Is really meant to be monumental, radical and overt.


The shadows that fall at the end of the day are there to serve as a reminder...
it matters.  They matter.
What leaves an impression..
is meant to be seen.

As expressions...


Don't give up!
Don't waver!
Don't despair.

The shadow that follows you down the hall may be the very essence of your pride and joy.

Even of the next generation.

They're watching.

Each new day presents a new opportunity to make it right. Each day as you awake step out in front, head towards the sun, keep facing it and the dark shadows shall not cross thy path... ~ Unknown

“Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.”  ~ Aesop

  1. Interesting thoughts to ponder! Like the shadow analogy (is that the right word there...I never remember!) And love the photos!!! Even the laundry one - I think it's one of my favourites so far!!! :D

  2. Yes!! You used the correct word... (I hope this even made sense...) ... and yes, my friend! I couldn't resist... the laundry hanging is for you!! I was hoping you'd get a kick out of it... and besides, you knew I couldn't get away with a "Home Quotes and Sentiments" post with laundry of some sort!

    1. Hahaha! I'm honoured! This photo just for me!! ;). Yes...surprising its taken this far into the challenge for laundry to make its appearance! ;)

  3. So cute, the shadow fun... I remember doing this as a kid myself and teaching mine as well... Loved it...
