Just Sometimes

A  L  O  H  A !
" No great discovery 
was ever made 
without a bold guess. " 

" Dwelling on the negative 
simply contributes 
to its power. "
                   Shirley MacLaine

" Life is too 
deep for words,
 so don't try 
to describe it, 
just live it. "
              C.S. Lewis

Rather strange words 
for a novelist and 
essayist on 
the deepest topics!
Wouldn't you say?


despite my best efforts, 
my head spins faster 
and faster like a toy, 
then it goes flying off 
in some random direction. 

it flies quite far, and 
always unpredictably. 

Happy to report that
 I have retrieved my head 
and it is now sitting 
back on my neck, 
though not securely 
fastened as of yet. 

It remains a bit wild. . . . 

Fortunately years and years 
of being 'over sensitive' 
have given me ample 
opportunity to develop 
skills that even the 
most even tempered 
require from time to time. 

When my head flies 
around the corner 
like Daffy Duck, 
I know what to do, 
and often 
even DO IT! 

So here's to life, 
occasionally over-stimulating life!

Long may I wave. 

And look! 
I can see YOU 
waving back to me!  

                  Fondly, cloudia

I so agree that dwelling on the negative adds to its power. Hope you are thinking positive today! ;)

Hello Cloudia, beautiful skies and lovely images! The quotes are so true. Any negative thinking is bad, I try to think positive thoughts. Have a happy Monday and new week ahead!

Keeping your head on your neck? Isn't it in danger out there? I like to keep mine in a locked safe. I seldom use it anyway.

Cloudia said...

Thanks SO much - each of You!

Love the skies and the quotes especially Shirley MacLaine's, Cloudia!

Halcyon said...

Such beautiful skies! Happy Monday. :)

I can remember a roadside sign I saw in India many years ago. 'Life is a duty. Do it.'
Which doesn't capture the joy and the wonder, but leaves no room for analysing...
Love the views your sensitive heart and soul captures and shares.

Yep, I'm here waving back to you too, and I sure hope your head won't fall off any time soon!

good quotes

Small Kucing said...

I would say Lewis is right. Think too much there will be complications. Just live the life.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

I can relate to what Lewis said. Definitely. Writing is my profession. I go through periods where I think I want a job, such as driving a shuttle bus.

The world needs sensitive souls! Love your shots and that middle quote about negativity is spot on.
