Last
night's
Sunset
over
Saturna
and
Gabriola
Islands

(no touch-ups!)









Three passions have governed my life: The longings for love, the search for knowledge, And unbearable pity for the suffering of [humankind].

Love brings ecstasy and relieves loneliness. In the union of love I have seen In a mystic miniature the prefiguring vision Of the heavens that saints and poets have imagined.
With equal passion I have sought knowledge. I have wished to understand the hearts of [people]. I have wished to know why the stars shine.

Love and knowledge led upwards to the heavens, But always pity brought me back to earth; Cries of pain reverberated in my heart Of children in famine, of victims tortured And of old people left helpless. I long to alleviate the evil, but I cannot, And I too suffer.

This has been my life; I found it worth living.

from Bertrand Russell - adapted

I fully concur....

Thank you Krystyna,

things are not always what they appear to be.
Some aspects of my life are truly blessed, others completely "orphaned".
Compared to many I am immensely fortunate, compared some other prior points of reference, I want more and better and happier...

What to make of it all???
We humans have this funny quirk - the grass always appears to be greener in someone else's yard!
Or, like dogs, we chase our own tales.
This shall also make for good English practice.
lol


Love and joy
