Doubt Unmasked

A   L   O   H   A !

" Life
is the art
of drawing without
an eraser. "

John W. Gardner

Even the crab likes some shade!

" I am learning all the time.
The tombstone
will be my diploma. "

Eartha Kitt

Beyond the Shadow of a Leaf...

" If a man speaks or acts
 with a pure thought,
 happiness follows him,
 like a shadow that never leaves ".


Oh to Be in a Green Place!

"We read the world wrong
and say that it deceives us. "

Rabindrath Tagore 

   > < } } ( ° >

If you are in doubt
Realize that it means
that you are under stress.

Stress is a bad way
to discover wisdom.

So breathe,
pause, de-stress.

Then you will be able
to proceed

All on a Summer's day.

     Warmly, cloudia

Like the Eartha Kitt quote because your never to old to learn something new. When i first seen the photo above the Buddha quote i thought is was a shadow of a human rib cage :-).

Wise and true quote from Eartha Kitt but for me she will always be the true and supremely sexy Cat Woman.

Will take your advice Cloudia...starting from tomorrow!!

the walking man said...

If you doubt an action before you do it then don't do it, if you regret it afterwards then you have learned to listen to your doubts. It's all good.

The Weaver of Grass said...

Without an eraser indeed Cloudia. It is always good to remember that.
