Sharing some thoughts today 😊 life has a way of resetting our hearts & souls. Doesn’t it? But there are a few things that have remained constants in my life. Firstly, we can’t pick or choose with whom nor when we fall in love, these things just seem to happen on their own. Typically at the most inopportune times & when we least expect it 🤗 so love opens the door but there’s another factor in this thing that’ll keep those within your life & that’s comfort. Creating an environment of comfort doesn’t take much effort, but it does take; sincerity, understanding, unselfishness, care & last but not least, putting yourself in the shoes of another 👈 (that last part) easier said than done, trust me. Comfort could be conveyed in many ways, last is the gifting of material goods (but this also helps 😉) to me it’s as simple as holding another’s hand. Such a simple gesture but meaningful without measure. We hold the hand of a child for example, but as adults it’s no less as important. Holding “her” hand says: I got you. I’m here & not going anywhere. I got your back & there’s no other place in this world that I’d rather be. It’s a honor & privilege, so do it 😌 I have a motto pertaining to this: if you don’t hold her hand throughout life, someone else will hold it for you. Hope this helps 1 other person today, take care & happy weekend!
~ nameless face ~ I thought about you a lot friendly stranger & today I'm posting this pic I took of you. I don't know you, yet it's been over a month since you approached me while we both took shelter under this tree. You had no fear & looked me in the eyes while chatting away. Your eyes filled with kindness. Your romantic language my Kryptonite. Next time kind old lady, I'm getting your name. Signed, a charmed Chicagoan ✌️ Thoughts & prayers to all the nameless faces in Mexico & in the Caribbean 💚
3 years ago...It has been about that long since my first conscious click of my camera to capture a similar scene, just because. It was time to payback my soul & I was ready. Wishing everyone happy photography, may it do for you what it has done for me 💛 (sunset was captured Tuesday evening in my beloved Chi)
When I was a younger man, I thought all I needed was a good bottle of cologne to conquer the world 😉 looks like the world found a way to conquer me, with beautiful scenes like this 🤗 Have a happy & blessed Sunday my friends 💛
