Drinking Buddies

A  L  O  H  A !
The object of life 

is not to be on the 

side of the majority, but 

to escape finding oneself in

the ranks of the insane.

          Marcus Aurelius 

Drinking Buddies Trading Quotes
I have absolutely no pleasure in the

stimulants in which I sometimes so madly 

indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of 

pleasure that I have periled life and reputation

 and reason. It has been the desperate 

attempt to escape from torturing memories, 

from a sense of insupportable loneliness and 

a dread of some strange impending doom.

Edgar Allan Poe

I drink to make other 

people more interesting.


Mask Wearing & Distancing goes against Island Culture [last year photo]
" A`ohe hana nui ke alu `ia "

No task is too big 

when done 

together by all.

           Hawaiian Wisdom

Happiness is like a butterfly, 

which when pursued is

just beyond your grasp, but 

which, if you sit down quietly 

it may alight upon you.


We must learn to be still 

in the midst of activity 

and to be vibrantly 

alive in repose.

          Indira Gandhi


We Love You!

Those last two quotes are awesome. I love the picture of Pixie waiting for her butterfly to alight.

"but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane."
But how will I know?

I especially LOVE the drinking buddies. They share something in common. I've never had guava juice before, and it sounds wonderful. As always, your quotes and your photos match up beautifully. Pixie looks especially majestic today. Thanks for joining us on the very special 7th anniversary, dear Cloudia.

Beautiful photos and a great choice of quotes! I love seeing that first photo with the blue sky - something that is lacking here - Summer is passing us by after a fabulous April! Belated T Day Wishes! Chrisx
