Every Person

A L O H A !
Welcome Back To Virtual Hawaii-

"The mind I love must have wild places,
a tangled orchard
where dark damsons drop in the heavy grass,
an overgrown little wood, 
the chance of a snake or two, 
a pool that nobody's fathomed the depth of,
and paths threaded with flowers planted by the mind."

Katherine Mansfield

" No man is ever free,
and he couldn't stand it
if he was. "


Mother & Daughter     

" We relish news of our heroes,
forgetting that we are
to somebody too. "

Helen Hayes

" Only one letter
divides the comic
from the cosmic. "

Every person in your life
from parents, partners & children
to the guy in the next car
is a gift.
There are great,
and small,
Some come in 
strange packages.
But all are gifts.
How will you

             Thank YOU for being a gift in my life.  Share a comment!   cloudia

An overgrown wood with some water is as gift from God.

I will welcome them with open arms. Diversity is another gift to treasure. Loved this post Cloudia, but then I love all your posts.

Great. I suspect all of my gifts come in strange(ish) packing - but I love them anyway. Thanks.

What a calm and serene place that is in the 1st photo and the quote by Katherine Mansfield is spot on to :-).

Mama Zen said...

That Faulkner quote really made me think!

They otta legalize pakalolo (marijuana), if that's what the protest was about, or partially about. It sure would save a lot of money enforcing arcane laws and the sales tax revenue from pakalolo is a plus.

Love the mother and daughter photo Cloudia, they both have the same expression and body pose, and of course the words are so inspirational as always.

Cloudia said...
