Flowers Love Us

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Let there always be a
bright spot in your heart
for the people around you.
They might need
a bit of sunshine.
   Ron Baratono

Yellow-fronted canary is in the finch family

I am a soul in the world:
in the world of my soul
the whirled light from the day Amiri Baraka

I love you between
shadow and soul.
I love you as the plant
that hasn't bloomed yet,
and carries hidden
within itself
the light of flowers.
Pablo Neruda

King Of Drinks
If I had to live my life over,
I'd live over a saloon.
  W.C. Fields

Acts of kindness never die.
They linger in the memory,
giving life to other
acts in return.
    Jonathan Sacks

It felt important to acknowledge
our small successes, to stop
and observe the tiny pockets
of sunshine that broke up the
boredom of our monochrome days
and made us smile.

The clouds in that first shot are quite dramatic.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I am here to see the Hibiscus Chicks AND the man sitting on the palette of beer. WC Fields knew exactly what to say, didn't he? And of course, Pixie always has good advice. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos, appropriate quotes, the mural, and your great T Tuesday pick this week.

Hello Cloudia.

Love all the quotes but especially the acts of kindness.

The kitty steals the show as always and would definitely break up a monochrome day. Precious.

Love the mural too.
