Postcard from Up North

Wherever you go, go with all your heart. ~ Confucius

(Can’t get enough of the many faces and hues of Little Traverse Bay in winter–I know she played her role in bringing me here, wholeheartedly.)

    To be great, be whole;
    Exclude nothing, exaggerate nothing that is not you.
    Be whole in everything. Put all you are
    Into the smallest thing you do.
    So, in each lake the moon shines with splendor
    Because it blooms up above.

    Fernando Pessoa

      Love the photo. Love the Confucius quote. Love the Pessoa quote in Paula’s comment!

    Yes, and to Sofia’s post, I would add, “and, Love You and the beauty and sensibility you bring to our days!”

    NIce work, cousin. What are you shooting with these days?

      I have a Nikon D5100 that I bought earlier last year, with two lenses. I love it. Love it. Love it. And looking forward to getting the wide angle lens for the gorgeous expanse of the north country.
