Case for Space Case

A  L  O  H  A !

"I like life. It's something to do."

        Ronnie Shakes

" Appreciation is a wonderful thing:
 It makes what is excellent in others
 belong to us as well. "


" Prejudices
 are what fools use
 for reason. "


  > <  }  }  ( ° >        

How busy we are getting it "Done"
rushing to "Correct."

We seldom even notice 
what life is brightly showing 
 right before our eyes.

Others do not hear
what we tell them;
They are on to the
Next Thing.
Just like we are.

How often do we miss
fresh breezes
of a new "Aha?"

We seek an image 
native only to our minds,
blind to ripe real 
treasures all around.

Friend my friend
allow a Sacred Space.

Permit holy delay;

Wait for an Angel to pass.

Nature always fills a vacuum.
So learn to leave a space.

Mine is right between my ears :-)

"Others do not hear
what we tell them." No truer words were spoken and I'm often guilty myself.

Most folks seem to lose the cork and can't regain the vacuum nature naturally will fill.

Why do you have a Zamboni driving the Holu?

The Shakes quote is simple enough. And timely, some days.

Our backyard is a sacred space today!

that was wonderful. love the painterly clouds in the first - and your message to just stop, breathe and look around. :)

I will certainly try to leave extra room for the space.

Teresa said...

Great post that belies the claim to only space between your ears. Plenty of gray matter there, too, Ma'am.

Cloudia said...

Thanks each Each of YOU!
Yes, isn't that a cute little street sweeper?

Filip and Kristel said...

That's a strange cleaning car.


Bob Bushell said...

Lovely, the photos and the quotes, far out Cloudia.

Erika said...

Un caro saluto dall'Italia, cara Cloudia!:))))


That second photo, especially, really made me think of home in Hon, HI!:) How wise these words, taking a little space in our everyday...

Myrna R. said...

That space between your ears is truly sacred. Thanks for this reminder to stop and listen, watch. Your photos make me do that.

The Elephant's Child said...

I believe that the space between YOUR ears is very small. Love the Voltaire quotes - and all of your photos. Thank you.
