Mindlessly Melding

A  L  O  H  A !
" Serve human beings
not ideology."
                  Pope Francis

" Give advice; 
if people don't listen, 
let adversity teach them. " 
                           Ethiopian Proverb

" The noun of self 
becomes a verb. "
                     Stephen Nachmanovitch


Sometimes we
get the best results
by turning off
the brain.

Dancing! Wooing!
Fro-ing - Too-ing!
Some things
go better
without too much

And the things
we ought to ponder?
On automatic 
all the time!

It might DO 
to reconsider
0ur Ways we  
think Just Fine.

Life is rich & complex.
Dare to let it be -

Turn off the brain,
walk in the rain,
and find your 
child's knowing 
in your belly
once again.

Thank YOU
for dancing with
us here!
Fondly, cloudia

Aloha Cloudia, lovely images and quotes. Pope Francis is a smart man! I enjoyed your poem and the words, it is time to let our inner child out. Enjoy your day and the new week ahead!

I would give anything to switch off the brain, especially at night when I'm trying to sleep :) lovely 'Hawaiian' skies Cloudia.

And you can see why Republicans don't like Pope Francis

Such lovely skies!

Better mindlessly melding than mindless meddling.

Aloha Cloudia, strong, meaningful quotes, and I find the shadows in your first photo so genius in the taking! Not at all what one normally would catch. Bravo.

I think that when the Pope said that Fidel lost yet another hair from his beard! :-)

My brain decides for itself when and whether it will switch on and off. Which can be a scary ride.
Love your skies.
