Let's Ride

A l o h a !
click on photos to muse dreamily
The Sky is so Vast!

" Great events
make me quiet and calm;
it is only trifles
that irritate my nerves. "

                           Queen Victoria











My heart is so tiny- 
but the Love it contains
reaches to the skies.


" The way is not in the sky.
The way is in the heart. "
                                    Buddha









" We shall draw from 
the heart of suffering 
itself the means of 
inspiration and survival.  "
                Winston Churchill



We each paddle our skin canoe.
Conditions change day to day,
minute to minute.
Will there be a paradise cove, 
surrounded by a loving reef,
containing sweet water?

Unseen, a Helper paddles behind us.
The waters around us are tipped
with the gold of Spirit.

But life's brine
brings on a mighty thirst;
so paddle, paddle. . . 
rest and paddle some more!




Like that clown punching-bag
somehow I return upright
to peace and beauty every time.
(Eventually)


You are not alone.

Sometimes it just takes us 
a little while to feel good again,
to stop focusing on all the "issues"
and to rediscover
the eternal hum of loving truth
underlying everything.



Perhaps all I need
is to rest a while,
to dream,
to stare,
even to hide away.

Isn't that how friends are made?

By being yourself?

Let's be human together!

Let's make this
a day of heart and
of new beginnings:
I salute you, 
my friend!


Life is made of circles,
of seasons, 
of weather inside 
and weather out there.

Let's ride the Comfort Spiral
together!

And if you have the time,
leave me a comment.


For we are blessed 
to feed each other.
           Warmly,  Cloudia
