What better way to tell time than through the body of content.”

                                        

This quote was based on a suggestion made by Michelangelo, from the book: The Agony and Ecstasy (author Irving Stone).

A good thought to keep in mind. Especially when frustrated by the rapid passage of time. 😦  Can you relate?

We will not be remembered by what we didn’t accomplish in this lifetime, but rather by what we did. I think having a blog is a very good start or addition to anyone’s personal, creative record of accomplishments.

I hope you also enjoy another one of my recent Autumn photos. The colors have remained so vivid this year. This pic was taken just a couple of weeks ago. We had snow yesterday but it’s already melted away.

  1. A good choice for your quote. I would rather be known for what I do, than what I have.
    Did you take that shot. Statice is one of my favorte everlastings.

  2. You are really inspiring at the moment, G. The quote is very relevant to many of us, I suspect. It is more important to focus on what we have accomplished than on what we haven’t. It’s an important point to remember. Beautiful photo!

  3. I love the pic, and read The Agony and Ecstasy three times, starting when I was fifteen. Stone’s best work.

  4. lovely pic and accomanying words!!!

  5. Dear Sandy, Selma, Billy and Shraddha,

    Thank you for your kind words.

    Many hugs, G 🙂

  6. Those flowers are very, very beautiful, Geraldine. Thanks for your visits to my blog.

  7. Beautiful picture! I so agree about the passage of time! It seems to go quicker and quicker and I am slower and slower-lol. I love having the visual journaling of my blog to document this time. Have a wonderful weekend Geraldine!
