I hope you’re well!
This is my second submission to the” Fuel Hope (Zündstoff Hoffnung)” Project. By the way, you can find out more and enter your own submissions here. I see a lot of beautiful, hopeful, work out there. Don’t be shy. The more hope, the better.
I’ve been thinking a lot about the word, “hope” lately, thanks to Petra ;-) I’m finding I have mixed feelings about the word but I will write more on that in my next submission.
I’m a hopeful person by nature but ooohhh, I’ve had my dark days. And at present, we are in some, dark, days. But we can’t let that darkness bring us to despair. We must hold on and lift up those that are stumbling, knowing better days are ahead.
Music – creating, playing and listening has always been a great source of hope for me and I’m sure for most of you. It can take you out of yourself and focus your spirit on the positive. Find those pieces of music that work for you and fuel your hope.
Be strong; Be brave; Honor your ancestors.
Hold the line !
Better fight for it! Because once it’s gone, it’s gone…
Though no thinking, feeling, human being wants war and its innumerable abuses, it seems humankind hasn’t evolved to that state of consciousness yet.
Thank You Vets, in the US and around the World for your service in protecting our freedom.
Happy Veterans’ Day !
Therefore you must always keep in mind that a path is only a path; if you feel you should not follow it, you must not stay with it under any conditions….
Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t, it is of no use. Both paths lead nowhere; but one has a heart, the other doesn’t. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it. The other will make you curse your life. One makes you strong; the other weakens you.

Happy Halloween !
I hope you’re all well!
I visited the Park in the summer, on one very hot and hazy day. It’s about 30 miles west of Boston. As you can see, it’s an extremely beautiful place with a multitude of things to do. I can’t believe I waited this long to visit.
I shot these images with a Canon 6D mkII and a Canon 20mm f2.8 lens.
Let’s take a stroll through.
Blackstone River and Canal Heritage State Park, Uxbridge, MA.
The Blackstone River features 1000 acres of natural park, filled with trails and historical sites. The park also has biking, horseback riding, canoe access, fishing, hunting, picnic areas and more.
A robin built her nest in my backyard this summer but I haven’t seen her since. Maybe this is only her vacation home. ;-)
I hope you’re all staying well, strong and most importantly, free ! lb
Hi All !
I hope you’re well!
It’s been in the 90s ( 95F / 35C) here in Boston recently and we had our street repaved; not exactly the highway. ;-)
God bless these people for the hard work they do in extreme conditions.
I thought this song appropriate…
