 A   L   O   H   A  !

Your assumptions are 

your windows on the world.

      Isaac Asimov

Rainbow Sundog Reflection

Dream delivers us to dream, 

and there is no end to illusion. 

Life is like a train of moods 

like a string of beads, and, 

as we pass through them, 

they prove to be many-colored 

lenses which paint the world 

their own hue. . . . ” 

                               Ralph Waldo Emerson


... the world can give you 

these glimpses 

as well as fairy tales can-

-the smell of rain, 

the dazzle of sun on 

white clapboard 

with the shadows of ferns and 

wash on the line, the wildness 

of a winter storm when in the 

house the flame of a candle 

doesn't even flicker.

Frederick Buechner

Reject your sense of injury and 

the injury itself disappears.

Funny you should mention dreams. I've been having some really weird ones lately.

I firmly believe we all need to dream.

I love the last quote by Marcus Aurelius! Today's post leaves me wondering why our dreams are broken by a fence, and then you tell us that we just have glimpses. And in the end, we have to set aside our feelings of injury. A weighty message today wrapped in fluffy clouds, beautiful colors, and a warm, cuddly Pixie cat.

Ah, the smell of rain... "When a raindrop lands on a porous surface, air from the pores forms small bubbles, which float to the surface and release aerosols. Such aerosols carry the scent, as well as bacteria and viruses from the soil."
Bacteria and viruses, what more could you want to inhale?

But then I'd always heard that lightning created nitric acid in the air and that was the smell. I like that theory better.
