On Being Important, or Not

in #photographylast year


Some people are born and become very important in this world. Some are created and turn out to be very special in this world. Many would argue that it is far better to be important than special, but I imagine when I come to the end of my days, I’m not going to be looking back to see how important I was, but rather, did I impact others in a positive way? Did I become someone special in the lives of others? Disclaimer here: Some of you may think I am asking you if I mean anything to you, but, in actuality, I am not talking about ME in particular, but in general. While I am happy that I mean something to some of you, this was more of a what about you, what about me - kind of thing.

It’s hard to accept as true, that summer days are numbered and few. Time lingers - for not a soul. I still hold on, I won’t let go. Then again, there is that Thursday thing going on too — as I roll over in clover.

Embracing the splendor of this day
letting the sun shine, one ray at a time
taking hold of my soul
then gently let it out
scattering a path of radiance and joy — letting the sun shine in.

Listen to that music in your heart, covering your soul with a blanket of delight. Oh, yes!

Hellooo, October! How are you??

Colour my World… Fall’s brightest colors are beginning to descend upon me…Oh, majesty!

My apologies for being absent all this week- as the internet has been out of order since Saturday, allowing only a few snippets of upvote and not allowing me to respond properly to #MarketFriday, which I am trying to do now, courtesty of Starbucks. My moments are not my own this week. Sad, but true. I hope all is well with each one of you. And hello, @NinaHaskins! and wow! I tagged her wrong, using only her first name. I wonder if she knows about the other? I just got overeducated this morning.


And just that quick, this show is over! I want to thank you all for following this through, eclectic and true, brought by me to you. Tag me and I will visit you too! Thank you!


Love is all around you!



¸.♥´¸.•♥¨) Let the sun shine in on your life
So the joy may touch your soul

I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

Oh you were certainly missed. I am positive that you have become both important and special in the lives of so many people. I happen to know how generous and caring you are and I spills out of you to the benefit of all that have the privilege of getting to know you. I know in a word you are a wonderful person and beautiful inside and out.

Funny thing is summer was here yesterday and fall is here today. Summer has been putting up a valiant effort at staying but it seems to be a losing battle. So glad you are back. We cannot afford to lose anyone, especially you.

Well, I am thinking we will get cooler weather here soon. Not cold, but, summer will be blowing away. I can feel it in the air, even though it was warm today.

As far as being missed? I am sure a few have noticed me not present, but, seriously, I am not a seriousl blogger on here, so the ripple isn't big. :) But, thanks for your vote of confidence.

It was nice to post again, as I sit smelling the aroma of Starbucks grande skinny latte. :)

Thanks for stopping by and saying hello!! ;) Have an awesome evening!

!tip

Such gorgeous warm and bright flower photos.
Now I am with you on I would much rather be considered special than important,
Or important as some may view it, and by that I meany I would much rather someone consider i was an important factor in their life that they seeing me as being Important if that makes sense

Now even though I said I prefer special pencils can of course have a double meaning, special inthe nice way as you mean, or as I am sure some whenI was younger called me special, meaning I was different from the norm and sometimes I handful, so my hope is that some people knew me s special even if in both ways LOL

Haha! I totally get it and yes! You are indeed special in so many ways! ;)

But, agreed, special is way better than important, in that context. Special does have a double meaning, but, of course, I only mean that in the best of ways. I hope you have been having a great week and that you have something awesome planned for the weekend... and yes! Walking the beack is one of those awesome moments that we take for granted, but, the truth is, many people don't have it available to them.

So, in that way, we are both lucky!

Have a wonderful Thurday!

!tip

I know you meant special in the nice way but I just let me mind take me where it wants when I am writing posts or in this case replying to comments :)

After working in the field for so many years and in most of the places I went no Beaches anywhere near I think that ales me appreciate them even more these days and count myself so lucky

This week is having its ups Nd downs but that makes life interesting

I hope your network is sorted out soon that ust be so frustrating

I can imagine you enlighten the Starbuck with your golden hair and your sparkling smile ! ^_^
I think I am not an important person (apart for my family), but I am undoubtedly special, and I think I feel that since birth : I do not want to be "important", in the "famous" meaning, I want to be me, the right and genuine me, and at 50 y.o now since two days,
I feel I have succeeded in that (even if it has no really end to discover and create who we really are...😉 and that's the joyful part of living life)

Hugs my wonderful friend and thanks for your bright flowery pictures and your presence ❤️

Oh, you are important in so many lives!! Ask anyone who comes into your aquaintence!

A belated happy birthday, my Barbara! ❤️@barbara-orenya

You are very special to me, first for being my friend and then pulling me into your French Touch site. Those were wonderful days! I love how you have opened up your world of art to so many people, showing off these delightful creatures everywhere I look. It brings a smile to my face when I see yet another one!

You are a one-of-a-kind person! There are no two ways about it! And I love you for it!

Bisous! Bisous!

Oh, Denise but you are appreciated. Special and important if you ask me. Your words here are so lovely and beautiful. They say the bee is the most important animal in the world. You are a little bit like a honeybee, nurturing the world as you feed your soul. And your pretty;) Sending you love:)

Oh, well, you may not love me when you see how I tagged you on one of Paul's posts, except, I forgot to put the foltz... I have no idea how I did it, but, I did. Caution! Do not click on that Pryde link or you will get more than shower shots!

Yikes!

@prydefoltz I linked it and poor @ninahaskin clicked on it, otherwise, I would be ignorant to the fact. Sorry! I don't even know who to aplogize to anymore!

But, thank you for such a heart-warming comment. You always leave the nicest words for me. Thank you for that.

Oh goodness. I do hope it wasn't me in the shower. If it was, I assure you that I have no recognition of cameras. LOL

Hahaha~ Oh, you just made my embarrassing situation funny. Thank you for that!

Being special in someone life and making a difference is the bottom line of importance and did you learn something when it comes to the end of your journey. I think that is what will put a smile on my face at the end.

That is how I see it also. If I can make any kind of difference in a persons' life, that will always make me smile.

Just like this comment did. Thank you for stopping by and saying hello and leaving those words behind! xo

Have a most fabulous day!

Some people are also "born important," or at least with the perception of importance, such as heir to thrones and such.

For the vast majority of us, we're important and, hopefully, special to our families and friends. That's good enough for me.

!tip

Amen. Sometimes important as being born into it, is not all that it is cracked up to be.

I would rather be the important person in someones life. So much more gratifying if you are not on an ego trip. :)

Of course, that was tongue in cheek. Not every person born into it is on an ego trip. It's all in the genes. :)

I wondered where you were this week, you certainly are special to many here, a little shining light on the blockchain! I know what you mean , it's like the story of the dash between our birth year and the year we pass on, hopefully that dash will have left something special behind! Hope your internet is sorted soon, it's so frustrating!

Posted using Partiko Android

Oh, you and me both!!! I cannot for the life of me to understand the problem, besides a dash of incompetence! With the internet, that is!

I guess everyone hopes they leave a little something of themselves behind. And thank you for your kind and thoughtful comments. Always.

Have an awesome weekend!

I agree special is better than important. I think that most of us would rather have a positive impact on someone than to be 'in power' so to speak.

Your pictures are always amazing, the ones in this post are out of this world. I don't know what's different, my mood or something these all have a very warm feel.

we all have a importance its always great to seize the moment :)

Very lovely post, special Lady :-) Thank you for the wonderful flowers to brighten my day!

You know we all miss you when we don't hear from you but we also understand that the moments aren't always ours we have other important matters to attend to but it's always nice to see you back in full color.

Have a great week ahead my friend...God Bless 🌝

@dswigle

This has been sitting open for days. A pertinent question. I agree with you:
important is completely over rated. I would rather be seen as special. Especially be people who are special to me. Thank you for a thought provoking post. As always
