, baby – love. That’s the secret.”
 ― Louis Armstrong

LouisArmstrong-9

Recently traveled to New Orleans for work. I of course escaped for a little photography break. I loved this statue of Louis Armstrong, it was so innovative, having a different look depending on the angle you looked at it from.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

Up-3

People have to forgive. We don’t have to like them, we don’t have to be friends with them, we don’t have to send them hearts in text messages, but we have to forgive them, to overlook, to forget. Because if we don’t we are tying rocks to our feet, too much for our wings to carry!”
― C. JoyBell C.

I love how Winnie the Pooh can still find ways to teach us, even in adulthood.

Have a wonderful day.

Focus ….

I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest.
I do not judge the universe.
Dalai Lama

Walking at dusk through my neighborhood, probably scaring my poor neighbors with my nosing near all the flowers, brought me to this photo.

I just love this photograph, the flower, the tenderness , the softness of the petals in the light.  Hope you do also.
