This is a wonderful post. How true is it that we can visualize so much in life, but at least for me I rarely look outside the box.

Thanks for the post!

Nancy said...

Great quotes and words to live by, I think. :)

Fuzzy Tales said...

All too true, those quotes.

It's easy for me to see small wonders as I walk, buds on flowers, etc., but not so easy to have a different vision of my life or the world. We do "see" things through our own filters/biases and it's hard to let go of them or shift our perspective enough to see other things, sometimes.

I LOVE, LOVE, Did I say LOVE this post -
"There are always flowers for those who want to see them.”

Great quotes Tracy.
I finally got a chance to read every one's blogs. This year my asthma is acting up more than usual. Also, since a couple of people left at work, it is hard to take time off.
Your comments on my blog entries are inspirations in themselves.
I admire your job as a special ed teacher. My niece has down syndrome and my brother is in mid fifties. He wants to make enough money to leave her a home. I do not have the heart to tell him that his daughter may not be able to take care of the house. She is now reaching the age of puberty and she is now very much withdrawn. When she was younger she was a little friendlier. I am trying to understand human mind and my own worries about myself possibly loosing memory are overshadowing my productivity. Take care.

Wonderful quotes with perfect pictures to illustrate. I do so miss my eyes of a child to see things as if for the first time.

Tracy Jo said...

Awesome quotes! So true...we miss so much when we don't pause to look around us. Literally and figuratively. :-) Beautiful post! Have a great day!

TexWisGirl said...

we do lose our ability to just see and believe, don't we?

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

I love these pictures and quotes, especially the last one. Vision is so much more than what we see right in front of our face, though often we miss that too!

Out on the prairie said...

very nice quotes and photos to compliment them

Tara Tyler said...

Donna K. Weaver said...

Maple Lane said...

I think because my mom lost her sight at a very early age, I really appreciate the beauty all around us! Wonderful visions, Tracy.

Jake and Terri said...

I love the last quote. We do often limit ourselves with our thinking or our expectations.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi There, I love the quote saying that "Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others." That is SO true--especially to us photographers... I see things so differently since I got serious about taking good photographs.

That last picture looks like the fishing pier at Ocean Isle Beach --where we will be soon!!!!! Yeah.
Hugs,
Betsy

Daisy said...

Very nice, Tracy. It's true we see what we choose to see. It is all about our perspective and whether we are looking for the good or looking for the bad. Neat photos! :)

farawayeyes said...

May I never be limited by 'narrowness of vision'.

jen@ living a full life said...

As always your post was a vision for my eyes :)to behold!

Beth Zimmerman said...

I love the underside of piers! :) And I can so imagine fairies frolicking in the roots of that old tree!
