Kaleidoscope #638


If people refuse to look at you in a new light and they can only see you for what you were, only see you for the mistakes you’ve made, if they don’t realize that you are not your mistakes, then they have to go.
― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

 

 

 

Below is the original photo used to create this image. While taking an afternoon walk around Floyd, VA in the rain. Hanging baskets with a beautiful variety of flowers seemed to be outside every shop. I couldn’t resist these incredible purple and yellow pansies. No special lighting or retouching, just a snap from my smart phone.

The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.
― C. JoyBell C.

It was Mom’s favorite, so Mom, these flower-box kaleidoscopes are for you! No special lighting or retouching, just a snap from my smart phone.
