Nurturing Thursday



Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind.
We grow old only by deserting our ideals.
You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt;
As young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear;
As young as your hope, as old as your despair.

– Samuel Ullman

DP Weekly Photo Challenge: Boundaries

Boundaries impose limits on us, whether they’re social constructs or real, physical objects. Having seven housecats and not wanting them to roam, our pool patio provides the perfect boundary.  Although I have caught all of them at one time or another, here is Nicky looking at me longingly to come out from his confines.

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Challenger’s Choice (Architecture)

The 4th Monday of the month is Challenger’s Choice at Lens and Pens by Sally.

I took this picture of Orlando City Hall a while back. I just liked the design of the door and windows. I didn’t realize until later that the reflection of the Grand Bohemian Hotel across the street showed up in the small window above the door!

Centered - Lake Eola

This sculpture is titled “Centered” by CJ Rench, located at Lake Eola, Orlando, Florida. It makes me think of two hands holding up something in the center.
