Joyous Profusion At Last: Spring Edition

A L O H A From Honolulu!
What a strange thing!
to be alive
beneath cherry blossoms.
Kobayashi Issa

5 Arrows

Nostalgia in reverse,

the longing for yet

another strange land,

grew especially strong

in spring.

Vladimir Nabokov

sweet spring is your time is my time is our time for springtime is lovetime and viva sweet love (all the merry little birds are flying in the floating in the very spirits singing in are winging in the blossoming)
e.e. cummings

Tiny Palms

It's spring fever.

That is what the name of it is.

And when you've got it,

you want—oh, you don't

quite know what it is

you do want, but

it just fairly makes

your heart ache,
you want it so!
Mark Twain

In the spring,
at the end of the day,
you should smell like dirt. Margaret Atwood


Creating these posts
can be an emotional thing.

A famous rabbi wouldn't
even answer the door
if he was not himself.
Energy & Feelings
pronounce themselves
in everything we do
and say.

Check your state.
Is it who you
really are

Weed your garden.
Choose your flowers
and some 'weeds'
Groom your mood.

Things will change.
But then they always do.
Except now
you will be driving.

Thanks for your dear visit!

Love You,
Cloudia & Pixie

Love the Margaret Attwood quote - which is probably true of me in several seasons.

"Things will change. But then they always do."
The only constant is change.

Thoughts to ponder and always these idyllic photos to warm us. Have I told you how much I love Pixie's header shot? She makes me smile every time I open up your blog.
