“I can be changed by what happens to me. But…”

“I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.

Maya Angelou, Letter to My Daughter

inspirationsale“On a recent wilderness hike I found myself quite lost, cold and sensing a growing panic in my gut.

I sat to collect my wits and it was then that I noticed this remarkable tree. It had somehow grown through an immovable boulder in an effort to claim its own place, its own life.

I found it an inspiring reminder about how we respond to seemingly insurmountable obstacles. And this photograph and print is the result. – Douglas

until Monday morning alone in my apartment.
That’s how I refuel.”

“Will it be here that we shall find a place
which will not elude us, or which if it remains
does not exert on us a culpable attraction?

Or must we, leaning over the deck and
watching the shores glide by,
move forever onward?”

― André Gide, Urien’s Voyage

“Some of us aren’t meant to belong. Some of us have to turn the world upside down…”

 

“Some of us aren’t meant to belong.
Some of us have to turn the world upside down
and shake the hell out of it until we
make our own place in it.”
