“We choose our next world through what we learn in this one.

The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in somebody else’s cloud. Somebody who may not look like you.

This last photo reminds me of some creature, but I just can’t put my finger on it! I trust you will enjoy!
I tend to view the world from behind my lens, framing things as they come into view. How do you view your world? What is beyond that window you are looking through? Windows can be found in many shapes, sizes and forms. It is what we do when we look through those windows that helps us stand apart and make a difference! J.H.Hilton
