WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – HUMANITY

Merriam-Webster’s definition of HUMANITY

: the quality or state of being human
: the quality or state of being kind to other people or to animals
: all people

A melting pot of visitors converge every day to see one of New Jersey’s most famous boardwalks. Hotels, casinos, shops, food, food, and more food attracts lots of folks to the Atlantic shore of the 3rd state  – December 18, 1787 – the 47th in size.  New Jersey, noted for it’s farming (blueberries to name just one glorious fruit!) and it’s pharmaceutical industry, is also famous for its beaches and, as seen here, the boardwalk of Atlantic City.

And Buddha had a few words to say himself.

“Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.” ~ Buddha

Buddha. Ya gotta love the man. He keeps it simple.

  1. That’s a LOT of humanity, and I expect there’s even more of it on holiday weekends. The boards have a weird optical illusion from that angle. At least I THINK it’s an optical illusion! Buddha has got it going on, but “kind speech” is a tough nut for me, sometimes….

  2. Fabulous shot of the boardwalk. I visited when I was a very little girl. I don’t remember much about the trip as a whole, but I *do* remember the boardwalk. It was summer and very warm. I held on to my Dad’s hand. It was the only big trip all four kids ever took with him and right at the time of my parent’s divorce. It is funny the things we remember as children. Pretty cool that you used this place. And you really do have to love the simplicity of Buddha!
