Humble Treasures

 A  L  O  H  A !

There is not anything 

in the world stronger 

than tenderness.

     Han Suyin

Even waste-handling 

can be cheerful!

I like the way 

the slant lids

dialogue with 

the architecture.

"Drink A Bite To Eat!"
If you love the sacred 

and despise the ordinary

you are still bobbing in 

the sea of illusion.

Linji Yixuan

No one is useless

 in this world 

who lightens the

 burden of it

 for anyone else.

     Charles Dickens


what catches your 


not what catches 

your eyes.

Roy Bennett


Love You,

                       pixie & cloudia

Beautiful pictures, wise words, and Pixie Cat all captured my heart today. Love the quote from Chan Master Linji.

Linji Yixuan is exactly right.

Love the photos - and will think about the Charles Dickens quote. I don't feel useless precisely, but certainly unnecessary.

My hummingbirds have flown south. Nice to see this photo of one. I bet yours don't mirgrate. Happy T day.

This is a lovely post but what stands out to me is how you described the garbage bins. I will never look at them the same again. Have a wonderful day.

Divers and Sundry said...

We still have hummingbirds here, but it won't be long before they've all left on their way south. I'll miss them. Happy T Tuesday

These are so many wonderful quotes, Cloudia. I like that capture of the architectural slants of the garbage containers and the building. You have such a good eye.
