Circus Girl

A  L  O  H  A !

“ It is difficult to 
see a situation 
for what it is 
when you are 
in the midst 
of it. ” 
                 Erin Morgenstem

“ You better get 
secretarial work 
or get married. ”
Emmeline Snively, 
[Director of 
Blue Book Modeling Agency, 
discouraging would-be model 
Marilyn Monroe, 1944]

“ This is not magic. 
This is the way 
the world is, 
only very few people 
take the time 
to stop 
and note it. ” 
                   Erin Morgenstern

So glad that YOU
swam by to visit today!

I think the 
whole point of Life
is to join
the right circus.

Thanks for laughing
at my antics!
[and for Your own]
                        Fondly, cloudia

I wish I was at that beach in your last photo right now...I'd snorkel all day!

Thank goodness most people, with their goals in mind, take the course of MM and make the most of what they have.

Always a pleasure Cloudia.. I'm rather partial to palm trees myself :)

Charles Gramlich said...

I'm in a pretty good circus.

TexWisGirl said...

love that tree!

Hilary said...

Another fine collection of images and quotes.

Teresa said...

I like the quote about getting a secretarial job or getting married juxtaposed with the picture of the construction worker. You have a quirky sense of humor. The picture of the tree is really beautiful, too.

Aloha Cloudia, beautiful old tree, and I like Erin's quotes a lot! Joining, the right circus indeed!

Life's a circus, or a party. It's certainly not a forced march.

Lovely images, Cloudia.. The last shot is gorgeous... Have a happy weekend!

William Kendall said...

Wise quotes by Erin, and what beautiful images!

Elephant's Child said...

Marilyn followed at least some of that advice. And I cannot see her being a successful secretary.
Hooray for circuses - but hold the clowns. Such sad things...

Kay said...

I love your circuses, Cloudia. It's so true about not being able to see clearly when you're in the midst of it.

Fireblossom said...

That first quote is the stone truth.

The Bastard King of England said...

Great truths!
