more tulips from les photo archives - I guess we've got Spring on our minds

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice
at the end of the day saying
"I will try again tomorrow".

Mary Anne Radmacher

I've been feelin' kinda quiet these days. Quiet's good ... usually. It's difficult for me at times, to be quiet, to be still but those times when I'm able to - it does feel so good. Heard an interesting interview with this guy, Jonah Lehrer this past week on fav CBC show Q - it makes perfect sense (to me) that the darn ol' black dog can and does serve a useful purpose. Read his somewhat contraversial New York Times article The Upside of Depression here

A quiet mind cureth all.

  3. Susan, these tulips are glowing! They seem to have the light inside of them. Your photography captures light so well, and your sense of balance and color shows what an artist you are.

    The paragraphs about the "black dog" really made me look up all your references. William Styron describes depression better than anyone I have ever known. And who could forget Winston Churchill's "black dog" that almost destroyed him? And, of course, Abraham Lincoln was plaqued with it. I am in "good company," but I had rather be in terrible company than to be so ravaged by it. Now, I am doing pretty well, but I AM on medication. Love to you, the CB (Is everything ok there?) and all the babies!
