In the Waiting: Beautiful Contemplative Photography by Alex Greenshpun




A Day In the Life


The Little Tiger






“I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope
For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love,
For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith
But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.
Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought:
So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.”
~ T. S. Eliot










“We know what we mean by white in comparison with black. We know life in comparison with death. We know pleasure in comparison with pain, up in comparison with down. But all these things must come into being together. You don’t have first something and then nothing or first nothing and then something. Something and nothing are two sides of the same coin. … The nothing is the force whereby the something can be manifested. … Nothing is what brings something into focus.”
~ Alan Watts
