Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward

Tom the Turkey

“All life is an experiment.
The more experiments you make the better.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Do not go where the path may lead,
go instead where there is no path
and leave a trail.”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


A Tale of Agony

“Always do what you are afraid to do.”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


“Our greatest glory is not in never failing,
but in rising up every time we fail.”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Yesterday is not ours to recover,
but tomorrow is ours to win or lose.”

~ Lyndon B. Johnson

This is a response to the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. The theme this week is “Forward”.
I hope you enjoy my contribution. I thought about titling it “Words From Ralph” but I could not leave out the Lyndon Johnson quote.

  1. Hello Sage. For whatever reason your posts have not been showing up in my reader until just now. It’s goo to see more of your work.

    • Thanks for letting me know. I did a bit of “recycling” from the past, if you know what I mean, so I didn’t do a new post—just changed the date.
      This is my first new post in 2 weeks. I’m working on a couple of articles that are not ready and this Photo Challenge came together rather quickly.
      You are very perceptive—it’s nice to know someone is out there looking for me. 🙂 Thanks for all your visits and comments. There’s more to come.

  2. Wow! I really like the snow picture you got, and the tree picture, and the woods, and the seagull :)! We have a ton of seagulls here!

  3. Wonderful, inspiring post! Those are great photos, beautiful trees, birds, and the gorgeous ski shot!

    Dear SimplySage,
    It’s not lost on me that the motorcycle at the end is RED. Go for it! Forward!

  5. Fun pics and react quotes. But what is the first photo about? A skewered melon? ( I also had a picture of skewered produce as my entry this week…we might be the only two people who took that approach 🙂 )
    Greetings from the Chesapeake

    • The first pic kinda goes along with the first quotes about experiments. Whimsy and fun. That’s great we had similar pics. Will look at yours when I get a chance. Thanks for the visit and comments! Are you on the Chesapeake ship?

  6. Love the snowboarder!

    • Thanks. That would be my dear son. Taking photo’s kept me distracted from what was really taking place.
