Days End

A L O H A !





“ The curfew tolls the knell of parting day,

The lowing herd winds slowly o'er the lea,

The ploughman homeward plods his weary way,

And leaves the world to darkness and to me.”

 

 Thomas Gray 
 


" Wherever you go,
go with all your heart. "
 
Confucius











" A faithful friend is a strong defense;
And he that hath found him 
hath found a treasure.  "

Louisa May Alcott

 In this life
it is well
to be on good terms
with melancholy-
But marry
contentment.


Enjoy the contentment on offer
in these Autumn days.

Thank YOU for sharing it here!

Melancholy is a pretty cool emotion, though. I've had lots of experience.

We've just come home on a dark and wet night. Michael Buble's "Home" is just perfect, as is the picture of the dog on the boat. Our Misty is just happy to have us back - she's not so keen on being in charge.

Beautiful photos that goes along we the powerful quotes. Nice combination.

I will never get to experience autumn because we don't have it here....just the arid and hot summer and cool "winter"...no snowflakes, just occasional hails.

Warm aloha from Al Ain!

I love that quote about going with all your heart. So often we go somewhere and miss where we were originally (including going into the future and always looking back on the past). There is so much beauty and joy to be had in the here and now.
