Just For Today



"Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we know all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?" Anne of Green Gables

Lucy Maud Montgomery, may have written the words for many of us it is Anne who said them. As we have so many Anne fans and it is her centenary, this was a nice quote to add to Sky Watch Friday where 100s of bloggers surprise us with their view of the horizon, all different but interesting their own way.








Believe – Just For Today An itty bitty book made up on ATCs, Moos, inchies, recycled prayer cards, postage stamps, postcards, and things.

Love the silhouette and how the light reflects on the water in this one!

Wonderful picture!!

paradise. I love this shot.

I too lived through the Blizzard of 78, while I was living up in Boston. It definitely gives you an appreciation for the powerful force of storms.

Definitely a better and much safer view from afar!

Thanks for the quote, almost 60 years ago, being washed up on an english speaking shore after WW2, I learned my English with Anne, it took a while before I could really understand the language but within six months I could appreciate Anne and her love thereof. Thank you.
