“The cloud is free only to go with the wind.
The rain is free only in falling.”
– Wendell Berry
I fell in love with this quote after reading it several times. I think it’s about surrender…
Some links for you today:
– Kids With Cameras
– The best sidewalk chalk drawings you have ever seen.
– You may have heard by now that Rose O’Donnell has a blog? I’m a new fan (via California Fever).
FYI: I am madly in love with my Olympus Epic point and shoot and have been taking it around with me a lot lately (obviously much less heavy and bulky than the Rebel). I am always amazed at the great results. (It’s only $78!)
I am in love with my Minolta Freedom Zoom. I just got some beautiful pictures back from my trip to Santa Fe and Los Cerillos. I forget so easily how much I love to take pictures of anything and everything. You make me remember the photographer in me.
oh i love my epics. plural. i found one at the thrift store for 5.99. i popped the battery out of the one in my purse and tried it out. i dont have a digital camera, so i love hearing when people still shoot film. this camera is truly awesome.
i love that you found Rosie’s site. I’ve been visiting for a few months now and I too am a fan. I’ve really enjoyed it.
Thanks for the links. The sidewalk chalk is coolest thing i’ve seen in awhile.
ps. those clouds are so beautiful. i want to eat them, they look like cotton candy.
Did you get to see “Born Into Brothels?” We had the Cleveland opening like 2 weeks ago, and got to meet Ross Kaufmann…a very cool guy. Anyway, just wondering about your thoughts/opinions of the film if you did get to see it.
And, ps, love the sidewalk chalking.
I saw Born into Brothels last week and loved it. It was so beautiful and so sad…I hope you’ve had a chance to see it. I think you’d love it, too.
Thank you for the quote — I am always looking for tasty morsels to feed my brain.
Here is a quote for you. One that came to me as I poured over a new opportunity that materialized on my horizon as of late. The opportunity consists of moving back to Texas (great lesson – one that reoccurs in my life — to never say never!)to work on a 50 acre horse ranch North of Denton and begin manifesting some entreprenuer idea’s that have layed dormant for too long. So – after a long winded introduction here is the quote in all of it’s beautiful simplicity.
“If you always do what you’ve always done, you will get what you always got.” This very idea has had me looking into my patterns of behavior and habits that I have accrued over the years. How can I make this plan wildy successful? What do I need to change in myself to bring my vision to fruition. I came up with: Devote some minutes everyday to visualize your success, meditate on it and create affirmations to be said daily that support your goal(s). Simple as those are — it helped me to realize that this is the change that the quote was talking about. The power of thought is the best tool in a Universe that is full of abundance. And….when you pull more people together who share similar visions and affirmations you can move mountains together. Any thoughts?
I came across the ‘Kids with Camera’ link a few days ago and really like the work being done Calcutta, India. I could have volunteered if a similar project ran somewhere in my city (Mumbai).
And yes, congratulations on being nominated at the photobloggies 🙂
Tell us more about the Epic – why do you love it? It seems like I’ve always been trying to move away from the point and shoot, first with the slr film camera, then going digital, and then the i-zone for fun… But never back to the point and shoot. So why? Is it the simplicity?
I swear, Andrea — you always have the coolest links and quotes!!! Thanks for always inspiring. 🙂
i’m voting for you. good luck.
Kids With Cameras… I love that site! It is what inspired me to start nine sides of sunday with my kids. Now I am thinking about a way to get them each their own cameras. It is so much fun to watch them with the camera. You can see the wheels turning in their little heads…
hi andrea –
do you have any suggestions on a small, starter digital camera? i like your suggestions on these, but i’d love something digital.
