The Shadow of Your Hurry

A  L  O  H  A - Means I Welcome the Breath of LIFE You Bring!
The Shadow of Your Smile by Astrud Gilberto on Grooveshark
“ We who are so lucky 
as to be born into 
the light—
who see it every day 
and never think about it, 
we’re blessed. 
We could have been born
shadow souls 
who live and die 
in crimson darkness,” 
                          L. J. Smith

“ Being in a hurry. 
Getting to the next thing 
without fully entering 
the thing in front of me. 
I cannot think 
of a single advantage 
I've ever gained 
from being in a hurry. -

 " - But a thousand broken 
and missed things, 
tens of thousands, 
lie in the wake 
of all the rushing.... 

" -Through all that haste
 I thought 
I was making up
 time. -

"- It turns out
 I was throwing it away. ” 
            Ann Voskamp


Time shared with YOU-

preparing this post,
imagining if it will speak,
then reading YOUR comments

- Are among the BEST
moments in my day.

And our Days
ARE our Life.

Thank YOU, Companion.

                     Fondly, cloudia

in efforts to save time, make up time...we have lost all the more...that last one has the sting of perspective shots with the poster...the boy flipping over

Interesting visuals with the image getting wider screen as you go on to finally show the whole message.

'Making up time' WHAT the heck is that? IMPOSSIBLE!

TexWisGirl said...

you're using that poster well!

I am rather intrigued by the thought of crimson darkness... Does that mean I'm evil?

I like the quote about being in a hurry. It is really true.

The picture of the shadows is so wonderful, as is seeing what really made that strange, alien-looking shadow.

I'm surprised you didn't pull out some quotes from Plato's Republic about shadows flickering on the wall of the cave...

It's a mistake to try to save time. It spoils the enjoyment and preciousness of each moment "saved." Your posts are a joy to read. Cloudia. And, even more, to take away something from them.

Cloudia said...

Plato, yes. Thanks to each of you! 💜

I enjoyed your posting today!

Aloha Cloudia, it does speak a volume many folks need only to tune in to know. It's always about the journey no matter what, especially when you move into the unknown! New places, or just new eyes.

I really enjoy your captures of random people strolling about too.

I do love savouring my time with you.

RedPat said...

I love how you have used the poster!

Grand Crapaud said...

Aloha. Time is to be savored well, not saved.

William Kendall said...

Wonderful use of that banner, Cloudia!

Jenn Jilks said...

Wonderful photos! I had today free. It was hard to manage! I felt guilty.

Cloudia said...

Thanks each of YOU!

It astounds me the amount of money that's spent on time saving technology, when that time AND resource could be used to help the millions around the world who have nothing.. the world is a CRAZY place right now, priorities out the window!
