"The woman who follows
the crowd will usually go
no further than the crowd.
The woman who walks alone
is likely to find herself in places
no one has ever been before."
~Albert Einstein

The woman that walks alone better bring a camera because no one is going believe her! LOL! Cute post.

I do love to walk alone. It's my time to dream, think, not think, stress, release stress.... love this!

Sares said...

Smart guy that Albert! I got your comment you have been having a hard time visiting and leaving a comment. I was wondering if it was a falling snow widget I had on there. It has since been removed so I hope you'll come by and see if you can get through. Have a good evening!

It's me said...

I walk alone today......xxx

Love this! Reminds me of one of my favorite pictures my daughters gave me; it's a black and white photo of them, taken in New York, by themselves, in the rain and they're standing under umbrellas! It so reminds me of how independent they are! Hugs, Pam

Wonderful quote. So true. I've always marched to the beat of my own drummer. An individualist through and through. I have been driving a porcelain bus, battling the flu and losing this week. So-oo sick. Feel horrible. I'll be back again to comment, when i'm feeling better. take care.

Susie Swanson said...

Such a true quote.. Thank you for your kind and nice words on mine.. Yes I lost a brother in law this past weekend.. actually he was my husband's sister's husband .. he died of a massive heart attack unexpectedly.. thank you so much for your prayers..May God Bless.. Susie

In Stillness and Simplicity said...

Lh, Sheri, you say I made you smile while all along you always make me smile, especially with this PERFECT quote today (DON'T I KNOW IT), and ALWAYS with your music. I know I've told you a zillion times, but your music is one of the few I turn mine down for. Keep smiling, lovely Sheri...and Jess...and Nel. :)
Enjoy your weekend!

In Stillness and Simplicity said...

That first word is OH, by the way. See what I get when I attempt to close my eyes and listen to the music as I type. ;)

Glamour Drops said...

A beautiful and wise quote from a most astonishing man. And the perfect picture to accompany it - especially dramatic in black and white. Thank you for your lovely message the other day and for discovering my blog. Enjoying meandering around your own lovely one. Have a gorgeous weekend!
