A  L  O  H  A !

"If our early lessons of 
acceptance were as 
successful as our 
early lessons of anger, 
how much happier
we would all be."
                Peter McWilliams

"The days you are most uncomfortable are 
the days you learn the 
most about yourself."
                    Mary L. Bean

"Happiness is not a matter 
of intensity but of balance, 
order, rhythm and harmony."
                  Thomas Merton

Mt. Diablo

It's like I say:
you climb the mountain.
Sometimes the
mountain climbs you.

But isn't it great:
we get to have
mountains to
bring awe to
our days!

Hope you enjoy
YOUr view today-
                  Fondly,  cloudia

I like your version much better than the one which is more common here.
'Sometimes you are the dog, and other days the firehydrant.'
Love the view from here.

Another saying is, "Sometimes you're the hammer. Sometimes you're the nail".

It seems most people don't find acceptance until it is forced upon them.

Great pictures and wonderful quotes. My favorite is the Merton one. I'm not sure I would like to be climbed by a mountain, not even a small one...

Mount Diablo really appeals to me!

Great close-up of the bird's head. The different sky and water colors are especially beautiful.
