Take Time Today

A  L  O  H  A !
"You can't have a light without 
a dark to stick it in."
              Arlo Guthrie

“The rough must always 
accompany the smooth. 
Without one or the other 
one learns nothing 
about oneself.” 
                   Solange Nicole

"When was the last time you spent 
a quiet moment just doing nothing - 
just sitting and looking at the sea, 
or watching the wind 
blowing the tree limbs, or 
waves rippling on a pond, 
a flickering candle or 
children playing in the park?" 
               Ralph Marston


Let Your Sanity
Catch Up With You

Thank YOU
                 Warmly, cloudia

I spend a lot of time doing precisely those sorts of nothing. And value the time.

Oooh - fabulous shots!

"When was the last time you spent
a quiet moment just doing nothing..."

Sometimes it is time to do only this.

Hello, beautiful flower! Love the goose capture. The Ralph Marston quote is my favorite.
Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

Cloudia said...

My wonderful Sisters! Thanks

Teresa said...

Love that second quote. The goose looks quite elegant.

Preening must always be done, even if a bird looks less stoic doing so.

Mike said...

Plenty of rough. Waiting for the smooth.

RedPat said...

I'm looking for the smooth too!

Arlo Guthrie got it right -- contrasts make light brighter!

Duckbutt said...

The California poppy is brilliant!

Nice quotes

I wouldn't be able to survive if I didn't follow as a daily practice your last quote! Oh yeah.

Although, that's not to say sometimes watching children play can be a wild ride! As my Friday night was, with two of my grand-delights at Grand Slam! These munchkins are really growing up!
