Choice & Fate

A   L   O   H   A  !
" The Fates guide
one who will,
those who won't
they drag. "


" Diplomacy
is the art
of telling plain
truths without
giving offence. "

Winston Churchill

can be taken
from us,
but one thing,
the last of the 
human freedoms -
to choose one's 
in any given
set of circumstances,
to choose
own way."

Viktor Frankl
"Man's Search for Meaning"


Fate or the gods
do not drive us.


We obviously
do not choose
that happens to us.

Life is made up
of some from 
Column "A"
and some from
Column "B"

But that's a
mental game.
Who cares
how many angels
can dance
on the head of
a pin?

will only get you
part of the 
way there-

What matters
is  befriending
 the angels,
or angel
you may.

Each of YOU
plays that role
for me:
what I could not


The web is crowded.
I appreciate 
YOUR visit

i am a fatalist .. i believe it is as it should be .. we follow a path and if we choose the left vs the right leg it was the choice we were meant to make

Indeed true, we are not purely the masters of our own destinies, but we do have something to say about them.

I'm not too diplomatic, friends say. hahahaha

The second shot is fantastic. Love the details.

Teresa said...

So if I leave a comment, does that mean I'm an angel dancing on the pin of your blog? What a wonderful thought! Great pictures today...

I've always loved that Churchill quote - and the idea that everyone has a part to play in this world (even just on this day:)

Diplomacy is a very difficult thing at times... but very necessary. The truth needs to be said.
