Early Morning Paddle

A  L  O  H  A !
" I'm a very early riser, 
and I don't like to miss 
that beautiful 
early morning 
light. "
                 David Hockney

“I hear lake water lapping 
with low sounds by the shore. . . .
I hear it in 
the deep heart's core.”
                   William Butler Yeats

There is more to life
 than increasing it's speed." 
                        Mahatma Gandhi

" Loud
gush the streamlets, 
but great rivers
 flow silently. "

" Adopt 
the pace of nature:
 her secret
 is patience. "
                 Ralph Waldo Emerson

" True happiness...
 arises, in the first place, 
from the enjoyment
 of one's self. "
Joseph Addison

" Be still like a mountain
 and flow like a great river. "
 Lao Tzu

Thank YOU
for floating by!
             Warmly, cloudia

there is music just under the surface, in the light, in the water, that if we slow down enough, we will hear....

Great rivers flow silently. I often wish I was a great river.

Wish I could be like Hockney. Ah, to be a lark and not a night owl.
