You'll Never Walk Alone ...



“When you walk through a storm hold your head up high
And don’t be afraid of the dark.
At the end of the storm is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark.
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Tho’ your dreams be tossed and blown.
Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone,
You’ll never, ever walk alone.

Walk on, walk on with hope in our heart
And you’ll never walk alone,
You’ll never, ever walk alone.”
              ~ “You’ll Never Walk Alone”
             ~show tune from the 1945 
Rodgers & Hammerstein musical “Carousel”
              ~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
                                                      ~ 1967

“At the end of the storm is a golden sky…” These lyrics from the beautiful and inspiring  “You’ll Never Walk Alone” came to mind when I saw this gorgeous sunset at the close of a stormy summer day in August at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

These Winter Days ...



“Stillness is the flower of winter,
all hope waits beneath a blanket of white.”
                                     ~ Unknown

The promise of springtime’s hope waits to bloom in the stillness under a blanket of white along my favorite path at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania during a light January snowfall.

Hope Is The Thing ...



“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without words –
And never stops at all."
               ~ “Hope Is The Thing With Feathers”
                            ~ Emily Dickinson
                                   ~ 1830-1886

A large white feather that has landed on a tree trunk billows in the breeze on a rare warm February day at Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania in this high contrast monochrome shot, a reminder that hope is always in the wind and appears where you may least expect it.
