Red Crested Party Cardinal

A  L  O  H  A !

I used to think:
" Somewhere there is
a party."

All the witty people
are there,
Somewhere high
above the streets
above you and me.

Only Special People
are invited.

How badly I wanted
to be one of them!

I felt imprisoned 
in the 
Every Day.

Burning Yearning
filled me with 

But I have learned:
The Party is Everywhere!
All Around Us!
We are all invited!
Though not all attend.

Notice the colors,
Taste all the treats.

So many special people
to meet!

The party is right 

Don't miss it!


Thanks, Friends!
          Fondly, cloudia

What a great idea! Cloudia, you look a life as a philosopher of the good life. The red=crested cardinals are a treat for the eyes!

You beat me to it Cloudia - I had concluded and was going to comment that the party is everywhere.

We must be wise bloggy pals, mustn't we? Cheers ~ Eddie

Anywhere you are is special my lovely. xx

And once you have the party mindset, you actually become relieved that you don't have to waste your time at those exclusively, snobbish parties because the party around you is ever-so-much more fun!

Thank, you lovely friends 💜

I love your generosity in keeping open house at your party each and every day. Thank you.

It most certainly is right here! It's always the best of times too, whether we reflect deep or jump high with delight, this is our party! Aloha Cloudia and everyone else that joins us today.

Another good one, Cloudia!
Although I was invited and did attend a party this week high on a balcony looking out over the city!
