Encouraging Words

"Don't let life discourage you. Everyone who got where he is had to start where he was." Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Even though I don't agree with Emerson's theology (he was a Unitarian), he did say wise things from time to time.

I took this photo inside an Amish farmer's market looking out the window at two children on a wagon filled with boxes of produce. The market is in East Tennessee close to my parents' house. I had to sneak around and take pictures since the Amish are camera shy. That was fun!

I love this picture. Wish I could see it in a larger format.

He is one of my favourites... And the photo is fitting.
