There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures. William Shakespeare
The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself. Friedrich Nietzsche
My husband and I came across this cute little guy (yes, I called him cute) on the beach, fortunately for him, he was pushed back into the ocean by a wave just a minute later, but I did get to take a few pictures of him first.
I took this with my Cannon down on Virginia Beach while on a mini vacation with my husband. It was really early in the morning, and the sun was just coming up. That’s my favorite time at the beach. It’s quiet and peaceful before the crowds roll in. Like the calm before the storm.
