Watching the Parade

A  L  O  H  A !
My Flower - My Feet

" Every flower is a
soul blossoming 
in nature."
                    Gerard de Nerval

Which should I take today?

"You should never 
attribute to malice that 
which is adequately 
explained by stupidity."   
                               Hanlon's razor
















"Some claim conspiracy, 
when it is only the times 
changing in ways 
that they find 
upsetting."

If you are fortunate 
to live long enough, a
lot of what you know 
will become obsolete.

 That's why it's important 
to keep a 'beginners mind' 
in many ways. 

But you will also 
come to realize 
that being in the know
 about EVERYTHING in
our rapidly changing world
is a fruitless Sisyphean task. 

In time, we 
become wise enough 
to let some things go, 
to let some things 
pass unremarked. 

The important thing is 
to retain the wisdom 
to know when and how 
to speak, strive, or act 
at the right time. 

Thank YOU
for Hanging Here
a While! Comment?

Take the fork lift. Nobody will get in your way. If they do , lift them to the curb.

Aloha Cloudia, you are spot on today, for me. Just a bit of Sisyphean tasks I must learn to let go of!

Hello Cloudia, I love the flower, pretty bloom. I am trying to picture you riding in a forklift, I would take the corvette. Happy Wednesday, I hope you have a great day!

A beginner's mind is a good idea. Keep learning.

I'll keep that good advice in mind in the future.

That is a strikingly beautiful, yet delicate flower.

Love that the colours of your flower are echoed on your feet.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

If you hadn't said "feet" I might've thought they were petals that dropped.
