" I've looked at clouds from both sides now,
from up and down, and still somehow
it's cloud illusions I recall.
I really don't know clouds at all. "

                                                           [Get Better Joni]












" Once we believe in ourselves 
we can risk curiosity,
 wonder, spontaneous 
delight or any 
experience that reveals 
the human spirit.”  
                   E.E. Cummings












 " Like all great travelers,
 I have seen more
 than I remember, and 
remember more than 
I have seen. " 
                        Benjamin Disraeli





“ There would be no 
cloud-nine days 
without 
rock-bottom moments 
left below. ”

" Happiness is a sunbeam 
which may pass through 
a thousand bosoms 
without losing a particle 
of its original ray; nay, 
It is not perfected 
till it is shared. "
                          Jane Porter











I could just
look at the sky
[or the ceiling]
ALL day!

Calico Sky in My Eye

A  L  O  H  A !
Calico Sky
" Calico Pie,
The little Birds fly 
Down to the calico tree,
Their wings were blue,
And they sang "Tilly-loo!"
Till away they flew--
And they never came back to me! "
                       Edward Lear











" Most of the shadows 
of this life are
 caused by standing in
 one's own sunshine. "

Where Go You Today

A  L  O  H  A !
Where go You 

today?










To Work?

To Play?













You can have
 a bent bumper,
be handicapped,
but still put confetti
on your car!






“ People of our time 
are losing the power 
of celebration. 
Instead of celebrating 
we seek to be amused 
or entertained. 
Celebration is an active state, 
an act of 
expressing reverence 
or appreciation. . . "
                         Abraham Joshua Heschel



Thank You,
Friend!
