We are all dying, every moment that passes of every day. That is the inescapable truth of this existence. It is a truth that can paralyze us with fear, or one that can energize us with impatience, with the desire to explore and experience, with the hope- nay, the iron-will!- to find a memory in every action. To be alive, under sunshine, or starlight, in weather fair or stormy. To dance with every step, be they through gardens of flowers or through deep snows. 🌈 (R.A. Salvatore) 🌈 To finding a memory in every action and living your life 🥂 Happy Friday, y’all! 🌈 🌈 #reflection #puddle #yongelove #reflectiongram #puddlegram #lovetoronto #CreateExplore #olympusinspired #getolympus #summerintoronto #torontophoto #exploreyourcity #visualsoflife #creativeoptic #dailyhivetoronto #theuniversalart #bravogreatphoto #ourclickdays #lightroommasters #visual_architects #torontolove #yyzishome #theimaged #grammercollective #blogTO #wandering #itswhatido

Every great dream begins with a dreamer.

The ghosts of things that never happened are worse than the ghosts of things that did. ⛵️ (L.M. Montgomery, Emily's Quest) ⛵️ To a summer filled with possibilities and to keeping the ghosts of things that never happened at bay, Happy Monday y’all! (Taken on the @tallshipkajama boat cruise on the same day of the torrential downpours we had last week - storm clouds were gathering and it was definitely a beautiful sight!) What potential does this week hold for you? (For example: My week holds the potential for a chance of thunderstorms followed by the chance of puddle hunting 😜🤪) ⛵️ ⛵️ #tallshipkajama #framing #killaframez #compositionkillers #depthoffield #lovetoronto #CreateExplore #olympusinspired #getolympus #summerintoronto #torontophoto #exploreyourcity #visualsoflife #creativeoptic #dailyhivetoronto #theuniversalart #bravogreatphoto #ourclickdays #lightroommasters #visual_architects #torontolove #yyzishome #theimaged #grammercollective #blogTO #wandering #itswhatido

Life is an adventure of passion, risk, danger, laughter, beauty, love; a burning curiosity to go with the action to see what it is all about, to go search for a pattern of meaning, to burn one's bridges because you're never going to go back anyway, and to live to the end. 💧 (Saul D. Alinsky, Reveille for Radicals) 💧 Wednesday’s torrential downpours made for some excellent puddles. Here’s to living so that you find out what life is all about! 🥂 Happy Friday, y’all! 💧 💧 #reflection #puddle #reflectiongram #puddlegram #urbanandstreet #yongestreet #lovetoronto #CreateExplore #olympusinspired #getolympus #summerintoronto #torontophoto #exploreyourcity #visualsoflife #creativeoptic #dailyhivetoronto #theuniversalart #bravogreatphoto #ourclickdays #lightroommasters #visual_architects #torontolove #yyzishome #theimaged #grammercollective #blogTO #wandering #itswhatido

Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your hearth or burn down your house, you can never tell. 🎋 (Joan Crawford) 🎋 I think this quote could also apply to one’s passions...best keep that fire extinguisher handy 😜🤪 Happy Wednesday, y’all! 🙌 🎋 🎋 #depthoffield #torontoislands #groundgame #dof_addicts #goldenhour #torontoskyline #lovetoronto #CreateExplore #olympusinspired #getolympus #summerintoronto #torontophoto #exploreyourcity #visualsoflife #creativeoptic #dailyhivetoronto #theuniversalart #bravogreatphoto #ourclickdays #lightroommasters #visual_architects #torontolove #yyzishome #theimaged #grammercollective #blogTO #wandering #itswhatido

I have not yet lost a feeling of wonder, and of delight, that the delicate motion should reside in all the things around us, revealing itself only to him who looks for it. ✨ (Edmund Burke) ✨ To finding wonder and delight and to creating it when there appears to be none! This post is dedicated to those who bring wonder and delight into our worlds.🥂 Happy Tuesday y’all! 🥂 ✨ (Taken about a year ago, in a puddle in a parking lot at Polson Pier. Some of the best views I’ve seen of a city can often be found in a puddle in a parking lot...just sayin’...💁🏻‍♀️) ✨ ✨ #reflection #puddle #reflectiongram #puddlegram #symmetry #symmetricalmonsters #lovetoronto #CreateExplore #olympusinspired #getolympus #summerintoronto #torontophoto #exploreyourcity #visualsoflife #creativeoptic #dailyhivetoronto #theuniversalart #bravogreatphoto #ourclickdays #lightroommasters #visual_architects #torontolove #yyzishome #theimaged #grammercollective #blogTO #wandering #itswhatido

I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we’re talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime “associates,” food, for me, has always been an adventure. ⛓ (Anthony Bourdain) ⛓ Not gonna lie, Anthony Bourdain’s death has thrown me for a loop: he was a person who crossed borders and boundaries and got people to tell their stories in a genuine way, often using food as the starting point to get the conversation started ⛓ Deep thoughts (and an important reminder) for the start of the work week: Instagram is a curated version of a person’s life. It doesn’t tell the full story. Even though it appears that someone is living an adventurous and amazing life that touches so many in a positive way, it doesn’t necessarily tell the full story of that person. I think that’s something that is all too easy to forget when we look at a person’s feed: what’s being presented is still an edited and curated version of that person’s story - not the Whole story. ⛓ ⛓ #depthoffield #framing #composition #lovetoronto #getolympus #CreateExplore #olympusinspired #getolympus #summerintoronto #torontophoto #exploreyourcity #visualsoflife #creativeoptic #dailyhivetoronto #theuniversalart #bravogreatphoto #ourclickdays #lightroommasters #visual_architects #torontolove #yyzishome #theimaged #grammercollective #blogTO #wandering #itswhatido

(👆⬅️ Swipe left for full panoramic image ⬅️👆) If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather. • Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they’re going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side. It’s hard to be a friend to someone who’s depressed, but it is one of the kindest, noblest, and best things you will ever do. 🌤 (Stephen Fry) 🌤 R.I.P. Anthony Bourdain - The O.G. badass (and smart ass) storytelling celebrity chef

Buy a coffee. Change a life. 🏕🛶 Today is camp day and for every coffee purchased, Ti@ Horton’s will be donating 100% of the proceeds towards sending a child from a low income homes go to camp. I plan on purchasing my coffee and camp bracelet from @timhortonshhof 🛶🏕

Almost all absurdity of conduct arises from the imitation of those whom we cannot resemble. 🌊 (Samuel Johnson, The Rambler) 🌊 Let’s face the facts, it’s easier to be yourself than someone else - or if you’re going to imitate someone’s tones/composition/etc, at least give them inspiration credit. Rant over.

Passion. It lies in all of us. Sleeping... waiting... and though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir... open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us... guides us. Passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love... the clarity of hatred... the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we'd know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank. Without passion, we'd be truly dead. ✨ (Joss Whedon) ✨ Would you prefer the peace of living without it? Or live with it it till it consumes you? (For the record: I’m beginning to think all consuming is the way to go...) ✨ ✨ #depthoffield #dof_addicts #depthobsessed #groundgame #goldenhour #lovetoronto #CreateExplore #olympusinspired #getolympus #springintoronto #torontophoto #exploreyourcity #visualsoflife #creativeoptic #dailyhivetoronto #theuniversalart #bravogreatphoto #ourclickdays #lightroommasters #visual_architects #torontolove #yyzishome #theimaged #grammercollective #blogTO #wandering #itswhatido

If you're going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don't even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery--isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you'll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. 👤 (Charles Bukowski, Factotum) 👤 When chatting with ppl who turned their side hustle into a full time one, there’ve always been specific sentiments that stick out, mainly: You will have to make sacrifices and often you’ll have to go it alone. So, I guess the real question is: How badly do you want it? 👤 👤 #silhouette_creative #goldenhour #torontoislands #solo #lovetoronto #CreateExplore #olympusinspired #getolympus #springintoronto #torontophoto #exploreyourcity #visualsoflife #creativeoptic #dailyhivetoronto #theuniversalart #bravogreatphoto #ourclickdays #lightroommasters #visual_architects #torontolove #yyzishome #theimaged #grammercollective #blogTO #wandering #itswhatido

Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option. 🌊 (Mark Twain) 🌊 Bitter pill to swallow as the same could be said for making someone your option while you’re actually their priority. Would you rather have priorities or options? (For example: I like to have an option of priorities 🤪 jk - I just like to know what my priorities are.) 🌊 🌊 #reflection #puddle #symmetricalmonsters #torontoskyline #splash #lovetoronto #CreateExplore #olympusinspired #getolympus #springintoronto #torontophoto #exploreyourcity #visualsoflife #creativeoptic #dailyhivetoronto #theuniversalart #bravogreatphoto #ourclickdays #lightroommasters #visual_architects #torontolove #yyzishome #theimaged #grammercollective #blogTO #wandering #itswhatido
