A New Past

A  L  O  H  A !

" Everyone you meet 
is your mirror.” 
        Ken Keyes, Jr

" The world is
 a looking glass 
and gives back to everyone
 the reflection of 
his own face. "
                   William Makepeace Thackeray

" Imagination is everything. 
It is the preview of
 life's coming attractions. "
                                  Albert Einstein 


What Your legend?

What is Your Story
about Yourself
 the one
making sense 
of You?
[ to Yourself ]

What is Your legend?
What is Your past?

of the party,
or lonely

Looking back
the things we 
thought we knew
are seen afresh
from a different view.

What have YOU learned
that's new?

Thanks for relaxing
here awhile-
Makes me smile!

I was born, I lived a good a life as I could, I will die. the winds of time will erase my footprints from the sands of time.

That is all there is to report.

Your pictures and writing has spread a lot of joy. May your day be joyful in turn, Cloudia.

I try to do more than merely survive, but savor the day and what it brings. Love.

The past is always clouded or clarified by who we are today. I like your poem. Have a good weekend.

Really cool pictures today! I like the little girl in the stroller best. The quotes today are interesting, too. They made me think.

Sometimes I'm afraid to inquire too deeply into my own "legend."

Yes! It's like her secret life is being revealed.

Elephant's Child said...

I was born, I am here, and I will die. And it is all fine.
Love that Einstein, that hard-edged man of science, revelled in imagination.

I love your top photo – the colors in the sky have just beautiful hues.
I have learned this week that taking care of 3 grand children aged 3, 5 and 7 while their parents are away, takes a lot out of you when you are a senior …

Einstein's quote in particular leaves room for thought. I love that top shot.
