LOVE the photo!! Don't you wish old buildings could talk and tell us all their stories and what they've seen!
In a word - YES.
thank god for the laurels, eh? Cool photo and life-affirming haiku...
this is a beautiful affirmation of a life well lived; weathered, wise and willing to stand tall beneath honest skies with shelter and fortitude.may we all stand in gratitude to the gift of each day.
Very nice, too bad this old building did not arrive the same way.
The ravages of time have made their marks. Love that the softness of character is stillevident.
Both your photo an haiku make me think...mellow. Mellow is good.
lovely haiku ~ very contemplative ~ great photo shot! thanks, ^_^
Love the feel of this photo, Annie. Where did you take this picture. It is wonderfully forlorn.
We were driving east out of Turlock in the Central Valley of California and going into the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas. Lots of history in the rangeland and up into the gold country. If you keep heading east as the crow flies, you end up a little north of the Yosemite Valley.
Annie, this is a wonderful pic, the ambiance feels graceful, to use it in connection to one's time of life is perfect! x
When looking at life the right way every stage has its blessings. :-)
At 74, I feel the same as you write. Wasn't what I expected, but it's actually better. Love your photo, too.
It is amazing how the struggles of life shape us so completely into who we are today... lovely Annie. XO
