PASSAGES

Paint Party Friday


  A healthy human environment is one
 in which we try to make sense of our limits, 
of the accidents that can always befall us 
and the passage of time
 which inexorably changes us.
                                                               Rowan Williams

 Painting
is the passage 
from the chaos of the emotions
 to the order of the possible.
                                                                            Balthus


Old age
 and the passage of time
 teach all things. 
                                                    Sophocles

    1. Thank you. I think the photo was taken in Brazil but several people have mentioned it looks like something near where they live. It reminds me of The California coast.
