Another Shot At Life

A L O H A From Honolulu!

After more than a year 

of lock-down, 

returning aspects of my 

normal life seem 

like a wonderland!

An early-morning walk is 

a blessing for the whole day.

Henry David Thoreau

Ho! Ho! Ho! 

To the bottle I go

To heal my heart 

and drown my woe

Rain may fall, 

and wind may blow

And many miles be still to go

But under a tall tree 

will I lie

            And let the clouds 


go sailing by

        J.R.R. Tolkien


Hope may seem

a fragile thing.

Until you really

hear it sing.

Given another shot at life,

I would seize every

minute of it …

look at it and really see it …

try it on … live it …

exhaust it …

and never give

that minute back

until there was

nothing left of it.
Erma Bombeck

In that first one, I can see a face with an arm pointing away.

Are those lychees in the picture about the quote on hope? Love the Erma Bombeck quote. It matches Pixie (and Cloudia).

RedPat said...

Love the Erma Bombeck quote too!

Cloudia said...

Those DO look like Lychee (which ARE in season) but they are smaller. Those are Buttonwood or Button Mangrove.

I love each of you <3

That first is quite dramatic.

Dreaming under a tall tree watching Cloudia's clouds sail by sounds special to me also, especially when they look like angels as in your first shot 💙

To be able to take a walk anywhere is a blessing
