Step Over

 A   L   O   H   A  !

The two most engaging 

powers of a photograph 

are to make new things 

familiar and familiar 

things new.

            William Thackeray

 When someone spews 

something really hurtful 

don’t pick it up and hold it 

and rub it into your heart 

and snuggle with it and 

carry it around for a long time. 

Don’t even put energy into 

kicking it to the curb. 

You’ve got to see it and 

step over it or go around it 

and keep on going.

   Brene Brown

Once one has shown 

there's a way through, 

others will follow. 

        Frank Bowling

Yesterday is not 

ours to recover, but 

tomorrow is ours 

to win or lose. 

Lyndon B. Johnson

Brene Brown has given me something to think about and a lesson to learn.
Thank you and Pixie. Again.

So is that a new thing or a familiar thing that I don't recognize.

I like the cat and the finch. I want to get another cat but I'll likely wait not until a vaccination for covid is in place since I have to go to view it and pick it up somewhere. The finch is cute. I've only seen them at the conservatory here.
