All else is a form of waiting.

The Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting
Life is one big road with lots of signs.
So when you’re riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind.
Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy.
Don’t bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality.
Wake Up and Live!
– Bob Marley
The Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sign Says. Well, I’ve always wondered about this one…

and instantly I perceive a sandy cat
filching a piece of fish in the background.
Look, you have forgotten the cat, I say.
– Virginia Woolf

The Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern
Alles neu, macht der Mai,
Macht die Seele frisch und frei
Laßt das Haus, kommt hinaus,
Windet einen Strauß!
May renews all things,
Refreshes and frees the soul.
Leave the house, come outside,
Bind a bouquet!
– Hermann Adam von Kamp
After several false starts, I hope Spring is here to stay. It has brought another unknown flower…
Break open a cherry tree
and there are no flowers,
but the spring breeze
brings forth myriad blossoms.
– Ikkyu Sojun
Some kind of Rosaceae, but what kind? Cherry? If any one knows, do leave a comment. Else I’ll have to wait for the fruit.
The Weekly Photo Challenge: Up. Once I started snapping it was hard to stop…
The true secret of happiness
lies in taking a genuine interest
in all the details of daily life.
– William Morris
The Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details
belongs to those who believe
in the beauty of their dreams.
– Eleanor Roosevelt

Home is where the heart is.
Outside my window in my parents’ house. The Weekly Photo Challenge: Home.
