Monday moments









"If you surrender completely to the moments as they pass, you live more richly those moments."

These images all speak to me differently this morning. Each duo has an essence I enjoy and crave. The quote above is from Anne Morrow Lindbergh, a very courageous, wise woman. Her words make me pause. I rush through my Mondays with such speed and determination and often
with a touch of resentfulness (how dare my weekends be so short :), I rarely take a moment to enjoy the moment. Funny thought. Which image do you find yourself drawn to today?

By the way, the wedding was a hoot :) They did an excellent job with all the clever, brightly colored details and I danced my little heart out! Amazing what a good dose of dancing can do for the soul!

Relish this Monday of Mondays my little Otter! I could live in the last pair of images :) But I could breathe in the 2nd to last.

Gorgeous post.

Oh, my, yes, I too could live in that last pair of images. To write in a room with that view and to sleep in a room with that soundscape! I am also very strongly drawn to the photo directly above the bedroom photo -- the books and the scene and the sitting in that window nook: it all looks so serene. Extra good set of images overall!

I love the insightful quote. And yes, Mondays are often a not-so-welcome day, being the start of the work week and end of the week-end. Cruel. Hehe.

Loved that photo with the girl sitting on her luggage. May I have permission to post it on my site? :)

i love them all, but at the moment i am drawn to the chair by the fireplace and the teacup items. my past week has been very CRAZY and i feel lost and sitting in that chair with my tea by a fire reading sounds like heaven.

love the quote. mondays are always a whirl at work and it fits perfectly with my day. breathe and relish.

Karen said...

What a wonderful quote -- I'm loving that last set of images. So peaceful and bright!

Rachel said...

That stack of tea cups is really pulling me this morning. I feel like I could just sit and stare at it for a while and be happy. Thanks for the reminder to slow down!

I really love visiting here, you remind me to stop, to savour and to delight in the little things. Those images are all magnificent and full of heart and soul.

So amazing - some days I feel like the girl in the middle of the road with her suitcase - just waiting for something fun to happen!

I love them all...but the second set has me today.

S.HOPtalk said...

The final two images are right up my alley. My how I would love to create such a retreat some day.

{Love the quote too!}

Mornin' mrs....

My fav's are the chair by the fireplace and the bedroom! Both look like they belong to a cozy, thatched roofed cottage with cabbage roses gazing in the windows. Keep dancing!

i sped through monday so fast it is now tuesday ;)! i love the second set, so soft and relaxing. i tend to be a worrier, so i'm often thinking about the next thing and not in the moment. but, i'm working on it. lovely quote.

dojski said...

Thanks, Julia, both for dropping by my blog and for graciously granting my request. =) Will definitely link back to your blog. =)

I love all of these, plus the quote. Perfect. The pictures that really called to me where the girl sitting on the suitcase on the gravel road and the bedroom scene. Hmmm - both have suitcases, which I love, but maybe it means I need to take a trip? Have I told you lately I love coming here to see what you have posted? I do.

Jude said...

I'm loving the third row, as well. Oh, to have suitcase in hand without a plan (kind of rhymes, doesn't it?). To just GO!

Thanks for my lovely card (arrived yesterday). I'll be sending one off to you soon. ♥

Jules said...

beautiful photos! i love your blog :)

bronwyn said...

The girl on the country road for sure! I also love the quote - I only just realized that it is Wednesday. It still feels like Monday to me! ;)

dolcechic said...
