Magic Gate

A  L  O  H   A !
 Silver Bells by The Andrews Sisters on Grooveshark
" Pessimism 
leads to weakness,
to power. "
                William James

" You don't become 
enormously successful 
without encountering and 
overcoming a number 
of extremely challenging 
problems. "
                 Mark Victor Hansen

" Nothing real 
stands between you
 and your happiness,
only illusion 
and confusion. "
                 Robert Holden

Linking to

" Do you not see 
how necessary
 a world of pains
 and troubles is
 to school 
an intelligence
 and make it 
a soul?” 

Thank You!
              Fondly, cloudia

A wise quote by Mr. James. That last shot is incredible!

Ida said...

I love the view in that first shot. That is a lovely flower too.
Odd to see the doors standing up against the fence, perhaps they were waiting to be painted.
Gorgeous sky in the last shot.
