Towards dusk

 "I venerate old age; and I love not the man who can look without emotion upon the sunset of life, when the dusk of evening begins to gather over the watery eye, and the shadows of twilight grow broader and deeper upon the understanding."

(Henry Wadsworth Longfellow  - February 27, 1807 - March 24, 1882)


For some, the night is approaching. But who knows the day or the hour ? We are all only a breath away from eternity. Seek the LORD while He may be found ... (Isaiah 55:6)

Hi Rick, great to 'see' you again. I feel as though I could walk right into your photo and cross that bridge, but it's not time to do so just yet... there's too much work to be done first.

Not only do I admire your photo, you're a very wise man. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and helping me to stay humble.

Have a wonderful weekend!
