Focus on the Few

A L O H A From Honolulu!
So many things
are unimportant.
You’re wise when
you focus on the
few that truly are.
Maxime Lagacé

As we are looking back 
And then we'll Understand 
We held gold dust
In our hands.
  Tori Ellen Amos

True gold fears no fire. Chinese Proverb

 Go somewhere
you've never been.
Listen to someone you think
may have nothing in common with you. Be open to a world where you may not understand or agree with the person next to you, but have a drink with them anyways. Eat slowly. Tip your server. Check in on your friends.
Check in on yourself.
Enjoy the ride.
    Anthony Bourdain
Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

Pixie wants some of that gold dust (or maybe a bite of lizard tail...). Thanks for taking us to places we've never been before without ever leaving the house. Have a wonderful day!

Cloudia said...

I so appreciate you coming on this journey with us! We come here. Expect it to see what you will say next 💐

These words hit me right in the spot. The first one fits the situation I'm dealing with. Oh, and the last one too. One day I'll leave my city and move to another city, explore beautiful places, meet new people, make new friends. The last one is my favorite.

How I wish that Anthony Bourdain had listened to his own advice...

Cloudia said...

Appreciate both of you. Thank you

Words that hit home for me today as I deal with some issues. Anthony Bourdain's words made me teary.

Brian said...

Really such wonderful words, may we all learn those lessons. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

Poor Anthony. He was so troubled.
I love the reptile!

Anthony Bourdain found words of wisdom. Still, he doesn't seem happy in the end. Greetings - Elke

Pixie is wondering what that lizard is.
