Message from Walkiria
I am no photographer in the definition of the word as I understand it but regardless of that I do find great pleasure in being a witness to what is around me in a given moment. Sometimes is a color, but it can be a face, an expression, a sunset, sunrise or animals. Life happening is a constant source of wonder to my eyes. If I ever improve on that will be a plus to me, but the joy of doing is already here and quite rewarding.

I'm slightly insane(I admit that). It is not what you gather but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived.

My symphony
"To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury,and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babies and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony." William Henry Channing.

J 'essaye à travers mon blog de célèbrer l'amour,la paix ,la tolérance. Gandhi a dit un jour, "Il n'y a pas de chemin vers la paix, la paix est le chemin". Pour moi, cela signifie que si nous voulons voir la paix dans notre monde externe, nous devons commencer par trouver la paix dans nos propres vies. La paix vient à nous à ces moments quand nous calmons nos esprits et que nous nous laissons aller dans nos esprits. C'est alors que nous commençons à écouter. Et quand nos coeurs sont pleins, il est temps pour nous d'agir avec compassion. Et nous ne pouvons plus avoir peur des définitions de l'amour d'hier. Nous devons apprendre à laisser tomber les étiquettes qui nous séparent. C'est ce qui nous garde enfermés dans l'illusion. Derrière cette façade il y a un être humain, qui, tout comme vous et moi, veut vivre en paix. Nous ne pouvons plus mettre la paix sur les épaules de nos hommes politiques. Nous devons endosser notre responsabilité individuelle. Les semences de la paix sont en nous, dans nos coeurs. La paix commence avec vous et moi.

Favorite quote:

"...imagine a puddle waking up one morning and thinking, 'This is an interesting world I find myself in, an interesting hole I find myself in, fits me rather neatly, doesn't it? In fact it fits me staggeringly well, must have been made to have me in it!' This is such a powerful idea that as the sun rises in the sky and the air heats up and as, gradually, the puddle gets smaller and smaller, it's still frantically hanging on to the notion that everything's going to be alright, because this world was meant to have him in it, was built to have him in it; so the moment he disappears catches him rather by surprise. I think this may be something we need to be on the watch out for." Douglas Adams
