Oregon Clouds and Positive Thoughts

"Tell me not in mournful numbers, that life is but an empty dream!  For the soul is dead that slumbers, and things are not what they seem.

Life is real! Life is earnest! And the grave is not it's goal; dust thou art, to dust returnest, was not spoken of the soul.Evening Sky-by Cat Zwicker

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not enjoyment, and not sorrow, is our destined end or way; but to act, that each tomorrow finds us farther than today."

 

Sw 75th Mt. Bachelor View

"...Let us then be up and doing, with heart for any fate; still achieving, still pursuing, learn to labor and to wait."

(Excerpts from "A Psalm of Life," by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 1807-1882; the complete text is subject to Public Domain in the United States.)

Paddy, Good question. I think I was not paying attention...end of the day at the office, grabbed my partner's dog so she could head to Maui and then had to go meet hubby at one of his work events.... Needless to say, I rushed!

I love the way you mixed the poetry of Longfellow with excellent examples of God's work in Central Oregon. Thanks for the inspirational post.

Fred- Sometimes the classics are just that! The whole poem is incredible, but certainly not looking to put it here!

Cat - very beautiful photographs and welcome to the group, you are going to really like it here. I lived in Portland for 5 years a long time ago and use to travel through Oregon and California.

Is that second photo of Broken Top with The Three Sisters just out of Bend Oregon?

Robert - Actually the second photo is Mt. Bachelor with the tail of Broken Top to the right. I took the photo standing on my 4-Rnr seat and leaning over the top of the car to mimic the view from a raised ground floor elevation as this is a builadable 10 acre parcel just 2 mi. south of Eagle Crest Resort in Redmond.  More pics from that parcel at http://activerain.com/blogsview/688463/28-1-SW-75th

Cat - Mount Bachelor, that was the one I was thinking of. I love the area that you live in so I am going to invite you to a group where you can post your listings or any listings. I always look over areas that interest me.

Gayle, 

  Thanks you Gayle. I've not been very active on AR for a while just dipping a toe back in and haven't gotten up to posting yet. Guess I just need to do it!
