Hope & Healing Through Photography and Poetic Expression


“Wishing is something the heart invented to launch our
sleeping desires into conscious awareness;
Only from there, may they
 be fulfilled.”

  2. Robyn, I love the new, spring picture of you! Also, I always get excited if I see that the quote is by you – and this one is so good and I adore the photograph! Juliex

    • Thank you so much Julie! Wasn’t real sure on the new header (sun was in my eyes, and wasn’t feeling much like a cover model that day 😉 )
      So wonderful that you look forward to my original quotes. Sometimes they are tougher to write than others. This one took a bit. The image of a wishing well, really made me ponder about what personal “wishing” truly is all about. Kind of forces us to acknowledge and clarify to ourselves what it is we are actually wanting/needing in any given moment. It seems prayer is similar but adds the element of faith in a higher power.

      Ok so how on earth did these blog posts become such philosophical, thought provoking exercises for me??! I was just planning to post photos back in January !!!

      You’re a gem Julie ~ xo RL

    • Wow… thank you so much for such sparkling words today David (love when you poetic magic wand over my photos 😉 ) I ‘m so glad you enjoyed the post. Never really considered what wishing wells were all about before!! Funny how these photos provoke unexpected thought sometimes ~ and creative endeavors too! Sending out generously scattered wishes for a wonderful day ahead for you my friend!

  5. So glad you liked the quote and photo Meryl. Was a tougher one…never thought much about what wishing wells are truly all about before! Very cool how the images can bring us places this way. Yes – agree the nostalgic effect was in order for this one. Takes us back a bit. Appreciate your comments always! RL

  6. What we focus on will manifest itself.

    • Yes – this one I work on constantly Jane. Have you done the Abraham work? Had a ‘healing” teacher pound this into my head over and over. Hard with severe physical pain not to focus on it though 😦 I’ll keep working on it. The photography and blogging helps a lot!

      • it is so important at this time to focus on what I want with work rather than what I don’t want. and yes, I have read Abraham’s books as well as get emails plus go to Unity (new thought) church. I am a slow learner but it is all good and I have seen the results of the positive thinking.Peace, Jane

      • Yes – I teach my kids this too…”get clear on what it is your wanting and then put your focus on just that…and little else” – pure positive energy etc.. It has served them well. Good luck with the work project, I know you are moving in the right direction!

  7. I love this…your words are so deep and thought provoking. They are so perfect for your wonderful photos

    • Oh thanks so much boldbeauty. I really appreciate that, and am so happy you are enjoying my blog!

  8. what a great find that wishing well,
    ya don’t see too many of those around anymore
    even though they should be a part of a standard backyard landscape …
    and yes, transforming wishes into reality can be the real challenge for sure …
    inspiring all around post indeed, thanks Robyn …:)

    • Thanks so much Jimi! I was excited to see it. Never thought much about them – but was fun to learn a bit more and ponder the concept of “wishing” 🙂

  9. A thought well expressed. The photo stirs some kind of nostalgia..

    June 7, 2012 at 8:02 PM

    • Thanks nightlake…. yes – I think it’s due to the sepia type color scheme. And we don’t see many wishing wells around these days 🙂

      June 7, 2012 at 8:30 PM

      • yes, it is because of that man:) Lol:)

        June 7, 2012 at 8:32 PM

    • 😉 You mean Tom Thumb I presume?? LOL!

      • The person who mischievously blew it with a dynamite 🙂

        June 7, 2012 at 8:39 PM

      • Oh yes – that guy!!! 🙂 🙂
