Hide 'n' Seek

" It's more interesting to have just a picture of a small detail,
 then you can dream all the rest around it. Because when you see 
the whole thing, what is there to imagine? " ~Dries Van Noten
.
I've been gathering inspiring quotes lately & would love to have them pinned up in my office.
errr...perhaps I've been inspired by my mom to decorate the wall? 
If you have any favorites, do share pretty please...

That's a very sexy shoe! How's this for a quote: "Lenore Nevermore is one of the most versatile bloggers that I have ever known." I have a blog award waiting for you, dear friend, so please come over and pick it up at your earliest convenience.

My favorite right now is: "Dwell in possibility..." by Emily Dickinson. A close second is: "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." Ghandi, of course!

love ya, cutie!

p.s. in college, a guy I dated told me that he sat behind me in class, noticing my bra strap barely visible every now and then, and had crazy fantasies about me, ha ha. That was such a funny thing to hear at the time, as I thought guys only noticed the most obvious kinds of seduction. I wasn't even trying!

I'm rather inspired by your wonderful watch-as-a-collar, what a cool idea, especially as we're always rushing around these days. So how about: "Don’t count every hour in the day, make every hour in the day count."

Perfect quote for this set of photos. I am loving it.

Quotes? My personal motto is "Trying is succeeding. If you didn't succeed, you didn't try."

the whisper draws more real attention than a scream, and these images are testaments to that morsel of knowing. as to the quotes, my forever favorite will always be from Calvin Coolidge of all people. "Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent". mmmm.. omnipotence. tasty.

"It's more interesting to have just a picture of a small detail,

Gorgeous! I would love a decorative chalk board to write inspirational quotes on!

Len♥reNeverM♥re said...

Mekkan,
Let's continue to imagine...

Isn't it all about dreaming? How boring will it be if everything were a certainty.
