Thinking Outloud

If you value reading things on the Internet, then visit the blog! Quatrain ƒotographic was born here as a manifestation of the wandered, the wondered, and the found.


"Only one person in a thousand

knows the trick of really living in the present. Most of us spend fifty-nine minutes an hour living in the past, with regret for lost joys or shame for things badly done, or in a future which we either long for or dread. There is only one world; the world pressing against you at this minute. There is only one minute in which you are alive; this minute, here and now. The only way to live is by accepting each minute as an unrepeatable miracle. Which is exactly what it is: a miracle and unrepeatable.” — Storm Jameson
