"What If" Up & Down

Aloha - WEEKEND!

"The torment of precautions
often exceeds
the dangers to be avoided.
  It is sometimes better to abandon one's self
to destiny."

Napoleon Bonaparte

"Prudence keeps life safe,
but does not often make it happy."

Samuel Johnson

"The healthy being craves an occasional wildness,
a jolt from normality, 
a sharpening of the edge of appetite, 
his own little festival of the Saturnalia,
a brief excursion 
from his way of life. "

Robert MacIver

"The knowledge of the world
is only to be acquired in the world,
and not in a closet."

Lord Philip Dormer Stanhope Chesterfield


What if?
Have you noticed
most of our 'what if's
are negative?

What if. . . ?
We all fill in that fearsome space.

That is 
"What If Down."

But what if GREAT things 
are just waiting to happen?
How would it change your internal weather
if your clouds were white and orange and puffy,
 speckled with
a smiling moon,
and singing with lovely

"What If Up."

We REALLY need this 
so TAKE it!

(Weather maps
show winds out of Japan
passing well north of our islands.
Nice for me, eh?)

Thanks for spending some time here with us!
This weekend,
practice your
"What If Ups."

What if something wonderful 
accepted your mental invitation!
Just muse on that for a while.

         Warmly, cloudia
