Awaken the Glow of Happiness

When you have once seen the glow of happiness on the face of a beloved person, you know that a man can have no vocation but to awaken that light on the faces surrounding him. In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.
Albert Camus

The first snow of winter fell in Michigan today, which also happens to be the birthday of my favorite writer, Albert Camus.

Autumn is a Second Spring

Autumn is a second Spring, when every leaf is a flower.

At least it may be so in Michigan in October, when the last reminder of summer’s warmth lingers in the air.

Our First and Last Love

In the light, the earth remains our first and our last love. Our brothers and sisters are breathing under the same sky as we; justice is a living thing. Now is born that strange joy which helps one live and die, and which we shall never again postpone to a later time.
Albert Camus, The Rebel

And so it has been the last few years  in Michigan, when the abundant colors were mirrored in the myriad of lakes and streams–generously having given me material for Photo Challenges past.
