I take a break, best wishes! by jerome

I take a break, best wishes!

The first days of January - the morning of the year; a new section in the river of time passing.

I like the morning hours. When the darkness of the night slowly gives way, the day awakens; nothing is over, you can think of the possible; still far away is the bustling of the day. And the young sun spreads a light with silent magic.
I took this picture during a walk on the beach of Salalah. The water gleams in the morning sun and I listen to the calm and smooth breathing of the sea. I really like this rhythm in tone and movement. For me, who lives in a landlocked country, the sea is something very special. My steps in the shining sand, the flow of my thoughts, the beat of my heart,... everything is enveloped by this evenness of flooding and ebbing. Every wave is different, new and unique in the constant repetition.

With this morning image, I say goodbye for a while. The professional interests occupy me, stress me, and leave me little time for other things. Often I feel impolite when I write so few comments, when I get in touch behind time. English is not my mother tongue, I feel my limitations in expression, often I’m laboriously searching for suitable words. I always hope for your forbearance.

So I'm taking a break. Heartfelt thanks for the extremely friendly comments I have received! Today, as at the beginning of my participation in 365project, I feel wonderfully accepted and accompanied. Certainly I will come to visit now and then, to look at the great pictures of you, to be inspired by your view of the world. A great community, from all corners of the world, united by the love of photography - and much more than that.

Have it well and nice.
I was just going to say, I'm amazed at your perseverance to post your amazing photos here but then I saw your comments and I have to say, So long, its been good to know you! Its a lovely old song! fav
January 3rd, 2019  
Fabulous as always!
January 3rd, 2019  
Oh, and I see only now the commentary... well, your photos will be missed! Take care, Jerome.
January 3rd, 2019  
Fav. I will miss your beautiful photography, Jerome. They speak volumes in mood, feeling, lighting and composition. For English not being your first language, your words translate across country boundaries. Take good care and please join us again when time allows. Wishing you and yours the very best! Auf Wiedersehen.
January 3rd, 2019  
I'll really miss your wonderful photos! Best of luck Jerome :)
January 3rd, 2019  
A spectacular image with such beautiful tones and lines. I'm sorry your work is stressing you, and many of us empathize as we struggle with balancing life and 365, too. Do come back when you can and let us see your images, whether you have time to comment on others' or not. Seeing your images will inspire us. Wishing you the best.
January 3rd, 2019  
go gently, jerome. i will look forward to your return if and when life allows. your eloquence always impresses me, despite english not being your mother tongue, and your images ... well, they are always a delight and an inspiration
January 3rd, 2019  
Wonderful shot I will miss your wonderful inspiring pictures. So when you are ready, do come back & grace our screens with your magnificent shots.. All the best for the NEW YEAR
January 3rd, 2019

January 3rd, 2019

January 3rd, 2019  
Jerome, Jerome - after exhorting me to stay you're leaving yourself! I understand my friend and it's been a pleasure and a privilege to have viewed your wonderful images and contemplated your thought provoking comments. Go safely into the dark night...

January 3rd, 2019  
you know where to find us when you feel for inspiration, jerome. :-) and thank you for your oman photographs, it certainly rekindled the memories of my three and a half years residency in muscat. and of course re-ignited the fire to write the stories left unwritten. all the best.
January 3rd, 2019  
and just to remind you, when you come to toronto, dinner's on me. viel glück.
January 3rd, 2019  
I will miss your beautiful photos. Do you perhaps post elsewhere? Flickr? 500px? Instagram? Would love to follow even if you post only now and then. Wishing you all the best.
January 3rd, 2019

Beautiful image. Fav!
January 3rd, 2019  
So sad to see you have to leave us here on 365 - take good care of yourself and remember to "stop and smell the roses" in your busy life :)
January 3rd, 2019  
I can only agree with what everyone else has said, you'll be missed for your words as well as your wonderful images. Don't stay away too long 🙂
January 3rd, 2019  
As I come back, you go! Ships passing in the night! Lovely shot.
January 3rd, 2019  
Wonderful image to end with. It's beautiful. fav
January 4th, 2019  
I love your photos! Looking forward to the moments when you drop in!

All the best in the New Year!

Such a lovely tranquil image, take care
January 4th, 2019  
This is stunning, Jerome. Sad to have just gotten back into 365 and enjoying your photos, and now they'll be no more, for a while anyway. I hope they'll be back.
January 4th, 2019  
I will miss your images so much but wish you time for yourself again and to focus on other areas where needed. I'm hoping you will be back, of course, and look forward to when that happens. All the best to you!

Thank you all for the many warm words! It really touches me a lot. I will try to be more personal with you when answering. But please give me some time.
I certainly will not forget you. I send you very dear thoughts that come from the heart.
January 4th, 2019  
A wonderful shot. Great light and edit. Fav!
January 4th, 2019  
Come back soon!
January 5th, 2019  
Beautiful beautiful shot - hope to see you again in the not too distant future, all the best.
January 5th, 2019  
I love the lighting and pattern of the water. I'm sorry you are leaving and will miss your beautiful pictures. I hope you will stop in when you can. Take care.
January 7th, 2019  
@domenicododaro Thank you, Domenico! You bring in Italian flair, I find that very enriching. To my shame, I must confess that I've never been to Rome... Of course I must have been there at least once in my life. I know Venice, Florence, a little Milan, Lake Garda, a little Naples, Mantua. Italy is great!
January 10th, 2019  
@gardenfolk Thank you very much, CC! Your dear words touch me very much. It's a nice feeling when my pictures appeal to you. Only through our feelings we become human beings.
I wish you all the very best!
January 10th, 2019  
@maggiemae Thanks, Maggiemae, for your nice comment! It was my pleasure. I am very happy about the meeting with you! I hope I can attend again soon.
January 10th, 2019  
@jerome Drop a message if you ever come. Rome is too much, in many ways. But you must see it at least once in your life. And when it happens, let me know!
January 10th, 2019  
How lovely for you that this exquisite photo is on the TT this week.
January 11th, 2019  
Congratulations to you, Jerome! This was an outstanding shot! :)
January 12th, 2019  
@m2016 Thank you for your kind comment! I wish you all the best as well and look forward to seeing you again.
January 12th, 2019  
@jyokota Thank you, dear Junko! I am very happy about your words of appreciation. The job puts a lot of strain on me. I hope I can return to photography and the great people in this community in a reasonable time. Wish you also the very best!
January 12th, 2019  
@pistache Thank you, Clare, for your dear lines!
It is not easy for me at the moment. I would very much like to dedicate myself more to photography and the so friendly people in this community. Thank you for your warmhearted companion since the beginning of my project in this forum! I still can not believe what great people are here. Certainly this is unique.
January 12th, 2019  
@777margo Thank you, Margo, for your warm lines!
Of course I will come back as soon as I have more breathing room again.
And belatet: Happy New Year!
January 12th, 2019  
@onewing Thanks for your kind comment, Babs! I am really happy about it. Unfortunately, at the moment I do not have the leisure time to devote myself to photography. Of course, the photos are the focus, but I also want to maintain the personal contact. It makes me uncomfortable if I do not spend the necessary amount of attention for the dear followers.
January 12th, 2019  
@joansmor Thank you for your nice comment!
January 12th, 2019  
@vignouse Thank you, Richard, for your warm words and good wishes! I appreciate your work very much and your way of looking at the world. There is always something very precious about your pictures and your words: life experience, mindfulness, character, depth of thought, sensitivity to moods and relationships.
January 12th, 2019  
@shannejw Thanks, Shanne, for your nice comment!
I am really happy about it. I will have to find a balance in my life.
January 12th, 2019  
@bella_ss Thank you, dear Sheralee, for your nice comment!
A break, yes. I have a lot to organize. But certainly I will come again.
January 12th, 2019  
@casablanca Danke für deine herzlichen Worte und lieben Wünsche, Casablanca! Danke auch, dass du mich stets mit Zeilen in meiner Muttersprache erfreust. England... Ich muss zu meiner Schande gestehen, dass ich noch nie in England war. Wenigstens ein Mal in meinem Leben muss ich dieses Land bereisen. Recht liebe Grüße nach London! Alles Gute für dich und deine Familie!
January 12th, 2019  
@pusspup Thank you for your nice comment!
January 12th, 2019

@kjarn Thank you, Kathy, for your nice comment! I'm always excited about pictures of Australia - a strong country, a great continent. Best regards to Sydney!
January 12th, 2019

@tonygig Thank you, Tony, for your nice visit!
January 12th, 2019  
@moonmtn Thank you for your nice comments! Salt Spring Island... an island with a remarkable history. It must be a wonderful place - and Vancouver, British Columbia... certainly a good idea to get to know Canada from this point on.
January 12th, 2019  
See you soon I hope JEROME.
January 12th, 2019  
You are a big favourite on 365 Jerome...you are missed when you have a break. Very understandable though...its tricky to find the time to do this daily...and in another language. I cannot imagine how you do it. I love seeing the world through your lens.
January 12th, 2019  
@hrs Thanks, dear Helen, for your kind comment! Seeing the world through the eyes of others: that's beautiful. Telling with pictures what one has seen, experienced, felt; what makes you move, to pause and enjoy...

I'm always very happy about your pictures of Australia - maybe, sometime in my life, I'll come back there. I wish it very much.
Best regards to Brisbane!
January 13th, 2019  
@gardenfolk Thanks, CC, for your congratulations! I'm very glad about that; and I'm happy about you.
January 13th, 2019  
@lyndamcg Lynda - you are a special person for me in this community. You're the first one to comment on my first posted picture. Three years have passed since then and you still write me. That is unique. Thank you for your dear companionship during this time. Best regards to Hutton! I hope you are well.
January 13th, 2019  
@jackies365 Thank you, Jackie, for your nice comment!
January 13th, 2019

January 14th, 2019  
@summerfield Thank you, Vicki, for your kind words!
Oman - how nice that you spent so much time there. I think such experiences shape a person, they are certainly a treasure inside, memories for a lifetime. Yes, write your pictures that you carry in you, the sounds, the smells, the tasted, everything felt...

Yes, Toronto... dinner... what a nice thought...

Take care.
January 14th, 2019  
Dear April, thank you for your kind visit! I am not involved in any other platform. The professional circumstances currently leave me no opportunity to devote myself to photography. I hope my living conditions improve. Then I will come back. Unfortunately, there are only short visits to this community at the moment. Thank you very much for your nice company! I really appreciate that.
January 15th, 2019

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today,
Tomorrow will be dying.

Thank you, Denise, for your lines touching me.

With my heart and my thoughts I stay here anyway.

Thank you, dear Jane, for your nice comment!
Space and time - they become void when thoughts travel to each other. No coming, no going, always there in the heart.
January 15th, 2019  
@sstcowan Thanks, dear Shari, for your kind comment!
I hope it is not my end. I'm actually planning a break.
January 15th, 2019
