Of Interest – "Licht Years" – 6/23/12

I’ve decided that once a week I’m going to start sharing my favorite blogs that I follow from other bloggers. There are a number of incredibly wonderful blogs out there and they provide a wealth of information. You’ll find a pattern in all the blogs I follow in that they are very visually stimulating. I find there has to be as much if not more photos in the blog to pacify my optical needs! Whenever possible I sign up to have the blog posts emailed to me so I don’t have to go hunt and check for the updates. It makes it so convenient to stay in touch!

6/22/12 “LICHT YEARS

As one person who lives in Massachusetts I can appreciate this blog. Susan lives in Massachusetts and many of her posts hit home. She has just started this new blog “Licht Years”  on WordPress and it is a work in progress. However you can still view her previous blog “Daily Life Stuff” on Blogger. Like me she includes tons of photographs, snippets of her life including her husband and son and much more. I enjoy following her posts as I love to see her interpretation of things. Susan is a mom, cook, classical music lover, arts advocate, reader, gardener, teacher, and appreciator of the little things in life.

The following is a post from her new blog. The post is entitled “Show of hands”. I absolutely love the pictures and the quotes/sayings Susan has included! Enjoy!

Hands calm us, feed us, and scratch our backs. They intimidate, bless, encourage, and stop us. They soothe and caress.
They draw our attention to the good and the bad, often suggesting exuberance or fear.

“Jump into the middle of things, get your hands dirty, fall flat on your face and then reach for the stars.”
~Ben Stein
“Our hands often reveal what we really think but do not say.
They can show a range of feelings and emotions from confusion and frustration
to joy, understanding, love, and compassion.”
~S. McCurry
