Your Job to Unwrap

A  L  O  H  A !
“All the technique in 
the world doesn’t 
compensate for the 
inability to notice.”
                   Elliott Erwitt

"The Eskimos had
fifty-two names for snow
 because it was 
important to them;
 there ought to be 
as many for love." 
      Margaret Atwood

Lion Dancer, Honolulu Chinatown

“You are a beautiful soul 
wrapped up in a human body. 
It’s your job to unwrap, 
and find your soul again.” 
                   Steven Aitchison

Linking to


Stop and breathe 
and go to your heart. 

All the answers you need 
are there patiently waiting. 

I've found that stress 
defeats itself. 
The experiments were 
exhaustive and went 
on for years! 

So take it from me: 
Walk the gentle path . . . 

You may just find yourself 
spiraling into control 
effortlessly. Mounting on 
the wings of your 
grateful heart.

Thank You
                  Fondly, cloudia

The gentle path is the very best one to walk, for us, and for everyone sharing the journey.

That top photo makes me think of a nebula as much as a flower

Cloudia said...

Thank You Karen. Cool, Charles!

I like the quote about how we need many more words for love. I also like the poster of the lion dancers. Great personal thoughts, too, Cloudia. Thanks for sharing.

The Lion dancer mural's got some bright colours and seems to give off some energy.
Good find. Nice to know there's a Chinatown in Honolulu. :)

The feathers on the dragon seem distinctly Hawaiian. Ali'i, right? Your hibiscus is an absolute work of art. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
