Collectif Creativity: 13Sep2022

By Lynne Ayers

I made a book titled Imaginings – my photographs with added quotations. This is a sampling. 


“Sometimes, I sit alone under the stars and think of the galaxies inside my heart, and truly wonder if anyone will ever want to make sense of all that I am.” – Testy McTesterson

“Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many coloured lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“To see a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wild flower. Hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.” – William Blake, Auguries of Innocence

“. . . the walls of my castle are broken; the shadows are many, and the wind breathes cold through the broken battlements and casements.” – Bram Stoker, Dracula

“I don’t think of all the misery but the beauty that still remains.” – Anne Frank

“If you shut the door to all errors, the truth will be shut out.” – Rabindranath Tagore

“Nothing is predestined. The obstacles of your past can become the gateways that lead to new beginnings.” – Ralph H. Blum

“The rain to the wind said, You push and I’ll pelt. They so smote the garden bed that the flowers actually knelt, And lay lodged – though not dead. I know how the flowers felt.” Robert Frost.

  1. Very nice Lynne. By the way, the photo of the door but especially the logo above it has a special meaning for me. RIDGID is the trade name for an American manufacturer which produces very high quality plumbing tools.
