About Me

My photo
i moved where my heart had drifted off to long before. i live on a hill of hundred acres, where my dreams have merged with the view. it is quiet from machine noises yet loud with sounds of horses, dogs, cats chickens and ducks. nature is the true artist in resident and i am just her apprentice who often gets lost in her gaze. once and a while i travel back to cities and foreign places to put into photographs what i have learned, yet always, part of my heart is left on the hill..

Besides the noble act of getting things done,
there is the noble art of leaving things undone.
The wisdom of life consists in the 
elimination of non- essentials.
Lin Yutang.

I love that quote, I thing lately I have excelled in the "art of leaving things undone" And you know what, it does not bother me anymore & it makes for a more peaceful life.

This is a wonderful quote. I hadn't heard it before. I feel like I need to jot it down and carry it around with me...as a reminder.

I had a look at your blogs and I must admit I was amazed.I find you to be a very original and interesting person. Besides it's the first blog I've seen this week and not feel the need to yawn....keep up the good work ..."I'll be watching you!" ;)

This is one of my favorite quotes. Since I was really young I was influenced into thinking that it is always important to finish what you started. While this is true of somethings in many cases it proves to be false and a heavy weight. At least to me it was something really heavy weighing down on my conscience. Now I try to step back and view what it is that I am aiming for in life and discontinue any activities that are leading me in circles or causing deviation from my main goal.
