monday night sunset

I took a walk out at Fumee tonight and then stopped at the Lake Antoine boat landing for pics of the sunset.  The first pic is from Fumee on my walk Saturday morning.  The next one is from my walk tonight.  The rest are from the boat landing.

Lake Antione Sunset

I took this shot without realizing that my flash was on.   I think this one turned out kinda cool.  I’ll have to try this more often.

november 21 sunset

This was the sunset tonight.  I wish I had the chance to take pics from the top of Millie Hill.  It would have been a much better view.

But as for me, I will always have hope;

I will praise you more and more.

true happiness

True happiness is to rest satisfied with what we have.

True happiness is to understand our duties toward God and man, to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future; not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears, but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is abundantly sufficient; for he that is so wants nothing.  The great blessings of mankind are within us, and within our reach; but we shut our eyes and, like people in the dark, fall foul of the very thing we search for without finding it.  tranquility is a certain equality of mind which no condition of fortune can either exalt or depress.

There must be sound mind to make a happy man; there must be constancy in all conditions, a care for the things of this world but without anxiety; and such an indifference to the bounties of fortune that either with them or without them we may live content.  True joy is serene.  The seat of it is within, and there is no cheerfulness like the resolution of a brave mind that has fortune under its feet.  It is an invincible greatness of mind not to be elevated or dejected with good or ill fortune.  A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it be, without wishing for what he has not.

~Lucius Annaeus Seneca~
