As You Once Did

A L O H A !
DO Listen [Trust Me]
" If 
you pass 
by the colour purple
 in a field 
and don't notice it, 
God gets 
real pissed off. "

Alice Walker

" Are not flowers
 the stars of the earth,
 and are not our stars
 the flowers
 of the heaven? "

A.J. Balfour 

" All objects lose
 by too familiar
 a view. "

John Dryden 

What Familiar person,
thing, or situation
do YOU no longer
as you once did?

Is it Yourself?

" If seeds 

in the black earth

 can turn into such

 beautiful roses,

 what might not

 the heart of man become

 in its long journey

 toward the stars?  "

G.K. Chesterton

Depends on the man and the what is encountered on the journey.

Love those quotes, especially the G. K. Chesterson one. Believe me, I'll notice those purple flowers in the future.

Lovely flowers, some of life's gifts.

Peace and aloha! Have a smooth ride today.

In truth I really do like me. It's some thoughts/people/situations I let in which aren't important and must be evicted, now. Like, Keeping up with the Joneses! I stopped years ago...a very wise choice. If it's important to me, it must be meaningful somewhere else as well, right?

Flowers and stars, what beautiful things God speckles around us.
There are probably so many things I don't appreciate as I once did. But there are many I appreciate more and more as time passes. Family, friends, nature, my dogs. I'm grateful. Your quotes and pics - I appreciate them too, more each day. Thank you Cloudia.

Cloudia said...

Each of your comments are like blossoms dropping on me from the winds of the whole world!

Thanks very much Each :-)

Friko said...

I have never appreciated myself!

On a lighter note: I hardly ever fully appreciate the beauty of the countryside around me.

Elephant's Child said...

Like Friko, I have never appreciated myself. And think that some of the world's problems stem from people who appreciate themselves rather too well.
I love your flowers - and the linkage to the stars. Thank you.

I love portulaca. I planted some, but soon it will go the way of my plants, frozen in winter.
It's been a chilly day.
I've enjoyed your quotes.

Apple pie. Definitely. And the taste of tea on a cold morning.

Sweet Saturday to you Cloudia .

Teresa said...

Now I will have to always be on the look out for purple flowers in the fields... Have a great weekend!

I heard the pink flowers (and they are many colors of them) are called "10 o'clock flowers". They blossom when the sun rises and sleeps towards the afternoon/evening/night until the next morning sun rise !

Cloudia said...

I get such pleasure reading your comments!

Thanks EACH of You

Kay said...

I really love the akulekule plant. I suppose part of it is because I do love the color purple. Have a great Sunday, Cloudia. said...

Magic. Thanks

Cloudia said...

Thanks for naming the plant, Kay!

Nice to see you here, dear Ilsa

I notice purple; it's Kansas State University's color! Everything is purple: the bleacher seats, even the trash bins throughout town. DrumMajor
