A Single Photograph

“We have always held to the hope, the belief, the conviction that there is a better life,
a better world, beyond the horizon.”

    1. The header is not really new, although not that old. But I do change the images in it, now and then, so it does look different from time to time.

    1. That's a good eye, Jim. On the island across, you can see the windmills, but before that there are some tiny sailboats.

  9. Such a calming photo. Sometimes I think people are so busy looking for what's over the horizon that they don't notice the wonderful things all around them. Have a good day, Martha!

    1. I couldn't agree more! Sometimes what you need is right there in front of you.

  10. So true. What a beautiful pic. Sometimes seeing the ones I love reminds me of the better things right in front of me. And sometimes, I believe the horizon can be a difficult time in one's life that shall pass and lead he/she to a better state.
