A Place in the Sun

After the awful happenings in Paris yesterday, it seems somehow wrong to be celebrating such beautiful weather in our peaceful country.  But we are not being lulled into a false sense of security.  Terrorism and evil can hit anywhere at any time.  But for now, with our thoughts on those affected by the outrage in Paris, and as we switch off the radio and put aside the newspaper we will enjoy this lull in our busy lives in our place in the sun




When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

  1. I love the Gandhi quote.


  2. Perhaps Gandhi is right but the time until they fall is horrible. Speaking of sun I am giving up the Miami, Florida sun to move permanently to North Carolina next week. Thanks visit my blog.


  3. Whatever the evil we visit on one another on this planet, we need to always remember the days of sunshine, the places of respite. Thank you for reminding us of this do beautifully


    • Thank you for your comment Pat. Everyone wherever they live in the world is surely devastated and angry at the perpetrators of this evil. But we do have to remember that there are days of sunshine and peace too.

  4. I hope New Zealand remains a place in the sun and isn’t visited by the evils there fundamentalists trail behind them.

  5. Ghandi’s response in the face of violence was something which I think about a lot now


  6. It is sad that tragedy is always a possibility on the horizon. Although it may feel wrong to celebrate peace and sunshine, I think it would be more devastating to allow evil to cast a shadow on all of our days.


  7. I agree with Janna. If we let these acts keep us from living, they have won.


  8. I love this photo, Judith. Looks like such a beautiful, peaceful place. And what a good choice of words by Mahatma Gandhi!
    Best wishes, Judith.
