A   L   O   H   A  !
" Keep away from people
 who try to belittle
 your ambitions. 
Small people 
always do that, 
but the really great 
make you feel 
that you, too, 
can become great. "

Mark Twain

" Do not be afraid of defeat.

 you are never so near victory 

as when  defeated 

in a good cause. "

Henry Ward Beecher

"I have found power

 in the mysteries

 of thought."


" I've been on a calendar

 but I have never been 

on time."

Mark Twain was a wise man! Thanks for your quotes! Thanks also for your comment on my homeward voyage on the New Amsterdam. I finally managed to put the photos on Face Book, but there are photos I want to delete and I can't do it. FB is still a more difficult medium for me than my blog.

I've sure had my writing belittled plenty of times. Hurt at first, but now I tend to be able to resist it.

The dog is so cute. The quotes wise. And unlike Marilyn, I've never been on a calendar, but I'm always late.
Happy Day.

Happy Monday. We were out walking our neighbors' dog on Saturday at about 10:00 a.m. and everything around us looked like your photos! Just that bright. Wish I'd thought to bring a camera with me.

That last one made me laugh out loud. I love these thoughts. Makes me think, "Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right." That's on Andy Pettitte's wall!
