Happiest Period in Life

"Probably the happiest period in life most frequently is in middle age, 
when the eager passions of youth are cooled, 
and the infirmities of age not yet begun;
 as we see that the shadows, 
which are at morning and evening so large, 
almost entirely disappear at midday." 
-Eleanor Roosevelt-

It's still a keyboard! :)
Sunny greetings from Málaga, Spain!
(after a couple of hard rainy days)

This perspective does suggest a keyboard with some plant resting on the top of the keyboard! Lovely!

Catherine said...

a very ethereal shadow shot - lovely....

Ralph said...

The shadows suggest musical notes dancing across the keys - fabulous!

Eleanor Roosevelt was such a wise woman. So many people think childhood or the teen years are the best...but I think Eleanor was correct. And I intend to stay middle aged for a long, long time. What do calendars know, eh?

Love your shadow!

Paula Scott said...

Love the quote and LOVE the image which is so aptly named!

Patti said...

I also love that quote. Like EG I also intend to stay middle-aged for a long time!

The shadows of the leaves seem to skip across the keyboard.

Joan said...

Love the quote. And a great shadow shot to go with it. :)

When I clicked to enter my link, I got a nasty popup with a downloaded .exe file!! Please have someone check this site for malware.

Lovely, lovely photo, and great name.
