"How I do love the earth. 

I feel it thrill under my feet. -

- I feel somehow as if it 

were conscious of my love, 

This one is worth an enlarging 'click'

- as if something passed into 
my dancing blood from it."
James Russell Lowell


Thank YOU

People Doing the Dumb Things I Did

It is the cheapest of 
pleasures, costs nothing, 
and conveys much."

even change a life. -

- Your willingness to 
put it into words is 
all that is necessary."
                Margaret Cousins


Here's to the people
doing the stupid things
that I used to do.

Wish I could reach you,
would be great if 
I could teach you,
to show you, 
to KNOW you.

But I watch it go by
though little escapes 
my eye;
I send you with indulgence
and a little bit of grace
making peace with myself
over my own rudeness 
when I was coming from 
that very same place.

So there's hope for everyone.

The Bravest Wisest Age

A  L  O  H  A !
 Monday in the Pond with George

"I have reached an age when, 
if someone tells me to wear 
socks, I don't have to." 
            Albert Einstein

Einstein was up the road 
at Princeton when I was growing up in that area. Despite his genius, I do recall some people disapproving of  his habit of
not wearing socks. Even as I kid, I wanted to tell them: "He's a genius who's changed our world with his thoughts. What have YOU done with your proper attire?!"
Never did. Wanted too. Thinking about it now, this insight
is what gave me the courage to let my freak flag fly in many ways back in the "Hippie" days. Thank You Einstein!

Oh My Windy Windy Feathers

"How old would you be if you 
didn't know how old you was?" 
             Satchel Paige

Another One in the Books

"Too many people, 
when they get old, 
think that they have to 
live by the calendar." 
                          John Glenn 

US Senator (and pioneering astronaut)
Glenn went on a mission aboard 
the U.S. Space Shuttle at age 77

Here's to senior's.
They've been through a lot!
No one has the experience they've got.
Whoever, wherever; Deserving respect.
Zen like they savor This Minute - Today
with deep courage and gratitude 
just keeping along the way. 

Thank YOU

Belly Breathing

Don't Be Bittern

many faults is usually the 
first to criticize others."

the better will be his world 
and the world at large."

Look at a cat, dog
or baby resting.

They breathe from
the belly.

Research shows that
breathing that way
calms the nervous
system, So stop,
relax, and breathe.

Ah! Felt good!

Thanks for pausing
here in YOUR Day!
