WPC – Change

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
― Lao Tzu


“The more things change, the more they stay the same.” – Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr

  1. Those are beautiful photos, Eliza. Well, the subject matter, that is. :\

    Absolutely stunning.

    And I think I see me some 70’s fashion. 🙂

    Yup, I’m still around. I haven’t evaporated entirely.

      Good to hear from you Michael. I have wondered about you from time to time! Thanks for your kind comments– timing is mid-60s, late 70s, mid-90s and present day. Glad you stopped by. Don’t be a stranger. 🙂

  2. Gillian says:

    I agree with Michael. I could tell you were a beautiful person by the way you write and now your photos confirm that you are and have always been gorgeous.

  3. You’ll always be a beautiful soul Eliza. For myself I have found multiple advantages in being born homely. For one, the older i get the more people catch up with me!

    Beautiful then and beautiful now.

  7. Val Boyko says:

    Hello you! Beautiful 😊

  8. arlingwoman says:

    Gorgeous you! At all ages. Great response to the challenge.

  9. I absolutely love this, Eliza. 🙂 As we age, the people around us look and treat us like we’ve been old our entire life when in fact we’ve had many different chapters. I’ve joked a couple of times, seniors should sometimes wear sandwich boards around our necks with younger photos and a resume – people would be shocked at the lives we’ve lead. Love your photos and this post made my day. 🙂

  10. Robin says:

    Beautiful Eliza, at every age! 🙂

  11. Treah says:

    I am privileged to have known every one of these forms of you (& even younger!). Nice idea to put them all on one page.

  12. When we do not resist change, beauty is always within and around us. Such gorgeous photos Eliza, you are beautiful. 🙂

  13. Bettie says:

    Liz – beautiful at all ages and stages! Such a treat to know you and enjoy your light!

  14. Loved this post Eliza. I love the lesson that we are good enough as is.

    What a lovely series. Your friendly kind smile invites one in.

  18. MK says:

    Charming, and sweet, and lovely, and strong. Now I’m not sure which of these happens to caption which photo? Actually, any combination will do. Thanks so much for sharing these with us, Eliza.

  34. srickman2014 says:

    Ahh….Time has such a wonderful way of growing beauty!

  35. I can see the little girl in your smile Eliza… soooo beautiful.

  36. Joanne says:

    You were, and still are, so beautiful, Eliza! And your facial beauty travels right through to your soul. Changes in our features as the years go by are inevitable, but isn’t it strange how we don’t see those changes in ourselves, until we look through old photos?

  37. BEAUTIFUL at every age! You are an inspiration. Now that I am here in Colorado where people are more natural, I decided to stop coloring my hair!

  38. InfiniteZip says:

    Through the years, more and more amazingly beautiful😊
