“I know for sure: Your journey begins with a choice to get up, step out, and live fully.” – Oprah Winfrey

 

Scene in Boston (II)

From a recent trip to Boston. I got a couple of cool pictures from the plane, take a look!

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ― Anaïs Nin

 

Scene in New York City

“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”- Terry Pratchett

a jolly good morning

I woke up early and decided to go on a walk while most people were sleeping in for the holiday today. With no particular destination in mind, I picked a direction and just kept walking. First through the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), where I stumbled on some cool art. After walking in Bolton Hill I decided to head to Druid Hill Park. It was a refreshing and peaceful walk, and I absolutely enjoyed the change in scenery over the 4 mile walk.

Quiet Moments

“This-this was what made life: a moment of quiet, the water falling in the fountain, the girl’s voice…a moment of captured beauty. He who is truly wise will never permit such moments to escape.” – Roger Bannister

Sunflower Kind of Day

Suppose you went to the farmer’s market and could only buy one thing – what would it be? I’d choose flowers without hesitation. And that’s just what I did today.

“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow. That’s what sunflowers do.” – Helen Keller
