Because of Tough

A L O H A !
 Red Sky

" If you've been up
 all night 
and cried 
till you have
 no more tears
 left in you - 
you will know
 that there comes
 in the end
 a sort of quietness. 
 You feel as if 
nothing is ever
 going to happen
 again. ”

 C.S. Lewis,

 Red Stripe

" Brave men are all vertebrates;
 they have their softness
 on the surface
 and their 
 in the middle. "

Lewis Carrol

Red Leaf

“ Tears
 are words
 that need 
to be written. ”

Paulo Coelho

Red Soup

“ When you've suffered
 a great deal in life, 
each additional pain 
is both 
 and trifling. ” 

Yann Martel

Ready  for  Sleep

" Life 
is a process
 of becoming,
 a combination
 of states 
we have to go through.
Where people fail
 is that they wish 
to elect a state 
and remain in it.
This is a kind of death. "

Anais Nin

WOW! The moon and rainbow shots are fabulous! Yes, the tough times do make us stronger and appreciate when times are good!

All pain is trifling, nothing to cry about. It is a shower without water..

Nothing like a good cry. It releases something from inside. I feel sorry for those who can't cry. Sure feels better in the morning, when the sun's up.

Travis Erwin said...

As always, I enjoyed your photos and words of wisdom. My apologies for being a crappy blog friend, but I'm trying to get back in the groove.

I love the rainbow picture. I guess all tough times have much to teach us. I wouldn't want to relive them though. And I know they created ME, the one who now has a pretty easy life. I'm so grateful.

Teresa said...

What a profound post! Great quotes and wonderful pictures.

Daryl said...

lovely images ... introspective words


I've never heard that Anais Nin quote, but I love it. Tough times can be so difficult, but I think they've also made me what I am and, yes, stronger (I hope:). Lovely rainbow, lovely images.

Tammie Lee said...

such beautiful images
and words of life

Special such an almost vertical rainbow.


Hattie said...

I wish I could get a rainbow shot like that.

I view my tears as toxins - which need to be expelled.
My mother used to threaten to cry a puddle and drown people in it - but I have never come close.
Wonderful, wonderful, heart-warming photos. Thank you.

So, now you have evidence that the rainbows dive into the ocean to make the dolphies happy.
Hey, I wanted to be a wimp; darn it, I didn't ASK to become stronger. The processor still squeezed me through, so I'm okay now, just a few dents. Aloha helps owies. DrumMajor
