Going Along - Going Along

A    L    O    H    A  !
We Miss Our Visitors
I like to prowl ordinary places
and taste the people-
from a distance.
        Charles Bukowski

 Universe is the Sun 
watching its own self.
           Dejan Stojanovic

To assess the quality 
of thoughts of people, 
don't listen to their words, 
but watch their actions.
            Amit Kalantri,

The unreality of the watched
makes the watching real.
         Octavio Paz

It's sometimes funny to watch some people doing
something the wrong way but doing it confidently.
Even more funny, they succeeded.
            Toba Beta 

I prefer the company of peasants 
because they have not been educated 
sufficiently to reason incorrectly.
                            Michel de Montaigne

And Remember:
A vacation is having nothing to do 
and all day to do it in.
Robert Orben

Interesting mural Cloudia. Love your cat by the slippers :) Thanks for contributing.

These are so stunning. Even during a lock down, you manage to find beauty in your city. Were it not for your photos and perfect quotes to go with them, we might never see the beauty you capture in your lens. I came for the beautiful and really unique mural and stayed for T Tuesday, where the bars and restaurants are still silent. Thanks for this lovely tribute to T this Tuesday. See you later today for a virtual drink.
