"It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power." - Alan Cohen

I very much appreciate my articles and photos appearing on fellow bloggers' sites, popular broadsheets, and local broadcast news segments, but I would appreciate even more a request for permission first.

i definitely agree with this. there should always be change and not just change but a change for something good. through "change" we risk a lot, we learn a lot and we gain a lot.

Change is both sweet and sad.
I like change and adventure. But in my present situation, I can't make any major decision without first considering how it will affect my family. So in the meantime, I content myself in this comfort zone. :)

Wonderful and tranquil photo. Like Alan I believe that there is security for those who are adveturous and like to risk on

Fascinating. I've been mulling along these lines these past few days. It's so easy to cling to the familiar that lulls us into a [false] sense of security. It certainly takes courage to break out of our comfort zone and explore the unknown. Nagiging deep pala ako pag ganitong oras! hahaha
Great shot, by the way.:D

I think Alan Cohen is talking to me LOL.

I usually cringe when I hear the word "change" because of the unpredictability of it. Of course, I like the phrase "change for the better" but then the way change manifests is often mysterious---sometimes dramatic and sometimes as subtle as an evening song.
My hope is that I always have the acceptance and inner peace to always face Change. Unconsciously, I have often opted for risk-taking though. Kaya nga, with my propensity for the untrodden path, I keep praying for strength and enthusiasm for each milestone. Thanks, eric, for the lovely passage...and photo. Reminds me of this island :-) where I live.
