If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down but the staying down.

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

new blog

I've started a new blog...

In the spirit of some of my favourite photography sites, I have decided to post [hopefully] daily diptychs (two images) and 30 words or less.

Please join me at a time for habit.


Rest is not idleness, and to lie
sometimes on the grass on a summer
day listening to the murmur of water,
or watching the clouds float across
the sky, is hardly a waste of time.

What I must do first of all is be faithful. If I believe that the first commandment is to love God with my whole heart, mind, and soul, then I should at least be able to spend one hour a day with nobody else but God. The question as to whether it is helpful, useful, practical, or fruitful is completely irrelevant, since the only reason to love is love itself. Everything else is secondary.

Henri Nouwen
