comment of the day (to keep you going)
My morning run. Photographed with Nikon Coolpix.
The other day, I received a lovely comment. I thought I'd share it here with you:
just a few thoughts from other people to keep you motivated:
No one’s interested in something that you didn’t do.
- Gord Downey, The Tragically Hip
If you're at a dead end, take a deep breath, stomp your foot and shout BEGIN!
You never know where it will take you.
- Twyla Tharp, The Creative Habit
Advice for writers:
Show up, pay attention, tell the truth, and don't be attached to results.
- Rosellen Brown
One of my personal favorites...
To my mind there must be, at the bottom of it all, not an equation, but an utterly simple idea.
And to me that idea, when we finally discover it, will be so compelling, so inevitable, that we will say to one another,
"Oh, how beautiful. How could it have been otherwise?"
- John Archibald Wheeler
Thanks, taerna. I totally needed those thoughts!
Have a great weekend, everyone.

Updated to announce that two of my fellow Shutter Sisters, Jen Lemen and Stephanie Roberts, just won a photography contest: they will receive $50,000 to travel around the world spreading hope. Can you imagine?
Congratulations, ladies. Couldn't happen to more well-deserving folks. Really, really.
