It’s a BIG world out there

View of Loch Lomond along the West Highland Way. Another hiker happened to climb to the top of the next hill just as I was about to descend Conic Hill.

A long walk

Click, click, click, the sticks

Rhythm of the path while walking

Lost yet found in thought

I walk…

Click, click, click… walking sticks

The rhythm of the path and breath

Lost yet found in thought

Floating through life

Same… but different.

We each walk our own paths in life with a mixture of purpose, pleasure and pain. It seems as though we all “float” along in our journey with each step a temporary moment in time. Both images were captured on the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain. The two hikers are passing through while the floating image is farm woman in Galicia.  As I write this, I’m thinking I should reverse these images. Hmmm…?

Acceptance…

It has taken me quite a while to come up with the very first post for our new website RJMeyerArts.  As I reflect upon my life I have found that it has been a long and winding road (to quote the Beatles). Mistakes, I’ve had a few...  (Thanks, Frank Sinatra) well, probably quite a few. But, hey, mistakes are there for a purpose, and we just need to make the best of them.  Hence, the need for acceptance.  Acceptance of our own particular stage in life.  Acceptance of doing whatever we can with our God-given talents.  Acceptance of the fact that we are here for a purpose.

2013Camino-1030468rbgblend5dmveTX2frThe above blend of images from Cruz de Ferro in northern Spain along the Camino de Santiago, depicts a pilgrim with her own thoughts and reflections. It’s all of a personal nature, as is life. Life is a journey and has its mountains, valleys and “bumps in the road” of various kinds. You just keep moving forward.  (Click on the links above for more information and history)

No matter what happens, I sincerely hope we can all enjoy the view as we move forward with RJMeyerArts.
