I say goodbye for a while by jerome

I say goodbye for a while

My cloud is waiting for me. She will gently carry me away, cotton-soft...
I have everything I need in my backpack. Drifting on, I'll try to collect my thoughts and sort out several matters.

Many thanks to my visitors, especially my followers. Being part of this community is a wonderful experience for me - every day a marvellous inspiration and an opportunity to learn. Now is a good moment to say thank you for the many nice comments I received for my shared pictures.
Unfortunately, I was not able to look at your photos as carefully and thoroughly as I would like, especially recently. The circumstances are sometimes unfavorable. I also often felt the limits of my language skills for English. I was hoping you would be lenient with me.
I intend to visit this great community every now and then, enjoying your pictures and your special ways of looking at and interpreting the world.

This world is beautiful.


I wish you the very best.
Take care!




Stunning - you will be missed. Your photos are always inspiring and beautiful. Your English is superb. I hope all gets better in your world soon. Pop back when you can :-) FAV

September 15th, 2020  
@zambianlass Thank you for your kind words! You have a great album! Africa is a fascinating continent. So far I have only visited Morocco and Namibia. Namibia borders a short distance on Zambia 😊. However, I didn't get that far. The northernmost area I roamed on this trip was Etosha National Park.
I wish you a full life on your farm in this wonderful landscape. With your pictures I sometimes feel like I have been transported into the film “Out of Africa” - there, too, a bit of the love for the landscapes can be felt.
September 15th, 2020  
@arnica17 I am always very moved when I meet people from all over the world on this platform. For me it is still a magical process when an exchange of thoughts occurs and a relationship develops. Indonesia ... unfortunately I have never been there. It must be a wonderful country.

You are right, time flies. And the older you get, the faster the days go by.
Enjoy your youth, be curious, ask questions, try to get the bottom of the living conditions, give the days a meaning, have many fulfilling moments and loving encounters.
I am very happy about your pictures from your world. These are a wonderful enrichment.
I wish you all the best. We'll see each other again someday.
September 15th, 2020  
@wag864 Thank you for your kind lines and good wishes! Where I'm going... I don't know. The cloud will tell me...
I wish you all the best on all your paths!
September 15th, 2020  
@pistache Thank you, Clare, for your kind wishes! You have been with me for so long. You are one of the first to visit my site and I am still receiving your attention - something very special. I really appreciate it. Thank you! We'll see each other again, for sure ...
September 15th, 2020  
@kjarn Thank you, Kathy, for your kind words! Let's try the best these days. Greetings to Australia! A strong continent. I love to wander my thoughts to the places I've seen on my journey along the Gibb River Road. A few years have passed since then...

May you meet a lot of good things in your life.
September 15th, 2020  
Only started following you recently but am quite impressed with your talent and art. You will be missed. All the best
September 15th, 2020  
@pusspup Thanks for your kind lines, Wylie!
Maybe I'm in some cloud cuckoo land...
But what I actually want is a view of connections. That requires distance and the possibility of an unobstructed view of the whole. Maybe the cloud is a symbol for it. From a cloud I see not just a tree, but entire forests - how they stretch over hills, how they make way for meadows and fields and how roads and villages run through the landscape. I can see how the individual is located in the whole.
I really want this chance. I mean, it's about the relationship between part and whole, whole and part.
September 15th, 2020  
@frappa77 Thank you, Francesca, for your nice words!
To share something with someone - a thought, a meal, an experience, joy, sorrow,... a photo... I think a lot has happened when this occurs.
September 15th, 2020  
A magical farewell that I hope is temporary. Your are so talented. I will miss your photos. Wishing you the best.
September 15th, 2020  
@aikiuser Thank you, Jenn, for your warm words! Gladly I'll stop by now and then. I'm really looking forward to your pictures. I wish you all the best and many fulfilling moments on all of your life's paths!!!
September 15th, 2020  
@axika Thank you, Alexandra, for your kind wishes! Yes, every now and then I'll come by and let the pictures surprise me.
September 15th, 2020  
@gilbertwood Thank you, Denise, for your kind words! So your backpack is packed too. Drifting to Australia - a good idea :). In my mind I do this for sure.
September 15th, 2020  
@louannwarren Dear Lou Ann, with you I always feel: a person with a warm heart.
I like to stop by from time to time, enjoy the pictures, the thoughts, the feelings of the people in this great community.
I wish you many joyful and fulfilling encounters!
September 15th, 2020

You have a great album. I will love to browse through it every now and then. Wishing you all the best!
September 15th, 2020  
You have a great ship but it's hard to get there. I guess that's why so few people decide to go on such a trip. Thank you for being with us and I look forward to the next meeting. Have a safe journey.
September 16th, 2020

September 16th, 2020  
@summerfield Vikki... Are you also considering a trip with a cotton-soft cloud? You see, there is a lot of space... During the day you have a beautiful view of the earth, at night of the stars...

There are many doubts in my life circumstances. Times have become more difficult. Much has changed, in my opinion not everything for the better. I will try to sort things out and ask how the priorities should be set. For me.

Sommerfield... I like that word a lot. I am thinking of blooming flowers swaying gently in a soft summer wind.

Your stories are wonderful and so beautifully told. I am certainly not exaggerating when I say that you are a special personality full of character in this community, sensitive and thoughtful; shaped by an eventful life.
Thank you for the many beautiful lines that you share so generously and thank you for your strong pictures. Thank you for your kind attention to my pictures. Forgive me for writing you so seldom. I often lack the right words and the subtleties of the English language.

Take care!
September 16th, 2020  
Thanks for all your inspiration, Jerome! I wish you a good journey with a soft landing. Take care!
September 16th, 2020  
I too have found your images inspirational. Take care of yourself my friend. You will be missed and I will look forward to your return.
September 16th, 2020  
@inthecloud5 Thank you, dear Christine! I trust in my cloud :).

@annied Thanks for your kind wishes, Annie!
Thank you for what you shared - pictures and words that are full of character.
I would like to take your words with me:
"...it doesn't matter where you're from where you've been
just who you are
and what you share
that makes us friends... "
September 17th, 2020  
@lmsa Thank you! I also wish you all the best and a lot of joy in discovering this world.

Oh Jerome! What can I add to what all the others have said? I will miss you and your great photos a lot, and I hope that you'll find the right way to make you happy and satisfied. Come back soon, please!

@mittens
You say you love the sky... I think that's where good thoughts come from...
Thank you, Marilyn, for your kind words.

By the way, my son's birthday falls on Groundhog Day. :)

Greetings to Western Australia! - I saw a small corner of it: I drove on Gibb River Road a few years ago. A journey with strong memories.

@domenicododaro Thank you very much, Domenico!
Travelling... on the flow of life. In the end it all remains a journey to myself. I remain a seeker.
Thank you for your inspiring company. You have something that this world needs more than ever: a sense of poetry.
Take care.
September 18th, 2020  
@orion5d Thank you, Astrid, for your nice lines! Thanks for the link to your great site! Fabulous how you play on your handpan. I had always wished that I could learn a musical instrument, to penetrate deeper into the essence of music.
Thank you for your kind wishes for my "journey". We'll see what tomorrow will give me. I roam the history of ideas and focus on the present. I think tomorrow needs understanding yesterday in order to be in the here and now.

I wish you all the best.
September 18th, 2020  
@rumpelstiltskin Thank you, Lynn, for your kind greetings!

@vignouse
Richard... This name in this community stands for someone who really cares about photography. Looking for good form, considering very carefully, critical in the best sense of the word, perceptive, having a cultivated sense of image moods and soft tones, mingling with wordly wisdom - that's what comes to mind with this name.
I really appreciate you, my friend.
Take care and greetings to your wife.
September 18th, 2020  
@shutterbug49 Thank you very much for your very nice lines!

Jerome, I have always loved your pictures although I seldom have passed comment. I will miss seeing them so I truly hope that you are able to pop in and post one every so often. Wishing you everything of the best whilst you are in your cloud. Take care of yourself and stay safe
September 18th, 2020

@taffy Thank you, Taffy, for your kind visit!
Your way of representing the world is really impressive. Thanks for sharing. Your pictures are a wonderful enrichment!
All the best!
September 18th, 2020  
Oh, Jerome...you, your photographs and inspiration will be greatly missed. You not only speak English very well but express yourself through not only language but through your look at life through your photography. This year has been a struggle and disappointment in many ways. I hope everyone finds more clarity, understanding, love, compassion and kindness. I wish I could walk to wellness with you. Safe travels and take good care.

"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crown less again shall be king."

@haskar You are right - not everyone sails with "my ship". But everyone should have the opportunity to do so. It should be a basic right for everyone. I think this world needs this more than ever: pausing, questioning the circumstances - is it right as it is? Are there alternatives? What is my meaning in this world and in this moment? Who are we and who do we want to be?
I think there are a lot of questions ...

Thank you for your nice wishes.
Greetings to Warsaw!
September 18th, 2020  
@4rky Thank you very much for your nice lines! Your dear wishes travel with me.

I'll try it. I'm excited to see where my cloud will take me.

The best of luck!

@rosiekerr Thanks, Rosie!
A nice phrase. I didn't know. I like to take it with me on my journey. :)
Wishing you all the best.

Finding a suitable perspective and thinking about what I really need - that will accompany me on my journey.
Wishing you well!

@salza Thank you, Sally, for your lovely visit!
I really appreciate it.
Nice greetings to Tulbagh!
September 18th, 2020  
I hope I am not too late to wish you well as you get carried away on the clouds. I feel sad that I have not engaged as much with your wounderful photography this time around, as you know, life throws other challenges our way, to prevent us from always doind as we please. I also feel sad that I will no longer see your work, for a while, but I hope you will be back. I think I have said before, your command of English is admirable, you express well and have such sensitivity in all you present whether written or in images. Your photography is first class, but more than that, your gentle, caring and thoughtful personality shines through. Bon voyage and take good care, I hope the soft cloud is full of comfort.
September 18th, 2020  
@jerome If you ever come in my direction (Verona or Cortina) I'd love to meet you and perhaps take a few pictures together. That would really be a treat! Be happy and be safe
September 18th, 2020  
I hope the cloud won't take you too far. Be happy! Congratulations on TT
September 19th, 2020  
Congrats on TT... Enjoy life!
September 19th, 2020  
@gardenfolk Thank you, dear Cathee, for your kind words! There is so much warmth in them. I really like to take them on my journey.
The forests are burning and yet the world has gotten colder. What we need more and more is - as you put it so nicely - clarity, understanding, love, compassion and kindness. These are values that make us human. And whoever has the love for nature and can perceive its beauties, does not exploit and destroy it for selfish profit. The correct attitude is not “the more the better” but “enough is enough”. In addition, it cannot be that very few people own most of all goods, while children die because they have no clean water, nothing to eat and no medical care. I think this world is rich enough for everyone to live with dignity. There is still a lot to be said about it...

Thanks for the impressive quote and the link to the beautiful melody.
I sincerely wish you all the best, health and love!
September 19th, 2020  
@helenhall Dear Helen, thank you very much for your kind lines! I'm very pleased. Don't worry about the quantity of writing. We both know that a good encounter is about qualities. It then doesn't need words all the time. It is important to be aware that the other is thinking of you and that good thoughts are connecting - regardless of distance and time. But of course I am always very happy to receive lines from you. They come from a thoughtful and empathetic character.
We also know that living conditions are not always favorable. Sometimes the demands of the day drain our strength. We can then no longer devote ourselves to what seems important to us personally.

My cloud gives me everything I need. I feel softly embedded and enjoy the slow hovering. From up there I have an unobstructed view of the vastness. The houses, streets and forests are far away and very small, as are the worries.

I hope you always have enough time for yourself, can linger over good thoughts, enjoy the moment and live in the here and now.
I wish you this very much.
Take care!
September 19th, 2020  
@caterina Verona and Cortina - two really wonderful areas. One is an architectural gem, the other a scenic one. I would like to visit both, with my cloud I certainly do.
I send you nice greetings and wish you all the best.
September 20th, 2020  
@vesna0210 @dutchothotmailcom Thank you, Vesna and Esther, for your nice congrats! I wish you a good time with many beautiful moments.
September 20th, 2020  
You are so loved, Jerome. I have never seen so many comments of support and love. I understand why. Your photos and your kind comments bring so much depth to our community. Wishing you a gentle journey .... hope to see you and your amazing images back here very soon.
September 23rd, 2020  
@365karly1 Thank you, Karly, for your very nice words! I feel overwhelmed by so many kind responses from my dear followers. It really touches me a lot.

Thank you for your good wishes - I am very happy to take them with me on my trip.
Thank you for sharing your great pictures of Montana - a wonderful region with impressive landscapes!
I wish you all the best!
