Random Acts of Loveliness

A L O H A From Honolulu!
To gild refined gold,
to paint the lily,
To throw a perfume
on the violet,
To smooth the ice,
or add another hue
Unto the rainbow, or
with taper-light
To seek the beauteous
eye of heaven to garnish,
Is wasteful and
ridiculous excess.

Out in the lonely woods
the jasmine burns
Its fragrant lamps, and turns
Into a royal court
with green festoons
The banks of
dark lagoons.
   Henry Timrod

True friends are those
who lift you up when your heart's wings
forget how to fly. Anonymous

Always give
without remembering
and always receive
without forgetting. Brian Tracy


Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

I have taken a copy of that anonymous quote - it is wonderful and so true. Your blog often gets me flying again.

Oh yes, the glimmer thousand shinning sun after rainbow, and the Love of Peace bird. Beautiful .

Pixie is wondering if she can get back to that nap now.

Thank you for the loveliness of your blog! Pixie is willing us to never forget all the joy that she gives us. We must be forever grateful to HER.

I'm fond of the little blue flowers I have them growing all over the front of my house.....

Anni said...

Of course I enjoyed your bird image, but both the sweet kitty and the flower with the well-timed image of the sun's ray are winners too!!
Thanks for linking up this weekend! Always appreciate your input.
