Doubt Can Serve You Well
“And your doubt can become a good quality if you train it. It must become knowing, it must become criticism. Ask it, whenever it wants to spoil something for you, why something is ugly, demand proofs from it, test it, and you will find it perhaps bewildered and embarrassed, perhaps also protesting. But don’t give in, insist on arguments, and act in this way, attentive and persistent, every single time, and the day will come when, instead of being a destroyer, it will become one of your best workers–perhaps the most intelligent of all the ones that are building your life.”
~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
…perhaps the most intelligent of all the ones that are building your life
Yosemite Valley on March 7, 2016
Hi guys! I’ve got a ton of updates and a bunch of stuff I’ve wanted to blog about, but that will all just have to wait due to unreliable WiFi and time constraints. In the meantime here is a shot of Yosemite Valley I took yesterday, 100% unretouched.
I sure do love this place 🙂
Beautiful. I hope to see this when I get out to Cali in April!
I hope so too! I know you will not be disappointed!
Yes you do. But what’s not to like about Yosemite?
There is nothing, nada, zilch, zero, to not like about Yosemite. And I know you know this as much or even more so than I do, Malcolm 🙂
Absolutely gorgeous photo! My favorite place on earth. Thanks for sharing, Tahira!! 🙂
Thanks, Kelly! I had the perfect weather conditions for this shot. And my pleasure – I’m staying for good, so there will be plenty more I shall be sharing 🙂
Staying for good?! Lucky you! What are your plans? Very exciting to hear. 🙂
Yes!! I bought a house in Arnold! To my north is Tahoe and to my south it’s Yosemite. I’m still going to travel nurse but Arnold will be my ground zero. I’m officially becoming a Northern Californian 🙂
Congratulations, Tahira!! What a perfect location for you — surrounded by the beauty and energy of nature and the mountains! I can’t wait to follow along on your adventures. Happy Earth Day! 🙂
Fantastic shot! I’ve been sicker than I can remember with the mother of all nasty colds. First time I’ve managed to sit up at the ‘puter for a few minutes. 😦
Oh no, hope you’re feeling better. There’s been a horrible bug going around here as well. Thankfully it’s kept away from me.
And thank you, my friend. This shot just makes me smile – I’m glad others can enjoy it as well.
Great shot anyway! We do not run away…we will be here waiting. Take it easy.
Thank you it’s appreciated, Leya. And indeed, we do not run away.
