I Know What I Saw

Twice each year the Thursday blog is a sampling of photos and quotes. It’s that time again and I hope you enjoy both.

  1. This is so rich. Too much.
    The quote on the small city with the photo of Tyler, touched me.
    EB kills me. I was just talking to a friend in Brooklin, home of EB and Wooden Boat.
    Thank you for the gift this morning.

    • Thank you, Connie! I appreciate that. You must be talking about the white wine and the prosciutto.

      • as to the white wine and prosciutto, i am reminded of one of MY favorite quotes:
        “the worlds problems will not be solved over a glass of white wine.” —- Dewars Scotch!

        • However, I don’t recall hearing “In Scotch is Truth” but “En vino est veritas” I could be wrong – but not likely.

          • touche’. never let it be said that i disrespected ( as opposed to abused) wine…… especially the red variety.

  4. Thanks Fred. The Pascal quote reminded me of the old chestnut, “Breathes there a man with soul so dead who never to himself has said, ‘This is my own, my native land.’”

    • Going nativist on me, Jack? For me the great quote (but overused) is T.S. Eliot from Four Quartets: “We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” The photo is one of an empty closet in Haley’s house in Hollywood as we moved her back to Texas a few weeks ago. I loved the light. I loved her coming back to Texas even though visiting her in LA was always fun.

  5. Fred: Thank you ever so much for making me always look forward to Thursday mornings. I love he photos and quotes. There should be a book.

    • How kind of you, Mike. Actually, we are working on some kind of book format. I doubt we will get a publisher because they want books guaranteed to sell at least 10,000 quickly. This is more of a compilation of things and that is not going to sell. Likely, we will self-publish.

    • Thank you, Mary Ann. I hope you liked the picture from Pawley’s in the moonlight! Next year we will be there for sure.

  8. In our wanderings on this beautiful but soiled planet, our openness to the serendipitous encounter that threatens enlightment & tears of joy, brings affinity with the philosophical musings paired so lovingly with the scenes your photos have captured so timelessly. Thank you♪

    • Thank you, David. “The world will be saved by beauty” is probably idealistic but it keeps me looking!
