October Light

IMG_8203

“Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.”

  25. Incredibly beautiful! And again I feel as if I’m physically in that scene looking up at the beautiful light seeping through the trees. It’s so soothing. I feel a sense of calm looking at that pale yellow glow. I can almost feel it with all my senses, the soft, cool air upon my skin, the earthy fragrance, the sounds of the life surrounding…I also like the little bit of blue sky that manages to get through the trees! It reminds me of a feeling of hope.
    I can stare at this photo all day. It’s mesmerizing.
    And that is one of my favorite quotes!
    Thank you for sharing the beauty you get to experience each day!

    Eliza, your photograph and the quote (which I had never read or heard before) brought a moment of silent beauty to my day for which I am so very grateful. Your blog, it always seems to me, is filled with an appreciation of exactly this kind of life-affirming choice and awe and beauty. Thank you for sharing that with us.
