Obvious Extraordinaire

A  L  O  H  A !
A Cliche` is Something 
that has lasted
because it is
Fundamentally True.

Though it Seems
Obvious & Trivial 
Until the day
that the Truth of it 
Strikes You. 

“When you play, [music]
never mind who
 listens to you.” 
                     Robert Schumann

[I like the mother's reaction 
and the kid in back
looking the other way,
like a cherub in an old
painting of an event]

"It takes an extraordinary 
intelligence to 
contemplate the obvious." 
Alfred North Whitehead


That's us:
teasing the extraordinary
out of the every day!
Thank YOU
for bringing YOUR
              Fondly, cloudia
