Wonder Wings

A  L  O  H  A !
 California Scrub Jay

"It is only at the first encounter 
that a face makes its full
 impression on us."


"The greatest mistake you 
can make in life is to 
be continually fearing 
you will make one."
             Elbert Hubbard

"Do not forget small 
kindnesses and do not 
remember small faults." 
   Chinese Proverb

Yellow Hooded Oriole

" All stars stand close in summer air
And tremble, and look mild as amber;
When wicks are lighted in the chamber
You might say stars were settling there.

Fearing mistakes creates procrastination. Procrastination creates naps. I like naps.
