Albert Camus – Invincible Summer

Quote - albert camus - invincible summer

I’ve always enjoyed this quote by Albert Camus about the invincible summer we hold within our hearts. It seemed to fit this grumpy statue of St. Francis that I discovered one snowy day when walking in the Village of Oak Creek.

Sunset in Sedona

What better way to spend an afternoon than with Annie Dillard and the clouds playing peek-a-boo among the red rocks in Sedona!

When I find my mind tracing the same tired circles looking for different results, sometimes a walk helps. It grounds me, literally, with each step my feet make on the earth. I find new energy, new presence, and a new faith in the rightness of what I am doing in the world.

Perfect moments can be had

A life is like a garden.
Perfect moments can be had,
but not preserved, except in memory.
