The colors of my commute

So much darkness lately. In the news, in the world, in our lives. I try so very hard to keep my glass half-full. Some days, they are easier than others. Today is one of those days. I approached a gloomy, wet commute this morning, and I tried hard to find some lightness. An old Jewish proverb says:

A little bit of light pushes away a lot of darkness. A kleyn bisl fun likht pushiz avek a platz fun finsternish.

Let me share some of my light with you, in case you need it too.

Gold glitters, even in the mud. Gold sheint fun bloteh.

  1. It is hard to find the bright spots sometimes. But the rain can be beautiful and is exactly that in your photos. It sparkles. Thanks for sharing, Lisa. Have a good week.


  2. These images are stunning, love the idea of seeing the positives when it feels like the world is losing it’s spark. We just have to look around and see the colours! Thanks Lisa, this was beautiful #mg


  3. Its a shame that the weather can have such an effect on our mood, it looks a bit like that where I am today but I will take a note out of your book at look past it at the bright and colourful 🙂 #globalblogging


  4. What a beautiful proverb – and I love love love these pictures. I will be searching for the colour as I commute to work tomorrow morning (no doubt in the rain). Such a lovely way of looking at the world. Thanks for sharing with #DreamTeam Lisa xx


  5. Aaah, you managed to find some lovely splashes of colour in the dull and the rain…! I’m trying to do this now, whenever I go out-look for the beauty in something I would maybe ignore, or not be really looking enough to notice. I have noticed so much! I’m glad that you managed to cheer your commute up. x


    1. I too l ook at it differently now! I’m glad it had the same effect on you. Trying to find the bright spots in the darkness is always a bonus! Thanks for reading and stopping by! #FabFridayPost xo
