“The Secret Paths Of Water” – Photo Dedication to “Memoirs Of A Geisha”

One of my favorite novels is “Memoirs Of A Geisha“. It’s about a woman, Nitta Sayuri, who endures the worst conditions in her life from being sold into slavery at a very young age to becoming a Geisha. Through out her haunting story, she speaks with a wisdom of compassion and love and how she endures all of her hardships. One attribute for why Sayuri is able to overcome might be because she is said to have a lot of “water” in her personality. In light of this, the book is filled with the most beautiful and moving “water” quotes which have always stuck with me. So, this photo above (taken in the Black Hills National Forest of South Dakota) I dedicate to the element of “water”, Nitta Sayuri and her journey, and “Memoirs Of A Geisha”.

“Where Spring Blooms, There Is Hope”

Happy First Day Of Spring 2020, Everyone! With a hard winter and hard health challenges facing mankind this year with Coronavirus Covid-19, it’s been challenging at times to believe there is “hope” for better tomorrows and better seasons. However, “nature” and a bigger power tells us differently. In all of their wonder, they shoot out messages to us every day if we only stop, look more closely, and listen. With that said, take comfort in this beautiful passage and never give up…
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” ~Romans 12:12

“Become The Buffalo”

Post Inspiration: “Cows run away from the storm while the buffalo charges toward it – and gets through it quicker. Whenever I’m confronted with a tough challenge, I do not prolong the torment, I become the buffalo.” ~Wilma Mankiller (first female principal chief of the Cherokee Nation)
