Beautiful, healing set of pictures.
As I wrote in a post a few weeks back, … ” life simply keeps on becoming.”
And, thank the gods-that-be for that ….

Thanks Nana Jo. Yes, it’s good that things just keep ticking over, and we don’t have much of a say in that…which is probably very handy!
It does indeed, and that is a beautifully illustrated thought.
Thanks Paul. Rocks and words: two things that go well together, don’t you think?
mmm lovely stone….are you getting out and bushwalking?
Hi Screamish. Though I am going bush every few days (well, just up the gorge really, along a footpath with handrails – not really that adventurous), these rocks are actually the wonderful things that are holding up this cliff-side gatekeeper’s cottage I’m currently living in.
I just hope they’re as strong as they look.

I had never read that quote, Nigel. Lovely. Lovely photos, too!
Hi SB, thanks for that. I think what I was so taken with was that someone like Frost, who’d achieved so much (a poet’s job is to go deep and strong and intense, surely) could only conclude that all he knows about life is that it goes on. It’s a great argument for just believing in the mystery of things, and that ultimately we end up knowing so little – in fact, basically nothing.

Thanks for dropping by, laroo! I love quotes, I really really do. It’s a kind of guilty pleasure.
