Appointed Continents

Pink Cloud - Cobalt Cloud:  Morning


What do you do

the day

after

the holidays

?













Early birds at the Beach


















Ships keep their appointed rounds,
charted on some desk far away,
to meet a shipment,
itself in movement
to that meeting,
plotted in a
different office
on a different
continent.










Hawaiians of old

sailed in double-hulled,

two-masted canoes

following the stars:

arriving
departing
founding kingdoms;

Bringing new ideas

and plants,

like bloggers

of the sea.











Steersman steer,
call the stroke;
ride along
you lazy bum!












" Day After?"
Wonders dear Birdy.
"Isn't TODAY All? "


" The creation
of the world
did not take place
once
and for all time,
but
takes place
every day. "

Samuel Beckett
-=-=-=-


Who am I
to disagree
particularly
during the 
dying embers
of another
year. . .

Aloha Cloudia! Hope you are having a great season! Sorry for the absence, but 2012 was definitely a difficult year here in Portugal, and even worse for me...
Wish you a very Happy 2013, and enjoy Grenada in Blogtrotter Two!

The day after Christmas was even hotter and busier than the day itself, Cloudia..when you have a pool in hot weather it can get hectic..but fun !!

P.s. the lemon lime and bitters was 'straight'.40C and alcohol don't agree with each other haha!

I have been noticing the strange looking characters at the end of the comments you have left here and there lately. I also noticed that > < 3 3 3 ( ' > was left at the end of this piece, and I am wondering what is going with that? That is, if you do not mind saying, of course.

Da boat is heavy at the back; empty boat? Isn't today's birdie unique: pink eyes and feet, and a bit pale? Goof off on day after holiday; best recovery. DrumMajor

Since the roads are still bad, I'll take the day to read blogs and take down some decorations....glad when that task is completed.

Charles Gramlich said...

I sleep in the day after holidays. Or try.

Aloha Cloudia, My morning after I shared the song Happy, Day After Christmas-(to shut-ins too)with, the light of the world, by Matthew West (glorious song) then what work must be done-followed by a movie with a few loved ones,(not tied up in the daily grind)and treasuring every moment, never wanting to be sorry. That includes all my animal friends too. :)

Po Świętach będzie szara rzeczywistość, ale świat i tak jest piękny. Pozdrawiam.
Gray after Christmas will be a reality, but the world and it is beautiful. Yours.

Gina Duarte said...

We always try to get to a museum the day after Christmas, with as many family and friends as we can gather at once.

Love the Becket quote.

Love, love!

Cloudia said...

Ah the fish like triple three? Just silly fun! Thanks for being gifts under the tree today!

Carrie said...

After the holiday, we just relax and eat left overs! We prepare for the next upcoming holiday which is New Years! =)

I hope you enjoy the upcoming year, 2013!

Be safe! ♥

I was very lazy day on Boxing Day. Thanks for being our gift under the Christmas Tree Cloudia. I love that saying.

LOLfromPasa said...

Well this is an easy question to answer, Cloudia. I am trying to catch up reading wonderful blogs like yours :). Hope you had a lovely Christmas.

I love the idea of "like bloggers of the sea." :)

Quote by Samuel Beckett gets my vote. What do you do the day after the holidays?, Recover the best way ya can!.

Adam said...

I either work or enjoy my gifts the day after

The Elephant's Child said...

I look for peace in the small things - the birds, the cats, the garden. I hunker down with my Christmas books. Lucky.

Brian Miller said...

Oh, this has been a wonderful post again and I love ALL the pix! Wish I could be there instead in our wet and cold grayness. Just started freezing again; at least the world glitters nicely here now.

Enjoying that from year to year, celebrations become quieter and with lesser presents.

Please have you all a good Friday.

Carol said...

Isn't it funny how you hear something over and over. I keep hearing that God is still here and the story is not finished. Why not?

G-Man said...

Thank You Oh Princess of Positive!
Your daily affirmations are always an inspiration.
You Rock The Big Island, and parts of Maui...:P:P
Have a Kick Ass New Year...G
