 A  L  O  H  A !

One name for the 

experience of 

full being 

is joy.

        J.M. Coetzee

All the adversity 

I've had in my life, all 

my troubles and obstacles, 

have strengthened me... 

You may not realize it 

when it happens, but a 

kick in the teeth may be 

the best thing in 

the world for you.

     Walt Disney

Negative people talk and 

your dreams begin to wither off. 

But they begin to sprout 

in the fragrance of hope 

when they find a new soil! 

Change your environment!

 Israelmore Ayivor

When they see the sun setting,

do the birds go in a

frenzy to stop him or

dance in his exuberance

through the day?

           Nitya Prakash

There's calm in each 

and every day, we 

just need to practice 

reaching out for it.     

Ron Baratono

Divide and rule, 

the politician cries; 

unite and lead, is 

watchword of the wise. 

           Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


We Love You,
                    Pixie & Cloudia

Thanks for the tour of Chinatown, with Pixie still meditating about becoming a lion. If she drinks some Tsingdao beer, you will definitely hear that kitty roar!!

I love the bird (red-winged blackbird?). We don't get them here in the city, but I've seen them along country roads.

Happy T Tuesday!

Mike said...

Tats? Also a cute belly button.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I enjoyed your Chinatown photos and the new growth on the tree. Pixie knows politics when she sees them, I think. Thanks for sharing your incredible photos, quotes, and drinks with us for T this Tuesday, dear Cloudia.

Lady Fi said...

Great quotes and pics! Tsingtao beer tastes good too.

Cloudia said...

Thanks for joining the party each of YOU! Those you can see, Mike ;)

Sandee said...

Love them all, but that last one is spot on.

Pixie is most adorable.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. ♥

I can always count on a visit here to change any foul or blue mood, and click away happier than when I arrived. Peace to you and lots of Aloha!
