The Runaway Train of Love

in #photographylast year (edited)


Two of the most powerful emotions we own are love and anger. Love we understand far more than we understand the anger. Anger is like a runaway train that we cannot control, running willy-nilly throughout our life. Underneath anger is usually the true issue that is triggering our anger: hurt, fear, and frustration. I made a pact with myself, long ago and far away. Don’t let the sun go down and let me go to bed with anger in my heart. Let there be peace in that place, just for the moment.

You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Jim

Whether blanketed lavishly in color or exposed and unadorned, nature reveals her beauty all through the seasons. From light and bright to the rich hues that mark the transition to fall, whereas, her beauty goes to sleep, sleep, sleep.

And just as suddenly, you have to wonder if you have woken up to a dream.

Never let the joy fade, forget not what you’re doing, even the simplest things, making the most of every experience.

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under Heaven Eccl: 3


The amount of love you give is the amount you receive. I once drove from Connecticut to South Carolina just for a kiss. I have never regretted it.

When what should I see, but one that wasn't my own, dancing in the streets of life. Delight in the moment. Life is too short to do anything else.

Fall just feels different, you know? The air tastes a little crisper than it did last week. Shadows fall at a sharper angle. The sun is warm- but compassionate. The way those leaves rustle when a breeze picks up is one of the most soothing sounds in the world, and it takes my breath away to see entire acres of them glitter while the treetops sway in the breeze. I can feel the tides of change already. In life.

A fine layer of quiet lay undisturbed on this day. I finally understand life, as the clouds swirl above her head, her love so true, and how I still watch over her, yet she is gone too.

True love has no real end.

Flowers. There must always be flowers. This picture is dedicated to #ColorChallenge by @Kalemandra, who colors my world every day.

As the splendor of summer drains from our world, there is an unspoken inevitability that the Autumn will shower upon us - a unique flash of melancholy pleasure. And so it shall be...

And just like that, this post is done. Thank you for coming along with me, perusing life. Have a wonderful day. And never forget. Kindness counts.

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.

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"

I have to say that of all of my problems, anger is not one of them. Why life is so so short, why waste a moment on anger. That is the cool thing about you, you are always so full of happy and sunshine there is no room for anger. You can't fool us :)

Oh anyone that would make you drive around the block for a kiss must be foolish, they should be right there waiting at your door lol.

We all enjoy perusing life with you and thank you so much for showing us how kindness does count.

Hey @old-guy-photos

I'm an equal opportunity person. Do you think it is bad for me to go down there? I can say that it felt right at the time. Even to this day it does. :)

Glad you aren't my daddy! ;)

I am a happy person, I will admit that right upfront. Are there things that put me off or make me take a step back? Absolutely. I won't be a liar enough to say that I never get angry. Because then I would only be lying to myself.

Oh, yes. Kindness counts and now I will have to do something nice for you. So, thanks for stopping over and leaving your always awesome comments.

Have a great night!

What a great post, I have sitting dormant mostly in me a serious temper that got me in trouble when I was longer, and luckily I learned before I got out of my early 20s that Letting anger get to me and then my temper taking over was not a good thing, so now I try not to let anything get me angry and go with the flow :)

And I have to go one up on you

Connecticut to South Carolina just for a kiss

is pretty impressive, but I did fly from NY to Malaga Spain to meet someone I was chatting with online and had been for a quite a few weeks, that person Happenned ot be Lulu and here we are together now :)

What a nice read as I am about to get of work. It has been a long day and now it time to head home and be with family again. Must reminder that anger is for a moment love is for your life.

It happens to the best of us, nobody is immune. Although some are less afflicted with the emotion. Thanks for coming by @stever82!

Fall is here! And it makes me happy! I hope to get out and enjoy it a lot.

Focused anger can be a positive driver; I deal with that a little too often, alas. The flippant jerk in me would answer that beer is a great answer to calming anger. :) A more thoughtful approach would include some mindfulness and understanding. And fresh flowers of course!

Hehe! Yes! Flowers around!

Beer would be the short term solution, but, being a cheap date, I get silly after less than 2, so, I will just pack my anger in a box and ship it to someone who needs some.

Or become more mindful and understanding.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great night!

Because when I read you my beauty curls?
What beautiful words, although I have to translate them.
How much reason you never get in bed angry.
That lady is your mom?
I still have it, but it is no more than your body.
92 years are many and I'm glad to have your body still
Autumn I really like forests are full of colors.
A big kiss, honey

Yes, true love has no end and your every photography is heart touching of me.

Thought-provoking. I received a couple of angry outbursts recently because I spoke an unpleasant truth that the angry person didn't want to think about. Sometimes anger remains until a situation is resolved, and if it's not resolved, the anger keeps coming back, as if it's reminding us to face the situation and resolve it.
