According to Buddha

Be bold and fear not.
It is fear that is the great cause of misery in this world.
It is fear that is the greatest of all superstitions.
It is fear that is the cause of our woes,
and it is fearlessness alone that brings heaven in a moment.

take a little walk to the edge of town
go across the tracks
where the viaduct looms
like a bird of doom
as it shifts and cracks
where secrets lie in the border fires
in the humming wires
hey man, you know

Little Italy, Edmonton Alberta ~ December 2018

  1. Beautiful reds and greens, Hedy. I like today’s quote. Have a wonderful day. Say warm. Cheers

  2. Great quote Hedy and a beautiful video (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – Red Right Hand)!!!

  3. Lovely, Hedy! Also an awesome piece by Nick Cave.

  4. This quote of Vivekananda made me think of the Bene Gesserit litany against fear (In Dune by Frank Herbert, 1965). The litany is as follows:
    I must not fear.
    Fear is the mind-killer.
    Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
    I will face my fear.
    I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
    And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
    Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
    Only I will remain.

    I suppose that all the red in your pictures refers to the Red Right Hand, an album that took its inspiration in the battle between good and bad as described in Paradise Lost by John Milton? Again; nicely open-ended puzzle.

    • where the fear has there is nothing…I appreciate that connection Urban…the red was in my hedy head gaze for our Friday foto walk…it was very fresh…it was a mitten walk…I’ve never read Milton’s twelve books…
      this is an interesting listen for me as a dyslexic…it will take a while…thanks again for the thoughtful comments Urban…

      ‘heavens and earth raised out of chaos’……

  5. With a touch of Barnett Newman 🙂 The reflexions in the last picture are great,

    • ahhhh yes I do like abstract expressionism…Newman classic ❤️ I guess I feeling the need some see the local spaces…but…it was very fresh…so I went for the red…the green made it fit the Little Italy district…yes the reflections also caught my eye…many red cars 😳…smiles from etown ~ hedy ✌️😊

  6. i like the last one.

  7. Here’s to being bold, Hedy – you exemplified it here! I just love that red. OK, and the green, too. All very energizing, which I think we need this time of year. How refreshing that you didn’t feel you had to mention the holiday. 😉 Have a great week!

  8. Green, white and red… Very subtle. And well done. 🙂

  9. Pure minimalism. Like the idea and the way you captured these images. Smiles to you, Hedy! Reinhold

  10. Hey Miss Hedy .. such a great post! Love the quote .. And those images .. so pleased you did your Friday foto walk 🙂👏

    • I always enjoy the outings…and being in a little group of foto friends is fun…I do try to photograph every day…and I also love the solo experience very much…thank you Miss Julie for your thoughtful comments…joy to you ❣️💫☺️
