Dissolving Morphing Wheel in the Sky

A  L  O  H  A !
Wheel in the Sky by Journey on Grooveshark
"You have to know how to

 accept rejection 

and reject acceptance."


        Ray Bradbury










" No mind is

 thoroughly well-organized

 that is deficient 

in a sense of humor. "


Samuel Taylor Coleridge

























" Certainly, it takes some amount
 of attention and energy. 
But in smiling at strangers,
 I acknowledge their humanity,
 and in doing that,
 in reminding myself of it,
 I promote peace. 
How? 
By bringing joy to others 
that's far out of proportion 
to the investment required. "

 Alex Lickerman, M.D

Such beautiful colors! And a moving thought by Ray Bradbury.

Seems to me I read something similar about a cab driver coming to the same understanding. Piku 9

When I smile at strangers, it seems they wonder what I've been up to! Your little wheelie cloud is a tiny cloud pretending to grow into a hurricane, but he isn't that mean. Your Hawaii clouds have colors that are not in the official big box of Crayons! DrumMajor

Beautiful blue images Cloudia, Hawaii and Perth go together like strawberries and cream :))

Aloha Cloudia, I'm with you on smiling my day away again, today! Yesterday, wasn't enough for me! :)

Birdman said...

Like Ray's quote. That coming from a guy who spent a lot of his off time in outer limits. Ha!

TexWisGirl said...

lovely skies, dear!

Myrna R. said...

Like that last quote. And those skies, wow. It takes no effort to smile when I'm on this blog. Happy Sunday!

Charles Gramlich said...

I'm usually living so far inside my head I hardly notice people around me. I need to try and do better at that.

Willow said...

Stopping in to say "Hello" and see your beauty here today sweet Cloudia.
Smiling,
Willow

So true about needing a sense of humor.
