Day 94 –

Err ya, if you think the picture is strange you should’ve seen what happened after it! Anyway bit random but it was one of the only pics I took all day so it goes into the blog. Was it a strange day to go with the picture, probably! But it can be good to do stuff out of routine I think.

Quotes:

“The function of the imagination is not to make strange things settled, so much as to make settled things strange” – G. K. Chesterton

“I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers” – Kahlil Gibran

“Taken out of context I must seem so strange” – Ani Difranco

“Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of others…for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built upon the labors of people, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received” – Albert Einstein

“Strange how a teapot can represent at the same time, the comforts of solitude and the pleasures of company” – Zen Haiku

Isn’t it weird.
Isn’t it strange.
Even though we’re just two strangers on this runaway train
We’re both trying to find a place in the sun
We’ve lived in the shadows, but doesn’t everyone
Isn’t it strange how we all feel a little bit weird sometimes
– Hanson
