Silent Sunday - Purpose


"I don't think life is absurd.  
I think we are all here for a huge purpose.  
I think we shrink from the immensity of the purpose we are here for."

Norman Mailer

I think we are here for a purpose too...just need to spend less time figuring it out...and more time living it.

I still can't get over the snow, it's beautiful to see it...but knowing it's going to stay is hard.

So I am finding it hard to focus on the quote today.

Is it really cold?

Certainly looks cold.
And bleak.
And the cold and bleakness will be here soon enough.

Betty: It's all a bit of a mystery, isn't it?

Jen: We got snow, but it doesn't really accumulate because the wind blows it away. The temperatures feel much colder than they are, because of the wind. Lately, we've been getting a lot of ice fog and freezing rain.

June: It's definitely cold, but knowing I have a warm house I can cozy up inside of, helps a lot.

Oh, I think this is gorgeous. And it's nice to be reminded that Mailer wasn't always a talk show clown -- the man could write.

Pretty pic but makes me shive with cold. Life isnt absurd so much as people make it that way.

Karin: He certainly has a way with words here.

Christina: Brings to mind the Theatre of the Absurd.

Beautiful picture, lovely words... I believe we are all here for a purpose! Thanks for stopping by my blog, always nice to have visitors! Cheers.

A Saskatchewan landscape to be sure! :)
Hope you are having a happy snow free week!

Heather: I believe we all have a purpose, as well. I'm not always sure what that is, though.

Catherine: I'm loving the respite from the snow, cold & wind we've been having for the past couple of days.

Beautiful photo Carolynn and a suitable accompaniment to Mr. Mailer's quote because there isn't anything much more immense than the Canadian prairies! Found my way to your blog through Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams and glad I did, looking forward to following your blog from here in B.C. Deb

This is the very thing I've been pondering the last couple weeks. I've been thinking about it so much that I'm stuck in place...don't know which way to turn....
