Make Courtesy Awesome Again

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Courtesy should be
a continuous action,
not something to be
turned on and off
like a faucet.

These wild chickens have laid their egg atop a utility box!
Courtesies of a small
and trivial character
are the ones which
strike deepest in the
grateful and
appreciating heart.
  Henry Clay

I often painted
fragments of things
because it seemed to
make my statement
as well as or better
than the whole could.....
When you take a
flower in your hand
and really look at it,
it’s your world
for the moment.
I want to give that
world to someone else....

...Most people in the city
rush around so,
they have no time
to look at a flower.
I want them
to see it
whether they
want to or not.
     Georgia O'Keeffe

When music and courtesy
are better understood
and appreciated,
there will be no war.

I wish people
were all trees...
I think I could
enjoy them then.
 Georgia O'Keeffe

Love You
   Cloudia & Pixie

Happy Tuesday

I love the shot of the rainbow dog and the one of Pixie and the one of the beautiful sky. Thanks for letting us know the real answer to "Why did the chicken cross the road?" A: To get to its egg on top of the utility box on the other side...

A LOT more courtesy would be very welcome wouldn't it. And like so many things, it starts with us.

"Courtesy should be a continuous action"
It's a good thing it's not required by law. There aren't enough jails in the world.

Love the O'Keefe quotes and of course the palm trees!

Sandee said...

Great quotes and great photography. Then there is beautiful Pixie and that colorful pup.

How gorgeous is that dog?! I wish Confuscius was right....alas. Lovely sunset shot at the start. #HappyTuesday

Your photos illustrate the quotes so beautifully! The words of Georgia O'Keeffe certainly rang true -- they reminded me of macro photography... seeing the beauty in small things (magnified) or in tiny parts of the whole. Excellent job. I enjoyed this very much.

William Kendall said...

What does Pixie think of the wee doggie?

Jenn Jilks said...

Such lovely words, and photos to go with!

Einari Sinappi said...

Gotta love that dog. But I like cats more. Go Pixie!

FiveSibesMom said...

Oh, the world could certainly use more courtesies! Love the beautiful skyline, and the quotes...especially Henry Clay's and Confucius'. And just how cute is your dog?! Very!

Peabea Scribbles said...

Georgia O'Keefe quotes are a favorite. Beautiful photos.

We have wild chickens along the backroads, but not in town so it's fun to see their egg in such a strange place. Awesome photos and great quotes.

Thanks for sharing your link at My Corner of the World this week!
