A Path By Any Other Name Would Seem As Sweet


Does it really matter which path you take?


Path at the beach cutting through the dune grass.


Path/street in the city......heading to the park.

"Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked,
in which you can walk with love and reverence."
....Henry David Thoreau

  1. My path is the concrete kind
    but one could hardly tell
    as I often get lost in my head.
    My photography can attest to that...
    Have a good day!!

    1. And not a bad one at that Bruno! You are so fortunate to have one of the most beautiful cities in the world at your fingertips! So that you can continue to have fun with your interpretation of it through photography. Keep it up and have a great evening.

    1. OOPPS! I misread you Lorraine. Glad you're still around 50%!!
      I guess enjoying the moment, no matter what it is, is the key.

  3. Beautiful shot, and think that the love and reverence is definitely the key to success in whichever path that you take. Have an awesome day Jim!

    1. Thanks so much Jeanne. Bringing 'love and reverence' along with us can really help us through those 'difficult' moments.

    1. It sure does Debra. I have taken a few paths that just were not the ones I really wanted to do but felt I had too for a number of reasons, I learned from that.

    1. Hi Janie. Those 'roads' are usually the best and most fulfilling for us.

    1. Hi Fiona. I really like that area down at the beach with a number of crisscrossing paths through the the dune grass.

  9. I have to admit, Jim, that I am much more into wild paths than concrete paths! Loved the photos of Ron and Sophie in the dune grass. I've been dancing around to "Dancing Queen," and occurred to me that that's part of my problem! I just can't listen to the song, I've got to dance around to it several times! And time flies! Did you ever se the musical based on Abba: "Momma Mia?" I have no clue how to punctuate that! LOL Too much time with third graders! I had Rufus and Gracie heeling, sitting, staying on our long walks together. But they always did the best job when they knew I had a treat for each of them in my hands. Loved the painting of the children in the dingy and the story of the nun. I never could have made it in a convent, although I remember being entranced by the nuns in the convent in our neighborhood when I lived in Charlottetown as a small child ~ much to the consternation of my Northern Baptist father! I hope you are enjoying your day!

    1. You would have been a great nun, Louise! You would have livened up the convent!!

  11. Good thoughts as a week is coming to and end.... "People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost." Dalai Lama
