Comfort of a Friend

A    L    O    H    A  !

"  Rest is not idleness, 
and to lie sometimes 
on the grass on a summer day 
listening to the murmur 
of water, 
or watching
the clouds float 
across the sky, 
is hardly
 a waste of time. "

Sir John Lubbock

" I realize that humor
 isn't for everyone.
 It's only for people 
who want to have fun, 
enjoy life, 
and feel alive. "

Anne Wilson Schaef 

" The comfort 
of having a friend 
may be taken away, 
but not that of 
having had one. "

Thanks for visiting!
                              Warmly, cloudia

I'm confused with people who don't want to have fun and laugh. I could hide behind that huge leaf and spy on the world going by. DrumMajor

Cloud watching is never a waste of time, or if it is many people waste time :) If only more people had a sense of humour things may be different.

Laughter is the best medicine :) I know we can't laugh and smile all the time but it's nice to be able to let go and enjoy a good old-fashioned guffaw!


I love that second Schaef quote! (And also happy that blogger is letting me comment here again:) The vivid colors make me smile too.

Seneca's quote in particular is very wise.
