Cormorant & Pelican

A  L  O  H  A !
"A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His bill will hold more than his belican,
He can take in his beak
Enough food for a week
But I'm damned if I see how the helican!"
                Dixon Lanier Merritt (1910)

Pelicans fish close to the surface.
Cormorants swim long distances
 under the water hunting fish.
But they seem to work together,
or perhaps just enjoy the party!

"Fishing Party On The Lake"

"But what is happiness 
except the simple 
harmony between a 
person and the 
life he leads?" 

"Knowing who you are 
is the best defense against 
who they think you are."

"Kind words not only 
lift our spirits in the 
moment they are given, 

but they can linger 
with us over the years."

"So much of what we do 
is ephemeral and quickly
forgotten, even by ourselves, 
so it's gratifying to have 
something you have done 
linger in people's memories."

Not Selfish To Be Happy

A  L  O  H  A !
 Be Your Best
"Many a trip continues 
long after movement 
in time and space 
has ceased."

 Three Towers
"Someone once told me 
that human beings 
have three dimensions: 
how you see yourself, 
how others see you, and 
how you want others 
to see you. 
The closer the distance 
between the three dimensions, 
the more at peace you are and 
the more stable you become."
             Marwa Rakha

Turkey That Got Away
Happiness is not selfish.
Happiness can be a tool: 
Be Happy. Stay Happy 
and Inspire Others. 
Thank YOU

Let's Not Know Together

A  L  O  H  A !
"To have peace with 
this peculiar life; to 
accept what we do 
not understand; to 
wait calmly for 
what awaits us,
you have to be 
wiser than I am."
              M.C. Escher

"Dogs are often 
happier than men 
simply because the 
simplest things are 
the greatest things 
for them!"
       Mehmet Murat ildan

We don't know 
what might be.
So let's not know

Let's not squander
real peace of mind
on battles that may brew.

Happy Warriors know
that happiness and gratitude
call a power, an authority
that's moving hearts and minds
as arguments do not.

Stand down fellow sentinel
of truth. Fear Not. For we 
are the great ocean. And 
when the tides assert themselves 
we shall ride them to the 
shore in exultation. 

So rest
recover (your sofa) and
relax. Spend yourself on
your family this time of year.

Soon enough we march.
Not in indignation, but always
in fellow feeling and in hope.

That's why we are happy warriors.
And why we always win.
