2013 Lily Series – 03

 

“Oft expectation fails, and most oft where most it promises; and oft it hits where hope is coldest; and despair most sits” – William Shakespeare

 

“I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped.” – Frederick Perls

Expectation

Expectation

 

It is somewhat ironic that expectation is the word that came to mind when contemplating this evening’s post.  Why, you might ask.  Because tonight I am filled with both excitement and anticipation, and trying not to escalate my expectations of the gallery opening I am participating in tomorrow evening.  The Buck’s County Project Gallery has its debut tomorrow night and the owner, who is also an artist and photographer, asked me to participate when she saw my sunflower series earlier this year.  I was very honored and am filled with gratitude that she found my work worthy of her gallery featuring fabulous photography by Buck’s County artists.  Even more ironic, is that the author of the second quote above was born in Germany,  as was Stephanie, the gallery owner, who, I believe, lives by the philosophy so eloquently stated in the quote.
