Through Jonathan Livingston's Eyes

SINEM'S IN THE HOUSE.

***Update, 12.21: By popular demand, the site is Brougham Castle, in Cumbria. (Promise, I wasn't going to keep it a secret!) For more information on this site where a Roman fort stood before the Vieuxpont family built their own castle on the grounds, visit http://www.visitcumbria.com/pen/brougham.htm or the English Heritage website, http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/server/show/conProperty.142***

"A cloud does not know why it moves in such a direction and at such speed... It feels an impulsion... this is the place to go now. But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons."

Richard Bach, Jonathan Livingston Seagull  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonathan_Livingston_Seagull

 

Sometimes, it's all about looking at the world from a different perspective.

The solutions to life's riddles that twist and bend our minds out of shape, the answers to troubles that wake us up in sweat at three pm in the morning, the broad horizons hidden behind the boundaries we set to our lives, are all there, just an inch out of our reach. Sometimes all it takes is to lift our head up, defiant against the dark clouds of gloom, look beyond the clouds and see the sunshine, look through the clouds and see the silver lining, just to take a few steps back every now and again, to take a few steps forward, to take a few step up to see a whole new world open up, one which we never knew was there, or possible at all.

Sometimes all it takes to find your dreams, is to reach beyond the darkness of nightmares.

All it takes to realise them, to reach beyond the boundaries we set ourselves.

Today and for the rest of your life, climb up a tree, climb up a castle, climb up all those inhibitions, 'I can't do that..' 'I am not good enough...' 'I don't have the means to...', and take a new look at life through Jonathan Livingston's eyes. Find your purpose in life and go after it.

Now THAT'S a picture guaranteed to make me a little homesick; it's even got real hills in the background - something I don't see round here. Very peaceful, very English (so now you're going to tell me it's not England, I imagine. Ah well.)
Love the sight ..nice pic

Awesome words to live by!! Sometimes it can be so difficult to see the entire picture.

Beautiful scene! I must remember to come back and to see where your reveal this was taken.
Lovely shot Sin! Why didn't you take it as a landscape?

beautiful combo of the picture and the words. I like the picture in portrait as it leads the eye really well along the treeline then to the hills in the background and back again that way. Where were you when you too this, on a tower or something?
I knew it was your shot Sinem just by looking at the thumbnails. It looks like something you'd see in a tourism brochure. I'm loving the words Sinem, keep them coming smile

Thanks for the inspirational words to go with the photo. The photo really gives a feel of soaring. Makes me think I ought to re read JLS as I have copy lying around at home that keeps catching my eye. Maybe its a sign that you posted this today.

P.S. Say hi to Suby.

lovely landscape. nice shot.
I think you did very well capturing this shot. Personally, i would like to see some more contrast, but that maybe just me. You must have been really high to get this shot - hmmm.
Nice landscape but I donĀ“t like the composition 50% 50% fits not so good in my mind.
