we too mayΒ 
begin again.”

  1. Looks like was taken on your trip to the city…sunrise or sunset? Hope it was fruitful…from your words it sounds hopeful…:)

    • Thanks Meryl~ yes correct ~ returning from NYC (sunset).
      Lots to consider, as always.
      And, like the sun, each day I begin again…

  2. It’s the words this time for me Robyn (although the colours in the photo are lovely).
    The thought that every tomorrow is a new beginning is a comfort but also an inspiration?
    Hope today is a good day

    • Thank you so much Wendy… lovely compliment, as you are a master of ‘words’ for sure πŸ™‚ Yes – it’s something to ponder ~ the notion that we parallel the sun in this way !!! So glad you enjoyed!

    I prefer nature almost always over city scape, but, once in a rare while, I’ll look over city scape as you capture here, and be in awe of the things people make too…love the inspiration of your words too. Hope this day finds you well. xo

    • Thanks so much Lady Day! Yes – I’m like you in that I’m much more inclined to be attracted to the natural world… This city scape caught me as it seemed such a blend with the sun setting so passionately over the buildings… which only seemed like a geometric silhouette at the time! So pleased you liked the post – and may your weekend be filled with joy!

  5. wonderful mixing of organic and non….Striking as always:))))

    • Wonderful comment David. Thank you — you are right on (as usual) as this is what took my attention – the contrast and blending of “organic and non”)…. So glad you liked ~ despite my detour from ‘the natural world’ ~ Sending you sunlight… πŸ™‚

      • I like to travel between both worlds:)

        June 2, 2012 at 5:02 PM

    • πŸ˜‰ Best of both then!

  6. Very pretty, Robyn…and I’ve always had the same sentiment, we don’t have to wait for New Years or some other special occasion to make changes, we can start the next day…or even the next moment.

    • Scott, thank you! Yes – it’s good to realize that in ANY moment we can begin again. Appreciate your thoughtful comment, and wishing you a wonderful day!

      June 2, 2012 at 2:23 PM

      • You are very welcome, Robyn…wishing the same for you, thank you. πŸ™‚

    Hi Robyn, great words and picture. Your eye captures the contrast between the man made straight lines flats and rectangles and the infinite beauty and complexity of the natural world ….you can truly “see”

    June 2, 2012 at 12:08 PM

    • Thank you kindly Bryan. Your comment is very thoughtful. And yes, this very much what I was feeling when I looked out into the sun when it began to set over the city skyline. The buildings were geometric in pattern, and the glowing sun was floating like a divine cylinder of energy in a glorious sky. Welcome, and thank you for visiting today~ RL

  8. Excellent contrast. Brilliant color. Wow. πŸ™‚ Sam

    • Thank you buckwheats! Yes — it was good timing for me to see this sunset after a day away from nature. So glad you liked the post! ~ Good thoughts your way ~~ RL

    great quote, i love it, beautiful sunset.. : )

  11. Those are true words Robyn–and thank goodness it is so! What a lovely picture too…and I’m not even a fan of cityscapes. It actually feels quite restful. πŸ™‚

    June 3, 2012 at 11:42 AM

    • Thanks Jeannie! I wasn’t really going to post this image because, like you cityscapes are typically appealing to me. There was some emotion associated with this shot (returning from a consult in NY regarding next steps for me medically)… and then when I focussed a lot of the sun setting, the words just sort of popped in my head ~ and of course a post was born then πŸ˜‰ Yes – restful to know that as the sun demonstrates, each day can be a new beginning for us too. So glad you enjoyed!

    you captured an amazing explosion of sunlight in the late afternoon sky – do you travel often?

    David in Maine USA

    June 3, 2012 at 4:47 PM

    • Thank you David in Maine! No not very often at all… I am actually a resident of NY and this was a medical consult trip into the the city for me…about 2.5 hours by car πŸ™‚

  13. Yes, there is something very freeing and comforting in your message, “[that we may begin again tomorrow]” I know I need my tomorrows-, and that even though being in the present is where I need to be most, there are times when knowing that I can wake up and begin again in the morning can be exactly what I need to heal. Thanks again! Blessings, Erin

    June 4, 2012 at 10:21 AM

    • So happy this resonated with you Erin. Thank you. I feel exactly the same way. Most times the goal is to be totally present in the moment, but it’s a comfort to know that when there is much struggle in that moment, tomorrow will greet us with open arms! Warmest wishes your way ~ RL

  14. Beautiful photo, beautiful words of wisdom…..

    June 8, 2012 at 2:15 PM

    • Thanks so much Celeste! Yes – helped me get through the moment at the time I was inspired to post that… Appreciate your comment very much~ and so happy to have you here πŸ™‚
