“What most people need to learn in life is how to love people and use things instead of using people and loving things.”

A walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty, and in the point of Life. — Thomas Jefferson
don't drink out of the pitcher!!
or the milk jug!
Initially...my idea was to have the fish in his/her bowl on the table and to stand beside it spitting a rainbow shaped stream into the bowl...now that would have been neat!!! But it still turned out pretty cool :)
life lived, lesson learned, never trust just anyone...
How slippery can it be?
It is important “Don't dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer.” By Denis Waitley
Because, “Mistakes are part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons can only be learned the hard way.” By unknown
We have to realize that “There is a slippery step at every man's door.” By H. W. Thompson
Which is of “Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward.“ By unknown
Therefore, „What a word is truth. Slippery, tricky, unreliable. I tried in these books to tell the truth.” By Lillian Hellman
In addition to that, “As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” By Henry David Thoreau
Finally, “March on. Do not tarry. To go forward is to move toward perfection. March on, and fear not the thorns, or the sharp stones on life's path.” By Kahlil Gibran
In the end we all have to make a deep mental path and it is worth it.

Open doors always lead to something more
It has been an exciting summer this year to see juvenile Red-headed Woodpeckers at my feeders on a regular basis. I was thrilled to pieces when I was taking pictures of one of them at this seed cake feeder when the adult showed up and they actually shared the feeder for quite some time.
Since they are otherwise always chasing each other off when a second one approaches, I can only assume this adult is the parent of this juvenile.

We had just finished a wonderful tall mast sunset sailboat cruise this summer in Sister Bay, Wisconsin, and were walking back to the car. I happened to turn around and see this scene unfolding. I grabbed my camera one more time and ran down to the docks to capture this wonderful scene of a Father teaching his kids to fish in the last of the evening light.
Sometimes a simple photo expedition can teach you so many things - about yourself, and others, and about what really matters in life. Suffice it to say that somehow I miraculously ended up with someone who is incredibly kind and selfless and patient, and though I may not be worthy of that, I'll gladly spend the rest of my days trying to be.

Many of life's early lessons are learned at the dog park :)
When people walk away from you, let them go. It doesn't mean they are bad people, it just means that their part of your story is over.

Hardest Life Lesson is Time to say goodbye:
- Time to say goodbye to our friendship
- Time to say goodbye to our relationship
- Time to say goodbye to our love ones.
Here is a song "Time to say Goodbye"

The reason for our suffering, in all walks of life, is our resistance to the truth.
Sometimes it’s brutally hard to accept life’s greatest lessons. And yet we must!
Because it’s lessons like these that ultimately make our lives beautiful, by showing us how to thrive even through the toughest...
Why would I need to take my filters with me? I am only taking my camera in case a storm happens while I am out tonight!
This is what I said to myself on this afternoon, as I left my bag of every single one of my filters sitting at home. After all it was a dull day with rain pouring from the sky for the major part of it. 20 minutes later, this was happening. Lets back up a little though… a key event also happened 5 minutes before this.
After deciding it may be a decent sunset and rushing down over the rocks like a mad man, I spotted a rather good vantage point of the rock just to the left of the above photo, with some nice gentle waves flowing over it. I thought I would be awesome and be able to get a photograph of this taking place before the next big set rolled in – I was a little wrong, and soon wet from the waist down. I thought it was quite funny! :D What I didn’t bother to check was my lens – which was now covered in a fine mist. Shooting most of the shots after that at a small aperture to get a long shutter speed (no filters remember…) caused very spotted pictures. I only got a few alright pictures as the light faded.
So, life’s little lessons fon this day were;
1) Carry all my gear even if I don’t think I will need it.
2) After being hit by a freak wave, clean my lens, or at least check it!
I hope others can learn from my mistakes also. :)
