Works of Wisdom For Thanksgiving & A Lesson We Can Learn From Mother Nature

Happy Thanksgiving - and thank you for joining all the photo fun and photo learning here on my blog over the past six months or so.

And thanks for signing up for the new Digital Photo Experience podcast (co-host is Juan A. Pons), coming December 1st - or sooner if you can find us on iTunes :-)

You'll find lots to learn - and share - in both places in the future!

The Digital Photo Experience has a talented editorial team - which will be announced on Dec. 1st. The team - covering photography, video, iPhones, computers, industry news, etc. - reminds me of a favorite expression that applies to our lives and even to some species of animals - as illustrated by this photograph, which I took in Kenya. See! We can learn a lot from Mother Nature.

The expression:

The path to greatness is along with others.
Baltasar Gracion

That's a good thought to keep in mind if you want your business to grow - no matter what your business.

That expression is from an inspiration book I am working on. Here are a few quotes from that project. Enjoy - and Happy Holidays!


You don't drown by falling in water; you only drown if you stay there.
Zig Ziglar

Fear an ignorant man more than a lion.
Turkish Proverb

You never really know your friends from your enemies until the ice breaks.
Eskimo proverb

Sometimes your only available transportation is a leap of faith.
Margaret Shepard

A tortoise travels only when it sticks out its neck.
Chinese proverb

Happy Thanksgiving Sir,

I am Thankful for you and the other pros who share with us through their blogs. Your message is always positive & upbeat. A great way to start or end the day.

I agree with Dave's comments, Rick. Your messages are always instructional and uplifting, which is something we all need in this crazy world.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. See you in a couple of weeks.

I love Rick's tweets, and blog. And don't forget his sense of humor-that's always a huge plus in my book!
(I wrote an article once titled, "Is your photography an orgasmic experience?")

Good luck on your new project on iTunes!
