Weekly Shoot and Quote Challenge: Alive

Ese has chosen ‘Alive’ as our prompt this week…

I couldn’t find a quote that I could put an image to until I found this one, and an image from my travels in Tuscany, Italy fit nicely:

“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.”

Eleonora Duse

  4. Very well chosen photo for the theme – perfect together with the quote… 🙂
