Karma Burners

A  L  O  H  A    from   Honolulu!
" If it's a good idea
go ahead and do it.
It's much easier to
apologize, than it
is to get permission. "
                              Grace Hopper
        American computer scientist,
  1.              United States Navy rear admiral
  2. A pioneer in the field, 
  3.                       she was one of the first programmers 
  4.                             of the Harvard Mark I computer in 1944-"
  5.                                              Wikipedia

" Love doesn't 
 just sit there,
 like a stone,
 it has to be made, 
like bread, remade
 all the time, 
made new. "
                 Ursula K LeGuin

" Praise works with 
only three types 
of people; men, 
women, and 
children. " 

End of Day Has It's Say

“Courage doesn't always roar. 
Sometimes courage is 
the quiet voice 
at the end of the day 
saying, "I will try
 again tomorrow.”
                          Mary Anne Radmacher 

Linking to


Karma Burners
are those annoying
problems & issues
that get under your 

You can't
stop worrying over
them, but in the 
Big Picture
your life will go on
however they resolve.

Not true emergencies
they are the equivalent
of moral push-ups;
Opportunities for
gratitude. Yes,
life must be OK
if such a small irritant
so big.

Strategy: LAUGH

Thanks for
Laughing here!
                          Fondly, cloudia

The star burst in the third photo caught my attention right away. Nice photos and words to ponder.

I definitely agree with the 'don't sweat the small things' feel of this post Cloudia.. beautiful images to compliment wise quotes.

Nancy Chan said...

I love the blue sky, end of the day has its say. Beautiful quotes about courage.

Karen S. said...

That is so true about those little things in life! Aloha, may happiness always follow you!

TexWisGirl said...

good advice to lighten up. :) loved the 'praise' one.

Teresa said...

I guess that quote means that praise doesn't work for cyborgs... or cats, maybe. It certainly works for dogs. I love the donut statue.

The small irritants don't bother me unless the big things are going wrong. Then they can be the straw that broke the camel's back

Young at Heart said...

...and a change is as good as a rest!!

William Kendall said...

Wonderful quotes, and glorious shots!

Giga said...

Beautiful pictures of the sky and saying Ursula K LeGuin. Regards.

RedPat said...

Another 'good quotes for me' day, Cloudia!

Birdman said...

Trouble is----- I apologize a lot these days. Shoot before I aim sometimes. Can be embarrassing. What the heck!

LOLfromPasa said...

Best strategy ever as you suggest - laughter.

Elephant's Child said...

One of our politicians has claimed Grace Hopper's quote as his own. Sadly, too often, only he thinks his ideas are good.
Love Ursula LeGuins quote - and laughter. Lots and lots of laughter.
