Orange You Glad

Orange by Cell on Grooveshark

" Try not thinking 
of peeling
an orange.

Try not imagining 
the juice running down your fingers, 
the soft inner part of the peel. 

The smell.

Try and you can't. 

The brain doesn't process 
negatives. "
Doug Coupland

" whatever is true,
whatever is noble,
whatever is right,
whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely,
whatever is admirable

—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—

think about THOSE things."

 Philippians 4:8

" This itself 
is the whole of the journey:
opening your heart 
to that which is lovely.
  This is the way
you must train yourself: 
closely observe and embrace 
all states of mind
that are
good. "


It is GOOD
to see you here!

Thank YOU

I guess I should have bought those oranges at the grocery store. Just got back and lo and behold forgot my wallet. Never done that in years. Perhaps, it was an one of those things to save money.

Even the open heart can not want to ignore the reality of others not so learned in the art of Dharma and oranges.

The good word: Buy Low, Sell high. And the oranges on our orange tree are almost ready for picking. A couple more weeks should do it.

Love your orange Hawaii. Those little "cutie" small oranges are a little burst of sweet sunshine and so easy to peel. DrumMajor
