Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

I can’t conceive of cooking in a sunny place like Florida

because my motivation comes from the changing seasons.

That’s why I decided to live in New York.

Autumn leaves

You must take personal responsibility.

You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind,

but you can change yourself.

That is something you have charge of.

Jim Rohn


Golden trees

To be interested in the changing seasons

is a happier state of mind

than to be hopelessly in love with spring.

George Santayana


Summer at the river

When the seasons shift,

even the subtle beginning,

the scent of a promised change,

feel something stir inside me.

Hopefulness? Gratitude? Openness?

Whatever it is, it’s welcome.

Kristin Armstrong


Filtered sunlight

For me it was sort of career suicide to work in color,

but I did it because I perceived myself

from an early stage

to be interested in seasonality –

the changing of the seasons –

that’s what I deeply loved.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin’

We escaped some of the South African winter when we holidayed in Thailand earlier this month. July on Koh Samui is hot!

These photos are of my granddaughter, Emma and her mom, Janda, enjoying some summer lovin’.
