“Never be afraid to sit awhile and think.” ~ Lorraine Hansberry

February is Black History Month, so I’ll be trying to share quotes from famous African Americans to go along with my photographs for the challenge. Ohhh, look a little history lesson to go with the pretty pictures

Lorraine Hansberry was an African American playwright and author of political letters, speeches and essays.  Her best known work is A Raisin in the Sun which has been performed on numerous stages and made into two movies.

These photos were taken during one of my walks through the Cape Girardeau Conservation Center. This is where I go to be still and think, to meditate on the words of the Lord and to find peace when I’m feeling pulled in too many directions.

I’m linking up with Alicia of Project Alicia,  Faith of Sweet Violet, Kristi of live and love…out loud and Rebecca of Bumbles and Light  for a 4 week photography challenge that celebrates the poetic beauty of winter. If you’d like to participate, here are a few details:
