According to Buddha

One must never give up hope of becoming better. A person is old only when he refuses to make the effort to change. That stagnant state is the only “old age” I recognize.

it shouldn’t hurt me to be free
it’s what i really need
to pull myself together
but if it’s so good being free
would you mind telling me
why i don’t know what to do with myself


Make-A-Wish®Rope for Hope Toronto  ~ June 2017


  1. Excellent.

  2. One word : Woah !

    • I can’t imagine doing it…but perhaps a thought to try 😳😀 compose a wonderful day hedy 😀 thanks for your comment!

  3. Fabulous set and words!

  4. What a great idea. It would be so fun to try this. And for a good cause. You captured it well, Hedy. Have a great week. Cheers

    • you have buildings in Boston you go for it Chris 😀 😀 but nope i’m staying on the ground…i’ll photograph 😀 cheers!

  5. Great documentation of the event. I suppose they’re pulling themselves together….and feeling pretty free….and at least for a time, they knew what to do with themselves.

    • well free…i’d be so scared…just looking my heart beat faster…the ballerina woman was so cautious i was relieved when she was on the ground…although it looked safe…it’s rope…and i’m not fond of heights…i think many do this as a regular fund raiser…and yes Lynn it has that team spirit feeling…thanks for your comments…smiles 😀

  6. Hope? “You can’t eat hope.” A Canadian musician… NY. 🙂

    • oh well these days with all the politics on/about food…i’m eating air 😉 yes i’ve enjoyed Emiliana Torrini’s works…talented indeed 😀

      • I’m not sure who that is… But, during the depths of the recession Neil Young challenged Obama’s thoughts about hope by, writing a lyric that said, “Hope? You can’
        t eat hope.”

  7. Wow, interesting pictures.

    • thank you Robert…i’ve not seen it before…it was new to me 😀 always fun when one wanders urban areas….smiles hedy 😀

  8. Wow–very cool and well captured in your pictures–and brave people going up there! It looks like someone was wearing wings as they climbed–cute! 🙂
    I like the quote too–I can’t imagine not wanting to find ways to become better–I guess that’s a good sign! 🙂 Thank you for sharing!

    • my father taught me that…can always be better…in a self caring way…an ethic of care…it’s a challenge i’m not sure i could do it…at least not yet! oh these summer days i’ve so enjoyed and now the healing rains…we’ll connect soon Raven Wolfe 🙂 smiles!

  9. I will never stagnate, have a wonderful week Hedy

  10. This is so not me. I can’t even watch Spider-Man! Maybe I’d better go listen to the song. Your last post took me two hours to get back from YouTube. 😉

    Peace and love (as we used to say). 🙂

    • oh not me either Robert…just photographing i took breaths…i can’t even imagine…and yes that YouTube i’ve been on Estas Tonne trip 😀 …peace and love back at you! have a musical day ~ smiles hedy 😀

  11. The first picture is mesmerizing. Short shadows. Determination. People placed in space like figurines in a strange upward game. 🙂

    • that you Peter i appreciate your comment…i thought of little ants…and yes the strange upward game…i like that thought…thank you 😀 have a joyful day ~ smiles hedy

  12. looks like fun

  13. wow, thrilling captures. You are at the right time at the right place. smiles over the pond 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • 😀 TO is a vibrant city with a lot of ‘things’ ’causes’ ‘protests’ to see…it is unlike etown…although we have moments…and many summer events…smiles over the pond smiles and sunshine blow quickly over the pond! have a fun day Markus 😀

  14. I don’t know if I would try rappelling off buildings, but I would continue to
    do others things that spark my interest and imagination.
    Have a most peaceful and wondrous day Hedy

    • i was impressed,,,i feel daring for some things heights on edges of walls or mountains not so much…i created a relief pause with yoga and big walk…always feels good no matter what…smiles and hugs Eddie 😀
