To Land or Land

I love this photo, here in Myrtle Beach, as the clouds curved with the coast line. But, there, right in the middle of my picture, flies the stupid commercial plane! I hate these things. They are always flying about during tourist season, streaming along their banners of some sort. Usually for a tourist store, of which there are TONS (like they can’t find them)! Well, eventually it will land and so I use this photo as two fold, in the Tuesday Photo Challenge: Land. To land or land? Mac©

Fly Free, Into Solitude

The silence is deafening, full of loneliness, emptiness
I wish to go away, flying free to the sea
Listening to the waves, my soul is renewed in solitude©

Those Golden Hues

The light has begun its journey across the sky
First peeks the rays of a pink iridescent light
Then comes the hues of gold that make me cry
In perfection is the orange, as leaves the night

Here comes the sun peaking from its slumber
Kissing the sky gently, so beautifully infusing
A paint brush and pallet, colors I can’t number
Darkness to daylight this brilliance it is fusing©

Military Memorial

Near the site of the former Air Force Base in Myrtle Beach, SC, sits this memorial site for Veterans. Along with this, there are multiple fighter jets and a repurposed, metal statue created by a local artist. All sits on a beautiful wooded piece of land.

Share The Path

Shine your light along the way and help brighten someone’s day. A journey faced alone is never fun, but share the path and help someone. Our destinations are unknown, but there is no need to go it alone. So if you ever need a friend, on me you surely can depend. Because life’s too hard to face apart, please let me in and heal your heart.© ~Mac

Surrounding Of Solace

“The perpetual movement of the water, rolling from and to unknown destinations, the voices of the sea shield us from the raging furies and shrieking sounds of dystopian surroundings, creating an unwinding veil for stilled happiness, acquainting us with the gentle, cosmic rhythms of an extraneous world. They are a soothing relief and let us listen to the voices of our inner world. (“Voices of the sea” )” ~Erik Pevernagie

A Happy Place

I think everyone needs a space where they can go to rejuvenate from the things we deal with in life. Here is one of those retreats I get away to for times like these.

“In order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion.”~Albert Camus

Path To The Sky

“But the beauty is in the walking — we are betrayed by destinations.” ~Welsh poet Gwyn Thomas

This week the Daily Post would have us talk about the “Path.” As we are coming to the end of the year and 2017 just around the corner. Forcing us to look to the future perhaps and consider what lays ahead.

I will just share with you these photos I’ve taken that represent the limitless possibilities of the future. No, there is no path, for the “Sky is the limit” or perhaps even the sky holds no bounds. Such a wonderful image it makes to how wide open life is and how far we can go.

So, as I look to the journey ahead and recount the year gone by, I only know that there is so many ways that life can take me. I am excited, hesitant, full of anticipation and also self-doubt. But aren’t those all emotions we deal with? So, most of all I shall bolster my confidence, face the future head on and look to the sky.©

Blessings in the New Year my friends. ~Mac
