A Leaf Fluttered In

A  L  O  H A !

" A person 
places themselves 
on a level 
with the ones 
they praise. "


" A leaf fluttered in
 through the window this morning,
 as if supported
 by the rays of the sun, 
a bird settled 
on the fire escape, 
joy in the task of coffee,
 joy accompanied me 
as I walked. "

Anais Nin 

" A morning-glory 
at my window 
satisfies me more
 than the 
metaphysics of books. "

Walt Whitman 


Thank YOU!

The Anais Nin and Walt Whitman quotes are very inspiring! And I love that orange-tinged cloud! I hope your day in Hawaii will be as colorful and inspiring as the thoughts you shared!

Holy smokes: it IS a plane!
The beautiful window reminds me of the imprisoned Queen's view from Iolani Palace.
Ooooh, I'd love one of those spidery white flowers in my hibiscus garden.

Walt is so right, and that open window you posted is beyond beautiful. What a way to greet the morning. If I could ever have conversations over coffee with any author, alive or dead, Nin would be one of them!
