A  L  O  H  A !
"And now we welcome 
the new year.
Full of things that 
have never been."
                                    Rainer Maria Rilke

"Forgive quickly. 
Kiss Slowly.
Love truly. 
Laugh uncontrollably
And never regret 
Especially that which 
makes you smile."
                                       Mark Twain

"The only journey 
is the one within."
               Rainer Maria Rilke

"We shall not cease 
from exploration, and the 
end of all our exploring 
will be to arrive 
where we started 
and know the place 
for the first time."
                 T. S. Eliot


My day begins
with coffee making
and your visits.
Thank YOU
for YOU!
             Fondly, cloudia

My day begins with tea. And feeding the cat. And blog visits. Where I learn, and laugh, and marvel...

My day usually begins around 10 or 11. I'm up at zero dark thirty for baby sitting duty this morning.
