Gailen Mapes62,568Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  A-C - 14 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes2014-04-14 10:20:051978410CC G+

Justin Hill22,601114 HDR Photographers :- Here's my second circle share for the weekend. I have two circles for photographers and this is my second which concentrates on those that indulge in HDR photography. Some in this circle use the technique all the time and others only once in a while. Each and every one of them is a great photographer in their own right which is why I added them and created this circle carefully over time. You won't see much overblown HDR here, they are all very good at what they do and their images prove it. Once again this circle was put together by me and all within it were hand picked due to my likes and preferences. If I have left you out then I am sorry but I simply cannot put everyone I see in a circle so i have been deliberately selective.  Please feel free to add them all to your own circles or pick your way through and select just a few. By all means share if you so wish. Enjoy...2013-10-13 20:19:15114202CC G+

I am sorting through them all at a rate of 100 people a day.Please add these people because it is a quality circle. I have visited everyone's site.Also, please share2013-09-13 23:50:1250053924CC G+
Promote Photography8,407THE FIRST 401 PROMOTED!!!!You have been chosen by +Promote Photography  because your work is very good and have to be promoted / shared.If you do not share this circle you will still be in it! But if you do share we will be thankful to you!Next share at 500If you like to be in it you can tag us #promotephotography there is no guaranty but it will help us found your work!Share if you like!  READ THIS NOTE BY +Rodney Campbell (well seen, thank you!)Note that I got an error when trying to add the Circle +Promote Photography  - not the usual domain restriction error where it still creates the circle but the one where it says it can't add one or more people and/or pages.Unfortunately it's +Alycia Miller  entry which is causing the error for me (and also for at least one other circle I'm aware of) - when I remove her from the circle before adding it adds fine. +Alycia Miller  is already in multiple of my circles so not a problem for me but others may not be able to add this circle. I can also see her account looks to have been Fubar'd by G+ at the moment (it's empty of posts)2013-09-01 10:58:4040113462113CC G+

Gerard van Schip14,940Earlier I shared the top 100 profiles in Japan according to +CircleCount . This is the same circle minus people that only post in Japanese. Interesting enough that still leaves 78 people.I guess the message there is post in English if you want to engage in a large audience. The top profiles that posted in Japanese only were pop stars so no big loss in my books ;) #japan   #english   #circleshare  2013-08-26 07:03:3678024CC G+

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.  ~Anne Bradstreet

I want to give you
on a cold rainy sunday
a sky filled with flowers
weaved in a carpet of dreams
May each dream bring you hope of a new day
where sadness melts like snow 
upon first ray of sunlight
and happiness is
not an illusion 
but a strength you feel
as you face life's challenge
with an unyielding faith 

May each flower from the sky
shines upon you
like little stars from a distant galaxy 
whispers to you
night is but the beginning of a new dawn

雨の冷たい土曜日に
空一杯の花々を
夢のカーペットで織り込んで
あなたにあげたい
それぞれの夢があなたに新しい一日の希望をもたらしますように悲しみが最初の日の光りに当たった雪のように溶けますように
そして幸せが幻想ではなく
あなたの感じる力強さでありますように
挫けることの無い信念を持って
あなたが人生の挑戦に立ち向かっているように

空からそれぞれの花が
あなたの上に輝きますように

Travel Journal 2014(日本語版は英語版の後に続きます)2014年旅行記
12, Feb 2014 from Tokyo to Marrakech 2月12日、東京からマラケシュへ

On Feb 12, I traveled from Tokyo via Paris to Marrakech, Morocco.  Since my flight arrived around 6 am in Paris and the flight to Morocco would not take off till  3 in the afternoon, I could spend a whole morning in Paris.  The first thing I did was to store my luggage at the airport and then took a city bus into Paris. The bus stopped at Opera, what a beautiful morning! Bonjour, my beloved city, Paris!  I have missed you for half a year! I jumped off the bus and happily started exploring Paris in a few hours.  To begin my morning, I stopped by a sidewalk cafe to have my morning cappucino and watched the beautiful Parisian walked by, Paris is for sure the best place for people watching, I simply love to watch all the menand women in their beautiful color coordinated cloths! After my morning co... more »

Travel Journal 2014(日本語版は英語版の後に続きます)2014年旅行記
Finally, I completed my 50 days journey to Europe and Morocco.  I have not written much of my diary 2014 on this trip, mainly because I was so busy with travel plus work at the beginning and later I got sick…unfortunately…but it was at least good that I got sick in France, I was again exposed to the wonderful medical system of France, imaging walking into an ER room and  no one asks if you have insurance or to pay at all…( they bill you later). Must be the French humanitarian idea, help those sick and in need first….
Normally when I get sick while traveling, it was just some light food poisoning, cold, or flu, but this time a bit more complicated, seems to be some allergic reaction causing some sort of asthma, and some stomach virus that made me lose all appetite and kept throwing up, and at the end, maybebecause of my body got weaker, my tonsil in inf... more »

People are like stained-glass windows.  They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.  ~Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
How truth this quotation is!  I have always loved the pyramid of the Louvre but I think it is much prettier at night when darkness set in and the whole pyramid is lightened up from within...it is in times of darkness that we could see so many diamonds.
Other photos are available in my page, thank you!!  https://www.facebook.com/midoriphoto

人間とはステンドグラスの窓のようなものである。彼らは太陽が出ているとき輝き光ってみせるが、闇が覆った時に、もし彼らの内からの光があるのなら、彼らの真実の美しさを見せてくれることでしょう。 〜エリザベス·キューブラー·ロス
この引用は真実を表しているのではないでしょうか。ルーブル美術館のピラミッドはいつも大好きですが、暗くなって内からライトアップされたピラミッドは夜の方がもっと美しく感じられます。

where my soul shall find
unspoken joy in its solitude
冬は禁じられた色の季節
その静寂の内に表す事の出来ない喜びを

ヴェネティア 夢の風景 (日本語版は英語版の後に続きます) Venice, Dreamscape
Often, I dream of walking with you
Down the narrow streets of Venice
Lost in the mazes of canals
Watch the gondolas pass by
And vanish into the mist of early morning
Listen to the sharp sounds of wing beats
As the flight of birds fly away
Forgetting our sadness or even our joy
Living for a moment
With purity of hearts
Losing ourselves in the Serenity of Venice. 

I wrote this 10 years ago for my very first website, a website that changed my life.

よく私はあなたと歩いている夢を見る
ヴェネツィアの細い通りを
運河の迷路に迷ってしまい
ゴンドラが側行くのを眺めている
そして早朝の霧のなかに消えまるで鳥たちが飛び去ろうとするような
羽が打ち鳴らす鋭い音に聴きいいって
私たちの悲しみも喜びも忘れている
心を純粋にする
その瞬間に生きて
私たち自身をヴェネツィアの静寂に失ってしまう

10年ほど前に私の最初のウェブサイトに書いたものです、そのウェブサイトは私の人生を変えました。... more »

若さの泉 (日本語版は英語版の後に続きます) The Fountain of Youth
"There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age." ~ Sophia Loren

I like this quote very much so I share with you tonight, how true it is, I think. Never believe that you are too old to learn new thing, try new experiences, and  go to  new places. For it is when we stop learning and give up trying, it is then that we really aged.  Sometimes we may think it is difficult to adjust to something new, as they said, " you cannot teach an old dog new trick."  But I think we can, with patience and perseverance..anything is possible. And sometimes, we might feel discouraged and want to give up for  no matter how hard we try, we could notachieve what we wanted...but I would tell y... more »

私の愛するパリ(日本語版は英語版の後に続きます) Paris, mon amour
How do you fall in love with a city? just like how you fall in love with a person?  Sometimes it is difficult to tell why and how....My love affair with Paris has started long ago..perhaps during my first visit to Epcot Center in Disney World's Showcase of Nations, when I saw the 180 degree movie of France and instantly I thought it was the most beautiful and romantics place in the world.  But why is Paris romantic, how do you define romantic? The dictionary defines romantic as :Affectedly or extravagantly emotional; Not compatible with reality...so do I think of Paris as some place imaginary? a place very different from the prosaic world I live in? 

Sometimes it is difficult to say why we are particularly attracted to one place and not to others? Just like why do we fall in love with oneparticular person..." Why do you love me?&q... more »

夢の香港 (日本語版は英語版の後に続きます) Dreamscapes, Hong Kong
何かのはずみで .By chance
During my 3 years stay in Hong Kong, I used to go to take fire work every opportunity I had. I like to go to the Ave of the Stars in TST East so I would have Hong Kong Island at the background. But to be able to get in the front, I had to be there 6-7 hours in advance. The firework usually starts at 8.00 pm, so I need to be there around 1-2 pm in order to have a spot in the front, and the police would close off the area 2 hours in advance meaning you cannot get in after 6 pm. I did not want to go alone to take firework photos because I need to wait so many hours and in case I need to get something or go to bathroom, I need someone to hold the spot for me. Unfortunately, most of my photo friends did not want to go because they hate to wait for so long and it was difficult to getsomeone to go with me. One year, I asked one of my fr... more »

10 years Final Episode. 日本語版は英語版の後に続きます 10年間 最終章
Since I fired my solicitor ( based on his advise), I had no legal representative, I would find out the decision of the court through the newspaper. By that time I was already back in Tokyo, my friend called me the moment he saw the news and read out the article to me over the phone. Based on the interview with the lawyer from the company, nothing was clear. They implied the court decision was to their favor but the court did not grant them the 1 million USD they sued me for. I then went to look up the court decision myself through the government's website. The judgement of the court was: 1, In order for them to sue me for causing 1 million USD loss to their USA market, they would need to present further evidences in court to prove their claim, ( meaning another trial? ) 2, I must hand over all the work I didfor them - Which I have done already es... more »

10 years Part 8 日本語版は英語版の後に続きます 10年間 パート 8
August 2007 was one of the most difficult times of my life, since my attempt at settlement outside of court failed, I would have to decide if I should try to borrow/raise money to continue the trial or if I should give up my defense. I am normally a very outgoing person with many friends, but during this period I stayed alone most of the time for I know I must make a decision I would not regret for the rest of my life. I often prize myself as a person with principles, but at what price I would be willing to pay for such principles? It was the hardest decision I have to make. I am not a person who cries easily, not even when I broke up with my boy friend....but during this period I cried so much though knowing very well all the tears in the world would not change a thing. I have played a very dangerous game withoutknowing what sort of people I was deali... more »

10 years Part 7 日本語版は英語版の後に続きます 10年間 パート 7
I had thought of all kind of alternatives. Since they basically forced me to sign a document that is not true, could I file charges with the police based on grounds of harassment? The police after listening to my story said, " Miss, you are very smart, you did not sign the paper. If you have signed the paper, then you may have a case against them, but since you did not sign the paper, no crime has been committed, there is no case." My friend said to me at the time, " Oh, perhaps you should have signed the paper and hand everything over to the police!" But it was too late....

My relationship with my solicitor had been very good. At one point , he even suggested going into business with me. " If they want your stuff so much you must be very good. We can start a company and I will foundinvestors for our venture. You could be... more »

10 years Part 6 日本語版は英語版の後に続きます 10年間 パート 6
In 2005, by chance I was contacted by a sound studio for possible work. I realized that they also have done some work for the company I was involved in the law suit with. During our conversation, the woman told me, " oh, they gave us such a hard time, but another company we know had even more troubles with them..." Later I found out from my friend in the same industry in Japan that their reputation among vendor's companies in Japan was also not good. Another friend found from the news that this same company was also involved in a business contract law suit in China! So at least I was not the only one...I was just so naive and stupid..I did not know what sort of people I was dealing with. Perhaps. this is a hard lesson for me to learn.

In Christmas 2006, I came to Japan to visit my relatives andfriends, after going to take some photo... more »

10 years Part 5 日本語版は英語版の後に続きます 10年間 パート 5
But crying could not solve any problem, could it? I knew I had no other choice but to face whatever given to me and make the best of it. The road ahead was difficult and I alone must walk it.
Of course I am always grateful that I have many friends who helped me through this difficult period with their support and encouragement. Some helped me by looking up past cases, gathered information, offered to lend me money; I remember one friend saying," I don't have much, but whatever I have, you can have....". Another friend proofread ever single legal document I wrote spending hours to make sure all my points are valid. I honestly think he did more than the counsel I hired. It is in times of difficulties that we can really tell who our true friends are.

During this period I made one major mistakehiring the wrong counsels who was only ... more »

In the next few months when I was working on this project, my financial condition did not improved since my resident statue was still pending.  I had done some brand identity work for a fashion company in China for three of their fashion chains but I could not get pay since I had no company's bank account, my client, later became my friend, the creative director of the fashion company, was very kind and helpful, he paid me in cash out of his own pocket and later deduct the money from the check I could not cash. With this money I lived on, but it was not enough to pay my colleagues so I could only asked them to be patience with me.

During this period, we worked on the graphics, built an interactive experience, and edited videos. My client was happy with the result of our work but it was very difficult toget pay. Eventually, this company sent m... more »

“God made the world round so we would never be able to see too far down the road.”― Karen Blixen
In 2004 when I first landed this project after months of hard work and making numerous demos, I was overjoyed. This would be the first time for me to work with world class people and to produce something that would be seen by millions. I was very determine to do my best no matter what it may takes. I am a very different person from my colleague who quit due to temporary illness, I remember saying to him at the time, " You' re going to quit right about the time we are going to do the final demo? If it were me, even if I were in the hospital, I would crawl out from my bed and finish the work, I would never give up after so much hard work.!" Of course he is not me, he would think I am a heartless personwho cares only about work.

In 2004... more »

"Only if you have been in the deepest valley, can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain."  Richard M. Nixon

Though I have never been on the highest mountain, I have, in the past 10 years, been in the deepest valley.  This was something I've never talked about in public before because every time when I mentioned it to a good friend, I could feel my whole body trembles… Maybe now, after many years, I could finally find some peace within myself and accepted what happened as a hard lesson learned.  Life is not fair, and justice has to be purchased with money, it is a cold hard fact of life.

My story started 3 years before I went to Hong Kong to work.  Back in 2001, I wanted to make a website to showcase the photos I took from my backpack trip around theworld. My photos at that time were very ordin... more »

10 years 日本語版は英語版の後に続きます 10年間
Finally I am home after 10 days abroad finishing some business in China. I was hoping I could spend more free time in Hong Kong but instead, most of my time were spent in working and cleaning up things.

Perhaps, this should be my resolution in 2014, make myself work hard and take care of things I don't want to do. I never like the business side of my work, maybe because I am an artist, I only like to create but unfortunately, I have presentations to make, meetings to attend, clients to please, contracts to sign, legal matters to deal with…all these sometimes make me feel very stressful.

It was exactly 10 years ago I left US and went to work in Hong Kong, a place where I knew no one, had no family or friends, except those people I met in a photo sharing site online who later became my good friends. 10 yearsperhaps is not a long time in a per... more »

Story of the Rainforest, part 3 日本語版は英語版の後に続きます 熱帯樹林の物語 パート3
Pedro's condition continued to deteriorate...my heart saddened each time when I visited him though I tried to be as cheerful as I possibly could.  One day Pedro told me he would be returning to his country.  " That's nice, " I said, " your friends and relatives would be glad to see you!" "I am more concerned about Ana, " he said, " If something happens to me, it would be too difficult for her here, I want her to be surrounded by family and friends, I want her to be taken care of...I hope she would find someone who would take very good care of her after I am gone.."  Feeling his deep love for her, I only wanted to cry. It takes a very strong person to accept his fate calmly and to plan for those he would be leaving behind.  I looked at himwith admiration and smile. " I only wish I could c... more »

The next time I walked into Ana in the hallway, I told her that I have heard their story from Pedro and I am so sorry. " Sorry for what?" Ana replied, "I am a very lucky person to be married to the man I love, how many people in the world could find someone who love them enough to give up everything for them? " " But it is so sad and unfair that just when you finally found your happiness it is taken away from you..." I felt tears in my eyes," almost like god has played some games with you...." " I don't think like that at all " Ana replied,"to love and be loved for even just one moment is eternity.  Pedro is a great guy, we share so many common interests, beliefs, and goals, he is the best friend I could possibly ask for!  I am onlygrateful that I could cross paths with him even for... more »

During the period I was volunteering at the hospital, there was another patient that touched my heart very much, his name was Pedro, he was a cancer patient, a man in his thirties.  Pedro was staying in the room next to a patient I visited often, he was very quiet most of the time, just watching TV or reading by himself. Frequently, a young woman would come to see him, sometimes brought with her two children, I assumed they were his family. We often crossed paths in the hospital and smiled at each other until one day she came up and talked to me, " your dress looks so pretty, " she said, " I wish I could find the time to go shopping ." " Thanks, it's just an old dress." I replied, "If you need to go anywhere, I could keep an eye on your husband foryou." " Between work, him, and two kids, I c... more »

When I was a child, because of my parent's long working hours, I often felt a bit sad and lonely.  Unlike other children who love to watch TV, I like to listen to music on the radio and read. I still remember I asked my father to buy me a radio when I was in elementary school, he got me an olive plastic portable one, it was my first radio and I took it everywhere with me, just like I did with the walkman and ipod in later years. 

My mother has many books, I would go through her book shelves reading almost everything.  What I hope the most was to find in books the answers I could not find in real life, the meaning of happiness, the meaning to our existence. I learned very early that happiness lies not in receiving but in giving.  But I also realized my own limitation, what I could give was so little.  I first started out joining the GirlScouts in school, to gain points, ... more »

“To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one’s self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived—this is to have succeeded.” ― Bessie Anderson Stanley

Looking back at 2013 ~part three  2013年を振り返って パート3
In 2013, one lesson I kept on learning from all my travels was persistence, patience, and discipline.  If you ask me how to take a good photo, I will tell you, these three are the most important factors, perhaps, it is not only limited to photography, but apply also to any work, goal, or situation in life.  I do not believe in luck and I do not like to gamble or to ask people for favor, thus, everything I have in my life, I like to build it up with my own two hands.
Almost every day when I was in Tuscany, I got up at 4 am to take sunrise photos and stayed out till past 10 pm for sunset/night photos.  It was good that in the summer months the days are so long so I could spend much more time on my photos but at the same time, it was very tiring, but then nothing is free inthis world.  When we want something, we have to pay a p... more »

“Cities were always like people, showing their varying personalities to the traveler. Depending on the city and on the traveler, there might begin a mutual love, or dislike, friendship, or enmity. Where one city will rise a certain individual to glory, it will destroy another who is not suited to its personality. Only through travel can we know where we belong or not, where we are loved and where we are rejected.” ― Roman Payne, Which is your favorite city/cities?

As 2013 draws to its close, I want to thank each and every one of you for your encouragement and support this year.
In 2013, I made many new friends here and on facebook, and some became my very good friends. I could only say I am so happy and lucky to have met you here.
I thank you for spending the time to read my posts everyday and for commenting on my photo. But most of all, I thank you for sharing with me a world, though virtual, but real.
I hope in 2014, we will learn and grow together, it does not matter how old ( or young) you are, because there is always something new to learn every day.
I hope in 2014 we will not only be glorified in our success but have the strength and determination to fight against all adversities we may encounter.

Looking back at 2013 ~part two  2013年を振り返って パート2
In 2013, I spent almost half of the time traveling.  I went to places I have wanted to go for a long times and been to places I have never dreamt of going. 

I have always wanted to see the lavenders in Provence, thus, in 2013, I timed it very carefully to be sure I would be in Provence between Mid June to Mid July during the lavender's seasons.  But when I first got to South of France in early June, all I could found was small buds of lavenders, it was hard to believe they would be in full bloom in 2 weeks.  I decided to check with the tourist office, and the lady told me since it had been a very cold year, they are expecting the lavenders to bloom a month late!  I have booked all my hotels in advance already because it was very difficult to get a room in thepeak season but I know such as anything in life, there ar... more »

Looking back at 2013 ~part one  2013年を振り返って パート1
As we approach the end of 2013, I want to tell you, 2013 has been one of the best years of my life.
It is not because I won the mega Lotto or landed a high paying job, became famous,or because I met a rich,handsome guy and fell in love, or because I have a baby or bought a big house...or even a car... I have none of the above, my life have been plain and simple.  

2013 has been one of the best years not because of what I have "gained" but because of what I've learned and what I have lost...

Soon after the new year, I received a call from the hospital that an elder relative, at the time living by himself, fell down on the street and was sent to the emergency room.  Not long afterward, he passed away, never had a chance to say goodbye...Irealized then how fragile life is, that we must never ta... more »

Many years ago, when I was a student in U.S., one of our text books was " Japan as no 1, lessons for America ". Many years later,  can Japan still uphold such reputation? My experience with Nikon yesterday proved contrary. I would say it was one of the most negative experiences I had.

I was using my D300 for 6 years and had been waiting for the release of a new Nikon. Last year when D800 came out, I was so happy. After reading many good reviews, I decided to pre-ordered D800 in March and finally received on May 26th. The store I ordered from was very good and told me to check the camera to make sure it was ok or they would replace a new one for me because D800 is known to have focusing problems.  My camera was ok in focusing, though a bit slow and I was very excited about my new camera.  But I made the mistake of not checkingcarefully the 10-pin remote term... more »

One of my favorite Christmas Carols is "O Holy Night", maybe because I have heard this song played so many times at home, in church and in school. This song often brings back to me childhood memories....When I was a child, I love December because of my birthday and christmas. To prevent my parents from getting me one present for both christmas and birthday, I would always hang a stocking by my bed and asked my father," could you please send a letter to uncle santa and ask him to fill my christmas stocking ?" Daddy would smile and say, " Let's see if you have been a good girl this year." But I think my father must be a very good friend with santa, no matter how bad I behaved, I would always find my stocking filled on Christmas ..Daddy, I miss you very much, on Christmas and everyday... Celine Dion - O Holy Night (Lyrics)

I want to give you for  christmas
A sea of sparkling lights 
A crystal wild flowers field in colors of rainbow
May each light give you joy, hope, and love
and light your way when you are lost
I will grow for you a tree of ice
to shelter you from all storms 
that you may encounter along your way
and keep you warm on a cold winter night.
My wishes are for you this X'mas and always
May the light guide you home
To the place where your heart belongs.

そして寒い冬の夜にあなたを暖めてくれるでしょう。

They are mirrors of our souls
Our beauties are measured

“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.” ― Robert Fulghum
Maybe you will disagree with this quote, you may think, knowledge is most important. One must understand our history, gather facts, and learn from our experiences. But would you not think that laughter is the cure for grief and love is stronger than death?
Being a logical person, I am at the same time a dreamer.. I like to dreams of things I could not see or feel, believe in fairy tales and happy endings, trust that as long as we have faith, we could over come all.

You see things as they are and you ask "why?"
I dream things that never were, and I ask " why not?"
George Bernard Shaw — 
I first read this quote in Jr High school, I thought it was by Robert Kennedy. Apparently,  Kennedy has used George Bernard Shaw's Quote in his speech. I love this quote immediately even as a young girl. Maybe because I ,even then, often dreamt things as they never were and asked " why not"?
When I was small, I did not dream of being rich or famous, nor did I dream of being a mum and having a family of my own like many little girls.  What I dreamt of the was to do something meaningful in my life for I fear most was to live a life with regrets. I dreamt of a world with love where we all could live together as brothers and sisters, where there is no racism, no conflicts over religion,border, no injustice, no starvat... more »
