Keeping your soul alive



To know what you prefer instead of humbly saying Amen to what the world tells you you ought to prefer, is to have kept your soul alive.
~Robert Louis Stevenson
Scottish author (1850 - 1894)

Ah! Magnificent composition! How nice to read RLS. I used to have a book of prayers that he once wrote. Well, according to him, my soul is most definitely alive!

I love frozen waterfalls. Good photo. When it gets really cold here, Whatcom Falls freezes. Good quote, too. RTN said to me in 2001, "The only thing real about me is my soul."

This quote speaks to so many of us who want to be true to ourselves and our own vision while still walking, talking, and working in this world. Beautiful, Dawn, and the photo is nice and icy and blue and just gorgeous! Your photos and quotes each day are like a daily meditation.

Such a beautiful photo. Hard to imagine that it is a still shot, there is so much motion in it. It captures the chill too. Lovely.

thank you Rhonda and Robin. Your words touch me. And it was very chilly :)
