Just Passing Through

A  L  O  H  A !

“You can only go 
halfway into 
the darkest forest. 
Then you are 
coming out 
the other side.”  
                           Chinese proverb

"Habits of thinking 
need not be forever. 
One of the most significant 
findings in psychology 
in the last 20 years is that 
individuals can choose 
the way they think" 
                            Martin Seligman

"There is never a better 
measure of what a 
person is than what 
he does when he's 
absolutely free to choose."
                         William M. Bulger

Linking to


Nobody is perfect.
No nation, either,
is without Mistakes.

But we continue
to move towards
our better aspirations
and so do nations.

As the birthday
of the United States
passes let us not focus
on mistakes and

Let us celebrate
the angels of
our better nature
as Lincoln said.

I love what America
is supposed to be
all about.

All we can do
is strive together
all over the world
till hatred is abolished.

Till our virtue's polished.

Till we all see 
a brother or sister,
and not skin color
or a uniform.

Let it begin
with me.


                      Fondly, cloudia

I do hope that in my lifetime we are able to see the whole world as a community. No us and them, but only us.

I wish the US was more about what it claims to be about.

Oh yes indeed! Spot on dear Cloudia. Your duck capture makes me think, "Let's fly over the road instead of taking our chances crossing it!" Quack, Quack!
