Reach Practices

A L O H A From Honolulu!

The longest way
must have its close-
the gloomiest night
will wear on to
a morning.
   Harriet Beecher Stowe

All the windows

of my heart -

I open to the day.     

   John Greenleaf Whittier

Embarrassment lasts 
a moment, regrets 
last a lifetime.
                Petteri Tarkkonen

Life's like a movie, 
write your own ending. 
Keep believing, 
keep pretending.
                             Jim Henson

There's calm in each
and every day,
we just need to
practice reaching
out for it. Ron Baratono


Love You,
Cloudia & Pixie

The rainbow in that first shot is so cool. People in those buildings are living in the rainbow. Do you think that look on Pixie's face means that she has found the pot of gold while living in the rainbow?

Sometimes calm eludes me - which doesn't stop me searching for it.

Cloudia said...

Pixie will never tell!

We will keep reaching the calm together.

I hope so.

Pixie understands calm.

It took me awhile to work out the reflection shot. I had to really study it to see what you'd done. As for the first shot, you are literally somewhere over the rainbow!

Great post! I love cats, palm trees, and reflections. :-)

Greetings and Salutations! I work at being calm daily. Pixie has figured it out for sure. Perhaps one day she will whisper in your ear how to be calm and then you can tell us. LOL! Always look forward to seeing your photographs and read your quotes.

Keeping the window of my heart open even when my heart feels heavy. The flowers are so uplifting, they banish glloom & keep me in the now.Thanks to you & Pixie. Inspiration for my writing for the soul group.

Nice photo's and love the city with palms on the street. Also that last flower looks a bit like a four-leaf clover except its now a five-leave clover with of course even more luck. Have a nice weekend.
