"With happiness 
comes intelligence
to the heart."

- Chinese proverb

 Which is bigger:
This Scooter-

Or this tiny (smart) car?

"Blame yourself 
if you have no branches or leaves; 
don't accuse the sun of partiality.
Be not afraid of growing slowly,
be afraid only of standing still."

- Chinese proverb

Don't stand still in this intersection!

I am about to reserve an ocean-view room in Hilo and one in Waikoloa!!! We'll be there in July. Woo-hoo!

christopher said...

The quotes that you post and the messages that you put forth are always well worth reading.

I'm sure the same is true of your book. I have a few in line ahead of this, but I plan on adding your novel to my list.

Beautiful post, Cloudia! Fantastic tree! About the Smart car, there are many here in Turin!

Beach Bum said...

I really like those smart cars, getting one might be the only way I can afford to get to the beach.

Cloudia said...

Smart cars in Turin...I'll dream about them...

Thanks to EACH of you for kindly visiting

If you stand still to long the grass will grow under your feet and then the smart car will run you over :-).

Ocean Girl said...

I love all the quotes and one advise! And I didn't realise that nice book cover was for your book! Awesome, congratulations Claudia.

Hattie said...

I just love your blog. There is some magic here.
Never forget: Life's a beach!

Maybe huge SUVs should be called Dumb Cars???

Hold my hand: a social worker's blog said...

Nice--very nice quotes. I love the pictures.

Cloudia, I didn't know you had a novel. I'm glad you mentioned it. I will check it out.

And thanks for stopping by, and for your wise comment. That particular case always comes to my mind. Two sweet elderly ladies, probably reliving their "best friends" or "sisters" childhood time. I told staff, a kiss is no harm. The feeling of companion, of human closeness remains there-forever, even if our minds are gone.

I prefer the car!

the walking man said...

I would have thought that intelligence brings happiness to the heart...at least I assume it works that way in the NSA.

keri said...

LOL great photos and food for thought. As usual, your simple messages give impact and make me calm. Aloha, Keri

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

Brian Miller said...

Charles Gramlich said...

I'd like me a little scooter.

I'll say the scooter is longer. ANd the sun is not partial. It shines on saint and sinner alike. No excuses. There are too many opportunities for those with eyes to see and ears to hear.

Hilary said...

That tree is a beauty with all its gnarly limbs. And love the colours of those lanterns too.

ileana said...

I like how you added your own images/mix to these quotes. Made me smile...like your book. Have I told you how much I enjoyed it?
