White

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

Architecture

“I enjoy art, architecture, museums, churches and temples; anything that gives me insight into the history and soul of the place I’m in.” Cherie Lunghi

Everyday Life

“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

Life

“In life, a person will come and go from many homes. We may leave a house, a town, a room, but that does not mean those places leave us. Once entered, we never entirely depart the homes we make for ourselves in the world. They follow us, like shadows, until we come upon them again, waiting for us in the mist.”  Ari Berk, Death Watch
