A    L    O    H    A  !
Although our intellect 

always longs for clarity 

and certainty, our nature 

often finds uncertainty 


     Carl von Clausewitz

Gratitude is happiness  

doubled by wonder.

     Gilbert K. Chesterton

There is something 

of the marvelous in 

all things of nature.  

Music is well said 

to be the speech 

of angels; in fact, 

nothing among the 

utterances allowed to man 

is felt to be so divine. 

It brings us near 

to the infinite.

    Thomas Carlyle

Birds sing after a storm;

why shouldn't people feel 

as free to delight in 

whatever sunlight 

remains to them?

            Rose Kennedy

The day after we adopted

Granted, Cloudia I'm here to see the music mural, but Pixie stole the show and tore at my heart strings. Squiggles came from our Humane Society. I applaud you (and Pixie, too).

I am so glad that you and Pixie found each other. Jazz is also a rescue cat, and enriches our lives.
And Mr Chesterton is my vote today.

Our dog was rescued from another family as a puppy because she can be ... snotty. But she has mellowed at 10 years but still likes to growl at you every once in a while to let you know who's really in charge.

That sky shot is glorious, and I love Pixie's adoption photo. Glad she came into our lives.
