For the first time in four years, I have not kept up with the August Break. I have decided that I will not beat myself up about this fact.
Often times we watch and wait for things that do not appear. We dream of far off destinations and transformation.
I shall continue to wait, patiently.

Love. What can be said about love that has not already been said?
Katherine Hepburn said "Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get, only with what you are expecting to give."
Love does does not grow under pressure. It is not something to be contained, allowed only to breathe within that which contains it.
Love is energy. Love is growth. Love is healing. Love Is Unconditional.

“It's no fun to be yellow. Maybe I'm not all yellow. I don't know. I think maybe I'm just partly yellow and partly the type that doesn't give much of a damn if they lose their gloves. One of my troubles is, I never care too much when I lose something - it used to drive mother crazy when I was a kid. Some guys spend days looking for something they've lost. I never seem to have anything that if I lost it I'd care too much. Maybe that's why I'm partly yellow. It's no excuse, though. It really isn't. What you should be is not yellow at all.”
― J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

It is time for the August Break, once again. How time flies! This is just about the only time of the year that I post on a regular basis, and therefore, always look forward to it.
I have been asking myself recently, why a blog? Sometimes I feel like the smallest fish in the pond. I don't have anything earth shattering that I feel I need to share with the world, that can not be found through other means.
I find it, in my case, to be a place to gather things that mean something to me, such as photos that I have shot and words that go deep into the place I dwell.
Sometimes you will find a quote that speaks to me, a song lyric that is relevant to my life at a particular moment, a passage from a book that I am reading, etc...
It is nice to have a little corner in which to place my thoughts, mainly for me to look back and reflect on the place I was at a particular juncture of my life.
A place I can swim freely, without all of the eyes of the world watching, but allowing those who want take a little peak below the surface, to do so.
Welcome to The August Break for those of you that are joining for the first time, and Welcome back, to those who are returning.
