Out of the Mist

Posted by john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 15 March 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Heads Up: A new friend of mine on PictureSocial, Marie, from Western Australia, just joined aminus3. Please give her work a look, along with an aminus3 welcome. Her frangipani yesterday is gorgeous. http://upsadaisy.aminus3.com/ Thanks everybody.


To change the course of your life, choose one of two basic methods:

1. You can direct your energy and attention toward trying to fix your
mind, find your focus, affirm you power, free your emotions, and
visualize positive outcomes so that you can finally develop the
confidence to display the courage to discover the determination to make the
commitment to feel sufficiently motivated to do what it is you need to do.

2. Or you can just do it."

-- Dan Millman , from 'Everyday Enlightenment'.

Like snow, I love how fog edits out so much unwanted clutter in a landscape...leaving only the best to look at.
