Just a Quote for Friday



"Each person has his own safe place - running, painting, swimming, fishing, weaving, gardening. The activity itself is less important than the act of drawing on your own resources."
~ Barbara Gordon

beautiful photo and love the quote - I've been thinking recently about activities that make me happy because they energise and those that make be happy because they calm

I always enjoy your quotes on a Friday, because they make me think. I wasn't quite sure what to do with last week's, but this one really resonates. After a conversation with my daughter last night and a week of not being able to get to my 'safe place'!

Deb, so true! I took me the longest time to figure that out what my "safe place" is and even longer to not care what other people think about what I chose as my "safe place." Gardening and creating beautiful garden spots are my "safe place."

Very true. I'm another who enjoys your Friday posts ~ you always find such apt words.

Oh that quote. Creating is naturally my safe place and it is so good to be home and to be able to do that. Thank you for lifting my spirits this evening.
