A Holiday Secret

A   L   O   H   A  !
Christmas Island by Ella Fitzgerald on Grooveshark
' Photographer's Back '

" Happiness always
 looks small 
when you hold it 
in your hands,
 but let it go, 
and you learn 
at once 
how big 
and precious it is." 

Gorky







" Change happens
 by listening and
 then starting a dialogue 
with the people who 
are doing something 
you don't believe
 is right. " 

Dr. Jane Goodall










" Every child
 is born a naturalist. 
His eyes are, by nature,
 open to the glories
 of the stars, the beauty of
 the flowers, 
and the mystery 
of life. "

R. Search

Here's a Holiday Secret
from me to You:
Everyone is so busy
that you can slip away
and do something indulgent
For YOURself!

I hope you will

Thanks for visiting!
Warmly, cloudia

For one of the very few times in my life I no longer control my destiny. I have nothing I wish to indulge in except blankness of mind and spirit.

Love that R Search quote. And the idea of a little self indulgence. What do you have planned?

EG CameraGirl said...

I agree with Goodall that it's important to listen before beginning the dialogue.

If I can't have the beach, I'll indulge in a plumeria-scented bubble bath!
