Posts from the Road - On Strength

Nobody can hurt me without my permission. - Mahatma Gandhi Shallow men believe in luck. Strong men believe in cause and effect. - Ralph Waldo Emerson We should ask God to increase our hope when it is small, awaken it when it is dormant, confirm it when it is wavering, strengthen it when it is weak, and raise it up when it is overthrown. -  John Calvin In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer. -  Albert Camus I hate to hear you talk about all women as if they were fine ladies instead of rational creatures. None of us want to be in calm waters. - Jane Austen, Pursuasion Now throw the switch and let us begin the battle for the planet. - The Brain, Pinkey and the Brain

Sobering thoughts, nice photos.

Nicely done. You always have the talent to make one think.

I 'do' attempt to do comedic voices, but have never mastered The Brain (Orson Welles-ish.)
Roomie claims they all sound like Walter Brennan, anyway...

A post of wisdom

I'm fairly sure now, that is Giant's Causeway in Antrim, Northern Ireland.

Columnar Basalt...

The picture with the Jane Austen quote looks like the Sheep Eater Cliffs area of Yellowstone Park. But could be any area of that type of volcanic formation.

First guess is Devil's Tower but the columns are too small - jointing too tight. Second guess is the columnar basalt along the Snake River in Idaho. I think it is too pale for the Cliffs of Mohr or the Hudson River Palisades, but I've only seen those in the rain.

To be strong without being hard is great gift. To be strong and still able to feel. This is what makes some people better than good. You are a special lady. Always look forward to visiting your blog.

Brigid said...

Monkeywranger - Yes! Good guesses everyone but you nailed it. That area is one of my favorite places in the whole world.

Mike in WA - particle board it is! The cammo netting was in the wash :-)

danontherock - enjoy any hunting that comes your way.
