My Own Drum

Stand Tall

Say it as it is. No need to hide the truth, to deny the painful journey made nor to dwell in the experience. But move on in you life. Share with others.

Stand tall and feel proud. —Author unknown

I had a great little walk today and was able to take quite a few interesting photos. I’ll be back later to share more.

As a side note… I thought of many fellow bloggers when I found the above quote about honesty. Share your story and your ups & downs. Be honest, be brave…

… and STAND TALL.
