“To forget one's ancestors is to
be a brook without a source, 
a tree without root”
 Chinese Proverb

“A heartful mind 
can always see better 
than mindless eyes” 
                Munia Khan

Look! It's Petaluma Pete
 “Take a music bath once 
or twice a week for 
a few seasons, and 
you will find that 
it is to the soul what 
the water bath is 
to the body.”
            Oliver Wendell Holmes

"Getting lost was not a 
matter of geography 
so much as identity,
a passionate desire, 
even an urgent need, 
to become no one and anyone,
to shake off the shackles 
that remind you who you are,
who others think you are."

                 Rebecca Solnit

Thank YOU
          Warmly, cloudia

My Uncle lived in Petaluma. I think I still have cousins there.

I don't know if I agree about ancestors. Sometimes I wonder why humans seem so focused on ancestors. I'm not sure what it tells one about oneself.

Cloudia said...

Interesting point Charles. Thanks to each of you for making my day sweet 🌟🌈
