All Hallows Eve!

“It’s said that All Hallows’ Eve is one of the nights when the veil between the worlds is thin – and whether you believe in such things or not, those roaming spirits probably believe in you, or at least acknowledge your existence, considering that it used to be their own. Even the air feels different on Halloween, autumn-crisp and bright.”

World Photo Day!

In honor of World Photo Day! I leave you with this photograph as well as this lovely quote:
“You don’t take a photograph. You make it.”

Interpret the subject “Hope”. The more personal the interpretation the better. Avoid cliches.
(When I was younger I battled depression and nearly lost. Years later, the depression still lingers but there is so much happiness, there is so much “Hope”).April 25th.jpg
