Thinking Out Loud



What is stopping us from admitting that the world is in great need of compassion and hope? Of what are we afraid? 




Better yet, what is stopping us from doing something about it? Could I make a difference?




I suspect that it is a feeling of powerlessness that we all experience on occasion that is stopping us. How would the actions of one really have an effect at all?




We live in a world where we expect instant gratification and do not like waiting for things to happen.




This is a shame because some things are well-worth waiting for.....especially if the effects of which could be earth-changing.




So let's start right now......let's be more positive in our outlook and begin to show compassion on a daily basis.  What's there to reflect on?


    These photos are all done in the Raw mode and have not been manipulated afterwards.....I'm just      learning about this method. A photographer in Provincetown suggested I try it out. I told her I would. These were taken Tuesday, early evening, on the Halifax waterfront.

  10. Sharon, I am just learning about it too. There are some advantages as to end product and there are some disadvantages re time, storage.....depends I believe what you want at the end.

    As I learn more I'll share.

  11. In a world filled with negativity, it's difficult to stay positive. We must remind ourselves constantly.

    It helps when you have some beautiful photos to view.

  12. Like the sentiment and love the photos. Does "in the raw" mean that you were naked when you took them? :)

  13. there are so many good people in the world who want to do good but don't know where or how to start. Start with a smile and a hello, ask, with real intention what you can do to help someone in need. Take a chance...we are all afraid of failing or being ridiculed..take the step.

  18. Compassion, it's an easy word to say, and a hard philosophy to embrace. Here's to trying.

  19. Love the pics. The tumbler of Tweety and Sylvester is fabulous. And I love this post! We can, as individuals, make a differance whether we know it or not. I agree with you about the whole instant gratification statement. Personally I like to wait and see what happens and then see the end results. For instance like a garden! Or working with an abused animal until one day you can see the trust return in their eyes.
    Sorry I haven't been around much to 'visit'. I do think of you every single day. xoxo
