That I like quotes is obviously no secret. I often use them when I myself cannot find the words. I don’t want to be anonymous but my blog isn’t intended as a diary, although I sometimes create posts about my everyday life. Still, publishing pictures without a single word reveals a certain personality of the person who took them.

Ibland liksom hejdar sig tiden ett slag
och något oväntat sker.
Världen förändrar sig varje dag,
men ibland blir den aldrig densamma mer
– ALF HENRIKSSON –

Den här dikten av Alf Henriksson har funnits i mitt inre under många många år. Plockar fram den ibland och påminner mig själv om att livet jag lever idag inte är en självklarhet imorgon. Försöker att inte ta allt för givet och skänker mina varmaste tankar till de som inte har det så lätt i vardagens verklighet vare sig
det gäller ensamhet, sjukdom, handikapp, fattigdom, sorg eller saknad.

Det förflutna finns i våra minnen. Det närvarande finns i våra sinnen. Framtiden finns i våra visioner.”
