“Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.” Henri Nouwen
White is the color of decomposition. White is also no color. White is nothing. In photography, the paper is white, next comes the light which is also white; then the shadow is created, the apparition.” Dieter Appelt
“You can miss places. You can miss people.
Just know that what you’re really missing is the way things were. And even if you could go there again…. see them again…. you can’t go back. They’re not the same. You’re not the same. The loss of them changed you.” Rant Suzuki
Hello my dear friends, lately I’ve been MIA (missing in action). For quite a while I haven’t visited anything interesting but soon I will be gathering new material. I will keep sharing from my archives. This is me outside of one of the many beautiful churches in Granada, Nicaragua. “Every moment is a fresh beginning.” T.S. Eliot

This image is one of my most important I believe, because it is sadly so powerful. A sad portrait. It reflects the harsh reality of poverty, struggles and lack of so many things, perhaps even joy (Granada, Nicaragua 2008).
“I think I like wildflowers best,” I explain. “They just grow wherever they want. No one has to plant them. And then their seeds blow in the wind and they find a new place to grow.” Rebecca Donovan, What If
“As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness — just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.” Laura Ingalls Wilder
