Overcome Easy

A  L  O  H  A !

"First thing we'd climb a tree. 
And maybe then we'd talk. 
Or sit silently. And 
listen to our thoughts. 
With illusions of someday, 
cast in a golden light. 
No dress rehearsal. 
This is our life."   
        Gord Downie  

"Never speak harsh words 
For they will rebound upon you.
 Angry words hurt 
And the hurt rebounds. 
Like a broken gong.   

"With gentleness 
overcome anger. 
With generosity 
overcome meanness. 
With truth 
overcome deceit."

Thank YOU
             Fondly, cloudia

I haven't climbed a tree in quite awhile. Maybe today.... or not.

I have to keep a close eye on the pair of Canada Geese that frequent my float cabin home. They swim by eyeing my floating garden with all of the green shoots. - Margy
