One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach.  One can collect only a few, and they are more beautiful if they are few.–Anne Morrow Lindbergh


“I was like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.”
–Issac Newton


“Beauty is an all-pervading presence.  It unfolds to the numberless flowers of the Spring; it waves in the branches of the trees and in the green blades of grass; it haunts the depths of the earth and the sea, and gleams out in the hues of the shell and the precious stone.  And not only these minute objects, but the ocean, the mountains, the clouds, the heavens, the stars, the rising and the setting sun all overflow with beauty.  The universe is its temple; and those people who are alive to it can not lift their eyes without feeling themselves encompassed with it on every side.”
–William Ellery Channing
“We are bound to our bodies like an oyster is to its shell.”
Today is a smooth white seashell, hold it close and listen to the beauty of the hours.
Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
  1. nice shots, Janet. I like the shell and the sea grass. It makes a nice counter poitn – as does the shell and ocean foam. The foam came out great. BTW – so did the cowgirl boots shot against the house backdrop. looked like a painting.


  2. I didn’t say anything about resonating with others. Who does that?
    I don’t even know what that means. Don’t get me in trouble.
    All I said was that I liked your lousy foam and boots and the crap next to the shell. That’s all!
    If that’s resonating i don’t want any part of it.

    • Too much coffee? Nuclear war in Florida? I’m just pretending I never read that, turning off my computer and getting some sleep. Have to be ready for the last day of the painters tomorrow.

  3. So that’s how you resonate in Ohio?
    Turn off the lights and go to sleep?

    Here, we at least screw up elections.

  4. Stephen Wright, comedian, once said, something to the effect of, “I have a large seashell collection. I store them on beaches all over the world. Perhaps, you’ve seen it.”
