 A   L   O   H   A  !

The firmest of friendships 

have been formed in 

mutual adversity, as iron 

is most strongly united 

by the fiercest flame. 

Charles Caleb Colton

Nirvana is not the 

blowing out of the candle. 

It is the extinguishing of the

flame because day is come. 

Rabindranath Tagore

Interest in a single bluebird 

is worth more than a 

complete but dry list of 

the fauna and flora of a town.

Henry David Thoreau

Dr. Insomniac Coffee Shop, Novato, CA

Things taste better outdoors. 

And if it's a forbidden thing, 

so much the better.     

Franny Billingsley

 We should all be thankful 

for those who

rekindle the inner spirit.

Albert Schweitzer

Today Pixie is the square!! Lovely pictures of California. I saw news about an earthquake and volcanic eruption in Hawaii. Hope you are well. Why is that coffee forbidden?

Cloudia said...

Forbidden coffee! Love that name for a coffee shop!

Henry David Thoreau was obviously not a collector of 'stuff'.

I had to laugh at Dr. Insomniac's Coffee Shop. What a clever name for a coffee shop. I like the quote that went with it, too. Thanks for sharing Pixie in her sunny space, you lovely photos and quotes, and Dr. Insomniac's Coffee Shop with us for T this Tuesday, dear Cloudia.
