Quote of the week

 Photo made between Oamaru and omarama, South Island NZ

“To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common - this is my symphony. William Henry Channing's Symphony

  1. There is a point where enough is more than good enough, Marja. This scene is one. Exquisite.

  2. A symphony spoken long ago by our wise ancestors..gradually disappearing beneath the current fast pace of life. If each of us can follow this, a heaven we can see daily.

  3. Really beautiful photo.What a view!I agree with Elizabeth´s comment,Marja!

  4. Oh Marja. This just takes my breath away.

  5. Awesome picture and great quote.
