Find meaning






”Find meaning. Distinguish melancholy from sadness. 

Go out for a walk. It doesn’t have to be a romantic walk in the park, spring at its most spectacular moment, flowers and smells and outstanding poetical imagery smoothly transferring you into another world. 
It doesn’t have to be a walk during which you’ll have multiple life epiphanies and discover meanings no other brain ever managed to encounter. 

Do not be afraid of spending quality time by yourself. 
Find meaning or don’t find meaning but “steal” some time and give it freely and exclusively to your own self. 
Opt for privacy and solitude. That doesn’t make you antisocial or cause you to reject the rest of the world. 
But you need to breathe. And you need to be.”

Albert Camus

  4. Simple and true words coupled with gorgeous images. I always had Camus recommended, maybe this is a sign that I should start reading the Stranger? Walking is always good for me when I don't know what to do with my thoughts. Sometimes it does not answer my problems, but it gives me time for myself, which is something I really need sometimes.

  9. Nice words from Albert, I feel exactly the same way. Having time to myself is probably the only time where I can actually be myself.

    Ah, so you're the photographer behind the third image! I've seen it at Tumblr!

  10. I can totally relate to those words. We need to retreat once in a while to have a breather! It's definitely a trait of an introvert (I am one) to have some time alone...

    Thanks for sharing and beautiful photos!
