A Small King

A   L   O   H   A  !
" Little, vicious minds
abound with anger and revenge,
and are incapable of feeling
the pleasure
 of forgiving their enemies. "

Earl of Chesterfield

" The soul of conversation
 is sympathy. "

Thomas Campbell

" Oh, marvelous me!
For I am the ruler of
all that I see! ”

Dr. Suess
Yertle the Turtle

" One touch of
 makes the whole world
 kin. "
William Shakespeare, 
Troilus and Cressida


Walking along
I looked,
then looked again:
a tiny face
was looking back.

The world is full
of friends
if we only
notice them.

So, he lives in a "lighthouse?" Ahh, smart gecko: the light fixture atracts bugs. Don't mean to be racist, but I like the green geckos better. The real ones are cuter than the Geico gecko. DrumMajor

I had a similar little face looking at me today also Cloudia, through the fly wire on the door, so sweet.. Dr Suess rules!!

Oh I love that little lizard, and the way you notice the little faces.

(How I'd love to sit and have a cup of coffee with you. But, I won't be going to Honolulu. I'll be in Maui and Hawaii (the Big Island). If there's any way, let me know.)

I was in need of a little 'wisdom' and you never disappoint, Cloudia. Lovely series, again!

Very nice quotes to accompany that lovely gecko sticking his head out. We have a few geckos in our house, they come out at night!

Lovely post, Cloudia. Love that gecko. :)

You have a good eye to capture this little cutie. I must say I didn't notice him in the previous pic.
