Wild Winds Westward

A  L  O  H  A !
" We inherit from our ancestors
 gifts so often taken for granted... 
Each of us contains within... 
this inheritance of soul. 
We are links between 
the ages, containing past
 and present expectations, 
sacred memories 
and future promise. "
Edward Sellner

 “Riches: A dream in the night. 
Fame: A gull floating on water.”
                                               Chinese Proverb

  " You are the gull, Jo, 
strong and wild, fond 
of the storm and
 the wind, flying far 
out to sea, and 
happy all alone. "
               Louisa May Alcott

I think gulls are wildly misunderstood. Without them our beaches would be horrendously messy! I love the sound of them talking wildly together.

Beautiful photos and quotes! I happen to believe in "inherited memory"...that everything that happened to every ancestor we have back to the beginning is tucked inside our brains. That we can't access this information generally, but that it influences our choices and helps make us the person that we are.
