A  L  O  H  A !
" My dream 
has always been 
to suspend myself in space 
when I write, and
 lying horizontal in bed 
is the closest 
to doing that. "
                        Richard Powers

" Not only is there a
  right to be happy,
 there is a 
duty to be happy. -

" - So much sadness 
exists in the world
 that we are all 
under obligation to 
as much joy as
 lies within our powers. "
                   John S. Bonnell

Can I play? 
Is THIS horizontal?
Does this count?
Am I happy? . . . 
[oh bother!]


Thank YOU!

That second quote reminded me of a billboard I saw in India. 'Life is a duty. Do it.'

Cloudia said...
