Inner Beauty

“Consider a tree for a moment. As beautiful as trees are to look at, we don’t see what goes on underground – as they grow roots. Trees must develop deep roots in order to grow strong and produce their beauty. But we don’t see the roots. We just see and enjoy the beauty. In much the same way, what goes on inside of us is like the roots of a tree.” Joyce Meyer

Merry Christmas

Thank you to all my followers for your support through this year 2016. It’s been a challenge keeping the blog since I left life in Miami to move to Managua, Nicaragua. Photo opportunities can be scarce, therefore creativity is a must. My only hope is that you keep enjoying my images & quotes shared.

“May Christmas bring in your life the flame of eternal light. May you always smile and be blessed in the ray of Hope and Faith. Merry Christmas!” (source: inspirationallovequotesimages.com)

A Feast

“Champagne arrived in flûtes on trays, and we emptied them with gladness in our hearts… for when feasts are laid and classical music is played, where champagne is drunk once the sun has sunk and the season of summer is alive in spicy bloom, and beautiful women fill the room, and are generous with laughter and smiles… these things fill men’s hearts with joy and remind one that life’s bounty is not always fleeting but can be captured, and enjoyed. It is in writing about this scene that I relive this night in my soul.” Roman Payne, Rooftop Soliloquy
