3BeeutifulThings:Wane, Wonder and Wisdom


The last bloom…

Wane:  to approach an end. Today’s pictures were taken yesterday at Ladew Gardens.  As we approach the end of summer, it’s nice to reflect on how far we have come and dream of the endless possibilities ahead. I’m including one of my favorite quotes for you today, from The Great Gatsby.  I hope you will enjoy each day with wonder and wisdom.

Happy Labor Day – be safe.

“And as I sat there, brooding on the old, unknown world, I thought of Gatsby’s wonder when he first picked out Daisy’s light at the end of his dock. He had come such a long way to this blue lawn, and his dream must have seemed so close he could hardly fail to grasp it. But what he did not know was that it was already behind him, somewhere in the vast obscurity beyond the city, where the dark fields of the republic rolled on under the night.”

– F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
