good advice to duke ellington


"first, find the logical way,
and when you find it,
avoid it
and let your inner self
break through and guide you.
don't try to be anybody but yourself."

Now that's a lovely blue sky! Loving the single green tree against it.

The path less traveled is way more interesting. The photo matches the words beautifully.

I really love this photo and the word "solo" just makes it. The quote is wonderful too.

WOW! I do not know where I was or how in the world I missed this post! THAT PHOTO ROCKS!!!!! I dream of a photo like this, the tree in my dream being just a little bit rounder... But this one is Beyond what I have imagined! I Love Love Love trees... and the sky! Georgia you rocked this photo! Not sure if this tree is in a place you can easily return to, but you should get it again in the winter when it's lost all of its leaves...
