Mastering the Art of Living

A  L  O  H  A !
" If you see no reason
 for giving thanks, 
the fault lies 
in yourself. "
                   Native American Proverb, 
                                    Minquas, Susquehannock

"Beware of the half truth. 
You may have 
gotten hold of 
the wrong half." 

" To live lightheartedly 
but not recklessly; 
to be gay 
without being boisterous; 
to be courageous 
without being bold; 
to show trust 
and cheerful resignation 
without fatalism -
- this is the art of living. "

                          Jean De La Fontaine

That sparrow is a cute little bird. Enjoy the little experiences. Jean de la Fontaine said it so well! You obviously know how to get the best enjoyment out of life and are a philosopher.

Every quote a gem Cloudia, and your sweet little visitor in first shot is adorable.

I think that little sparrow is looking for a chat! What an incredible capture. I do hope he sat for a spell, how fun.

Living - or an existence. The first costs more and is worth immeasurably more.
