Something you never did

When I first got here, I’d see this view from my window on most evenings. I’ve not seen it in ages as the weather has gotten colder and filled with clouds. At the moment, it’s hard to believe that this place had sunsets like this and is near sandy beaches. This quote from an unknown [...]

To harm oneself

This is Durdle Door here in beautiful Dorset. I think I’ve chosen one of the best locations to study wildlife conservation here in England. Durdle Door is a natural rock formation along the Jurassic Coast which is a World Heritage Site. I had the great pleasure of seeing it and there are many more photos [...]

The time we have rushed through life trying to save

In the center of Bournemouth, there’s a hot air balloon (pictured above) which you can go on and see the city from up high on nice, sunny days. I hope to one day go on it. In the meantime, I’ll admire it from the ground. These words by celebrity Will Rogers are one of those [...]

Peace begins with a smile

This is a photo that I took on a stop during my bike trip yesterday. I’m really starting to like it here and having the beach so close is amazing and creates such a great atmosphere. Like I said before, I can’t help but smile. Smiles, when natural, seem to carry far beyond the face. [...]

Your life, because of who you are, has meaning

How amazing is this quote by Barbara de Angelis? I have so many “what if?” thoughts going through my head about my flight tomorrow and everything that’ll follow it, but I just need to calm down and trust. Trust that everything will work out just the way it needs to. I’m a huge ball of excitement, [...]

We would literally astound ourselves

I hope you’ve all had a splendid week! Someone checked on my last poll (there’s a new one up now if you’re interested!) that they’re down in the dumps and, whoever you are, I really hope that you’ve been able to pick yourself up and out of that moment. I’ve been thinking about you! Isn’t [...]

At the end of your own arm

I usually try to have my photograph represent the quote which is featured, but this time the only real connection is that both are beautiful. This is a Swedish proverb that I found to be so clever and true and the photo is of the gorgeous sunset I had the pleasure of viewing thanks to [...]

Once he grows up

The older I get, the more differences I see between children and adults. Whereas children feel free to do whatever they please, adults feel constricted to rules and beliefs that have formed boundaries around what they do, say, think, and every aspect of their lives. Yes, some children react to these things faster than others [...]

That has made all the difference

I believe the original words from The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost go like this: “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I– I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.” As you can see, the one in the image is more fitting. It’s also the way I’ve [...]

The love of a cat

This is the image of Kuba on the flyers I had hung up which I was able to take down today, because… Kuba came home!! Last night at about 3am, all on his own! He was perfectly fine other than being very hungry and thin. THANK YOU for being so amazing and patient with me. [...]
