pictures, words, food, adventures and once in a while, something random

While you can…

When we reflect upon what’s been said and done, most of the time it’s the unspoken words and undone deeds that haunt us.  Don’t wait “when you can“, just do it “while you can“. ~Christine Sternfels

  1. I love this photograph: it says so much with its emptiness.

    • Thank you Colline. Pictures do speak without words, sometimes it gets a point across better than a paragraph can.

  4. Interesting how a picture can mean different things to different people. When I viewed it I felt sadness. My parents have told me to do what I can now…. don’t wait until I get older because you never know what the future will bring. I felt sadness I think because my parents never got to do as much traveling as they wanted to when my Dad became ill. It is certainly a great caption and one to think about!

    • Sadness, emptiness, loneliness, regret… the emotions I wanted to evoke from this single shot, because they are what we are left with when it’s too late to say “I love you” to one who is gone… to miss out on a celebration for opportunities missed… the hug you never got to give because cancer took them away sooner than you wanted… so many words and actions that should have been… had we just done it. So, while you can…
