Thursday Thought – Content With Silence

Note: Each Thursday I post a little something to inspire us to finish the week strong. These Thursday Thoughts vary … a quote, poem, or inspirational video.  Congratulations, you made it over the hump and let’s finish the week together.

I look to Ansel Adams today for inspiration. His iconic photographs and unmatched printing technique continue to inspire me and many others. I read the quote I selected below and nod my head with understanding. I now see the wisdom of these words, where the meaning may have been lost on me years ago.

Each day we search for the right WORDS to focus and explain our world. IMAGES feed the story we share with others. Yet truth is elusive, and when words and images fail, focus is lost. Then true wisdom is found only in SILENCE.

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs.

When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”

– Ansel Adams
