Old Ends New Beginnings

 A   L   O   H   A  !
I close my eyes 

to old ends. And 

open my heart 

to new beginnings.

Nick Frederickson

Things always work out 

but seldom like you 

think they will. 

Occasionally detours are 

the sweetest part of life.

    Sue Aikens 

My idea of Heaven is to 

wake up, have a 

good breakfast, 

and spend the rest 

of the day drawing. 

    Peter Falk


The aim of art is to 

represent not the outward 

appearance of things, but 

their inward significance.


When evil men plot, 

good men must plan. 

When evil men burn and bomb, 

good men must build and bind. 

When evil men shout 

ugly words of hatred, 

good men must 

commit themselves 

to the glories of love.

        Martin Luther  King 

The lamps are all different 

but the light is the same.



Love You!

Pixie & Cloudia

I LOVE them all but purrticularly the Rumi Quote! And the Bar! Wow! I'd still be working in one if the one I worked in was that cool! Have a wonderfully Happy Day!

I was at our local pub in October on the patio. I run into other regulars from there and we all hope for next summer to be back having a pint there. If the place survives.

Jolly Friends!

Great sayings and Pixie is adorable.

Last time I was in a bar? Gosh, had to be at a yacht club.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. ♥

migration. Love the Rumi quote.

I haven't been in a restaurant or pub for months. I miss going out to eat too.

Peabea Scribbles said...

Beautiful butterfly photo and the flower macro. Love seeing your pretty green trees. Happy Tuesday.

I had a ton of paperwork I was trying to get out yesterday, which sucked up my time. I was late getting my T post up yesterday and now I'm even later playing host. I'm very sorry I'm late visiting.

I really enjoyed the Sue Aikens quote and the photo you chose to accompany it.

I don't really go to bars, but I go to restaurants that have bars in them. However, I haven't been anywhere since March, 2020. I also miss being waited on and enjoying a meal I didn't have to prepare myself.

Thanks for sharing all these beautiful photos and quotes, as well as the bar photo for T on Tuesday, which, thanks to my lateness, is now Wednesday.

Kate Yetter said...

Such lovely photos. I haven't been to a restaurant in a while. Looking forward to eating out again.
Happy Belated Tea Day,

Sharon Madson said...

Oh, my goodness, Peter Faulk! Just recently watched a Columbo marathon! LOL Yes, detours in life, are opportunities. Last time I was in a bar might have been 50 years ago! LOL
Happy T Day.

CJ Kennedy said...

I enjoy your quotes and pictures, but I love the pictures of beautiful Pixie the best.
