On the Horizon
Never have I found the limits of the photographic potential. Every horizon, upon being reached, reveals another beckoning in the distance. Always, I am on the threshold. ~W. Eugene Smith
It was November--the month of crimson sunsets, parting birds, deep, sad hymns of the sea, passionate wind-songs in the pines. ~L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
Smile the Clouds Away
Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.

Yet One Smile More
Yet one smile more, departing, distant sun!
Yet one rich smile, and we will try to bear
The piercing winter frost, and winds, and darkened air.
~William Cullen Bryant
“November is usually such a disagreeable month...as if the year had suddenly found out that she was growing old and could do nothing but weep and fret over it. This year is growing old gracefully...just like a stately old lady who knows she can be charming even with gray hair and wrinkles.”
~L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea

As the Sun Sets on Autumn
I love this poem by Stanley Horowitz:
"Winter is an etching,
spring a watercolor,
summer an oil painting
and autumn a mosaic of them all."
We're reaching the point now where the etching is emerging from the mosaic.
An Instant Out of Time
