yet another lovely picture, thank you so much for the memory of a very happy day. Due to various difficulties, this is the only chance I have of seeing it again.


Comment by irene roberts on 10th November 2014 at 09:20
A beautiful, peaceful scene.


Comment by A.W. on 10th November 2014 at 09:26
Reminds me of an old poem "go placidly amongst the noise and haste" does anybody know the rest?


Comment by Giovanni on 10th November 2014 at 09:39
The serenity is captured. A beautiful picture. Gives me inspiration to take my easel and paint box out before the weather turns!

Try Wikipedia for the Poem Desiderata


Comment by Giovanni on 10th November 2014 at 10:23
Yes AW - "And stand in check out
queue,
Eagerly purchase those
things to taste
Accompanied with a lovely
brew".


Comment by Aubrey on 10th November 2014 at 10:40
Well done David, you have certainly treated us to some great shots in the last few days.


Comment by Janice on 10th November 2014 at 10:53
Is this the one A.W? Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love, for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is perennial as the grass.

Take kindly to the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.

Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Max Ehrmann c.1920

The poem is Desiderata, although not sure of spelling. You can google it.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 10th November 2014 at 11:12
A.W.; It`s the first line of Max Ehrmann`s poem `Desiderata`.
