But This Place

 A   L   O   H   A  !

When nothing is sure, 

everything is possible.

  Margaret Drabble

Hide not your talents. 

They for use 

were made. 

What's a sundial 

in the shade? 

Benjamin Franklin

Self-care is never 

a selfish act-

it is simply good 


of the only gift 

I have, the gift I was 

put on earth to 

offer to others.

       Parker Palmer

Gardens are not 

made by singing

'Oh, how beautiful,' 

and sitting 

in the shade. 

   Rudyard Kipling

V  O  T  E !

Happiness, not 

in another place 

but this place,

not for another hour, 

but this hour.

     Walt Whitman


Love You!

How right Rudyard Kipling was.
I do understand why self care is necessary - but struggle with it just the same.
Thank you and beautiful Pixie.

Pixie is singing "oh how beautiful," while sitting in the sun. She has found the secret!

I enjoyed your beautiful photos and quotes. I needed to be reminded by Walt Whitman's wisdom that happiness is indeed in this time and place, in spite of pandemics and politics!

Whitman's poem reminds me happiness is always available, not to be sought. All the quotes and photos relate so well today!
