Imagine

Standard

December 18, 2010 marked the date of the first LadyBudd post.  It was short, and simply welcomed one and all to my Photo Blog!

I have over 10,000 photos – some good, some not so good and some really not so good.  I enjoy photography, especially the automatically point and snap, because it captures the essence of a moment in time that we want to remember.  Memories are like old photography paper – they fade and become mellow with time.   I leave the artistry to others, more proficient in the details of the art form.  Welcome to my moments.  Hopefully this will inspire you to leave your footprint in the “pixel sands” of time.

I held my breath as I tentatively pressed that first publish button. I tossed the words into the air of the blogosphere unknown and wondered, with cautious expectation, where they would land.  Nearly ten years later, I will enter a new decade surrounded by a marvelous community of kindred spirits.

Year 2020!  Another unknown.  But just imagine…

Imagine all the conversations. Imagine all the adventures.  Imagine all the possibilities.  Imagine all the knowledge that will be exchanged.  The future waits for us.  But today, let us continue pressing the “publish button” and celebrate our compassionate and life-affirming community.

With gratitude,

The things one wants to know…

“I wish life was not so short, he thought. Languages take such a time, and so do all the things one wants to know about.”
J. R. R. Tolkien

Knowledge is increasing exponentially – everyone agrees.  Whether wisdom is growing at the same rate, is another matter altogether.

We have so much to learn in so little time. It makes life both exciting and frustrating. Perhaps this dynamic duo may be what keeps us moving forward. We have no time for regrets….
