A Walk Through Time

She walks alone with only memories to keep her company
Her shadow staying close to insulate her every move
The warmth of the sun and the sand between her toes
Comfort and strengthen her as she takes each step
A life well spent with more to come…
Susan

“Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.”
Walt Whitman

Residing near the beach, I love to take my camera on photo-shoots when there is an impending storm, darkened skies, with the threat of rain or even snow! The shadows call to me and the fog is my friend. I hear sounds…yet most of the surroundings lie hidden from view. This allows me to escape into my own world, creating the next canvas for another of my “paintings.”

    “:To know how to grow old is the mast work of wisdom,
    and one of the most difficult chapters in the great art of living.”
    {Amiel}

    A wonderful capture Susan!!! Bill

  • She is a wonderful woman…She deserves this special attention… She dislikes being photographed… I received the ultimate words from her, stating that she “loved” the experience and how I made her smile…

    Thank you, Bill…I always welcome your quotes…
