Seen From the Valley

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Dreams are illustrations...
from the book your soul
is writing about you.
Marsha Norman

Happiness is like a butterfly,
which when pursued is
just beyond your grasp,
but which, if you sit
down quietly, it may
alight upon you.

Thou canst not stir a flower
Without troubling of a star...
  Francis Thompson 
    "The Mistress of Vision," c.1897

Trust yourself. Create the kind 
of self that you will be 
happy to live with all your life.   
Golda Meir

Over every mountain
there is a path, 
although it may not be
seen from the valley. 
    Theodore Roethke

Love You,
Cloudia & Pixie

Maybe next time.

Love that Hawthorn quote.
And I am a work in progress. Always.

Love you both

I like the quote about the butterfly of happiness, too. Thanks for posting beautiful flowers that attract that butterfly to alight upon your readers (and for posting cute Pixie shots).
