Fault Lies

A  L  O  H  A !
"Whenever anyone has 
offended me, I try 
to raise my soul so 
high that the offense 
cannot reach it."
                 Rene Descartes

"Leaping is an exercise 
very commendable and 
healthful to the body, 
especially if you use it 
in the morning: but 
upon a full stomach and 
to bedward it is very dangerous, 
and in no wise to be used." 
                          Henry Peacham, 
                                       The Compleat Gentleman, 1634

"If you see no reason 
for giving thanks, the 
fault lies in yourself."
               Native American Proverb,

Full stomach to bed is very dangerous. I have experienced this. It will be hard to get sleep, improper digestion...

Aloha Cloudia, your first quote reminds me of my mother, and her words "rise above it" ring through my head so much lately. Thanks for this uplifting reminder.

Lovely photos and quotations.

I've been thinking about you all week as I watch the news of Hawaii. I hope you and your family and friends are all safe. xx
