Life Is A Beautiful Ride

LIKE THE SIGN says, life IS a beautiful ride a lot of the time, if you're not riding from one catastrophe to another.

The graceful three-foot Buddha statue I recently photographed at the entrance to a store in Crescent Beach is a sign that the beauty without can be sought from within through meditation.

Whether the view is grand or bland, there is something poetic about every life. And you don't necessarily have to hop on a bicycle to discover something to move your senses.

Through the ups and downs, twists and turns ... beyond billowy clouds, wind-ruffled trees and rain splattered streets, it is clear to me ...

that a beautiful life is more than a pretty picture.

Hopes, fears and dreams, as if thought-pebbles tossed out to sea, can create beautiful and even not-so-beautiful ripples in reality.

  3. Your thoughts conveyed poetically in this post are convincing, Penelope. The third image looks the most symbolical among all your story-telling photos. I’ve enjoyed beautiful ride most of the time though there were times when I had to stop to see or examine carefully.
