New Day

“ You can become blind
 by seeing each day
as a similar one.

Each day is a
different one, 

each day brings 
a miracle of its own. 

It's just a matter of 
paying attention 
to this miracle.” 

Paulo Coelho

Monstera Unfolding
" All the way
Heaven. "

Teresa of Avila

Monstera Unfurled
“ Every day should be passed 
as if it were to be our last.”

 Publilius Syrus 

Monstera & Sandal
“ Life is
 far too important
 a thing 
ever to talk 
seriously about. ”

 Oscar Wilde

Fairy Pulpit

“ I still find each day
 too short 
for all the thoughts
 I want to think, 
all the walks 
I want to take, 
all the books I want to read, 
and all the friends 
I want to see. ”

 John Burroughs

" - Or all the Friends' Blogs

“ When I stand before thee
 at the day's end,
 thou shalt see
 my scars and know
 that I had my wounds 
and also my healing. ”

 Rabindranath Tagore

I hope this day will be unique, beautiful, and a pleasure for you, Cloudia. Such lovely pictures, and great thoughts to ponder. I especially liked the ones by St. Teresa of Avila and Publius Syrus.

Aloha from NC.

This hit home more than you know ~ a horrific tragedy unfolded in slow motion before my eyes this past weekend ...only to turn into an amazing miracle . Never take a day for granted to be just another day ~ each day contains it own new wonderment.

Mahalo for unfurling your wisdom and beautiful photos. The lizard's got a translucent leg, and a friendly UFO I specked in the sunset. The white flower reminds me of a famous artist's painting. DrumMajor

Excellent combo of words and pics. The Syrus quote is a home run--when will I take that advice? Tomorrow morning!
