The only person who should ever have to live by your standards is you…

Monday, June 30th, 2008

The title above is from the daily message I am getting daily from The Universe, and I happen to agree with it. But how about you?
The rest of the message is:

Let everyone else off the hook. Besides, it’s doubtful they’ve lived as much, dreamt as big, or will ever be able to saunter quite like you.

The name of this orchid is Calanthe triplicata…

Saturday, June 21st, 2008

While shooting some photos of different species of orchids I had no possibility to find out their names and take a note of these. I wrote to several orchid related web sites, asking if anybody knew the specie of this orchid, and today I received a reply from a Japanese University professor with a link to her site describing the specie and several photos too.

And to stay on the same track as in my previous posts, here is what George William Childs once wrote:

Do not keep the alabaster box of your love and
friendship sealed up until your friends are dead.
Fill their lives with sweetness. Speak approving,
cheering words while their ears can hear them
and while their hearts can be thrilled and made
happier. The kind things you mean to say when
they are gone, say before they go.


Only those who see the invisible can attempt the impossible...

And the photo here above is a Self-Portrait shot a few days ago. What Dick Eastman wrote seemed very appropriate with it: “Only those who see the invisible can attempt the impossible.”

With these thoughts I am wishing you a splendid weekend and will talk to you soon

This is so much in tune of what I’ve been thinking and writing lately that I had to share it here with you…

Always Remember… Not so Totally Useless

The above photo and also the one here under were taken on the same day. The one bellow was dedicated to all of my friends on Flickr, and I placed it with the following poem, which is by an Unknown Author and was published on the Forward to a Better day ezine.

Always remember to forget
The things that made you sad
But never forget to remember
The things that made you glad.

Always remember to forget
The friends that proved untrue.
But don’t forget to remember
Those that have stuck by you.

Always remember to forget
The troubles that have passed away.
But never forget to remember
The blessings that come each day.


for all my friends on Flickr...

Criticism is at times so Totally Useless…

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

Many of you know the saying: “Don’t cry over anything that won’t cry over you.” But do you agree with it? And do you act this way with any of the circumstances that you encounter and have to deal within your life? As for me – I simply can’t work it out and keep crying over things that won’t cry over me. Not always with the real tears, but, than my heart is crying, or my soul, and everything brings out some types of tears. Even so with my photography.

another world... (for Taty's friend Marcellus)

Or the things that I write. But than artists are overly sensitive and easily hurt.
This is why I am always trying to be sweet and friendly with people, also with the once that I don’t know. A person cannot always be sweet, but one could be polite, and friendly always, and should be really. Think about it for a minute… A simple smile could mean the world to someone who is feeling lonely and abandoned, or simply sad. It’s much cheaper than the petrol prices at the present, but the energy and power a simple smile could bring is enormous! A good word could make this person feel better right away, and make him/her see the world and everything in a new light.
