Roll On Catharsis

A  L  O  H  A !

"  The thing 
that is really hard,
 and really amazing,
 is giving up 
on being perfect
 and beginning the 
work of
becoming yourself. "
                                          Anna Quindlen

" There is nothing like
 returning to a place
 that remains unchanged
 to find the ways
 in which you 
have altered. "
                    Nelson Mandela

"Butterfly Chasing Moon 
Through Silk Waves"

River roll on
Don't provocate
Just keep running
Catharsis will come.

Sooner or later

All that's left
Is the flavor
Of how You

Deescalate! Flow on!

O River
Looking for


hurricanes pass,
tsunamis peter out,
life's storms always break
sooner or later.

We come out 
the other side
awed, & cleansed.

So Celebrate, Friends!
Roll On
                          Fondly, cloudia

Great post.
I totally agree with Ann Q's quote.
Learning who we are is the key.

Lovely skies. Is that the moon or the sun?

Glad to hear the storm danger has passed.

Cloudia said...


Thanks friends!

Reminds me of a joke: "Is that the sun or the moon?"
"I don't know - I'm new around here."

The Mandela quote is very wise!

RedPat said...

Glad the storms have passed! I gave up being perfect a while ago. ;-)

Su-sieee! Mac said...

That's an interesting Mandela quote. When I returned to Hollister after 30+ years, I found that I didn't change but evolved into the person who I am. If I had not left, I truly think I would've altered who I am for the worse. I like your photo of the tree a lot. Something very strong and courageous about it.

Love, love, love that tree photo.
And Mandela.
