No Time To Rush

A L O H A From Honolulu!

I am still on my zigzag way,
pursuing the diagonal
between reason and heart.
Ruskin Bond

True wisdom lies in gathering the precious things out of each day as it goes by. E.S. Boutons

I thank you God for this
most amazing day, for the
leaping greenly spirits of trees,
and for the blue dream of sky
and for everything which is
natural, which is infinite,
which is yes. e. e. cummings

Very often a change of self
is needed more than
a change of scene.
A. C. Benson

"Faces Off"
That brick that you're standing on,
that foundation that
you're standing on,
there's a brick in there
that was placed
by someone you never knew,
sort of a
faceless possibility, but
you're there now.
You have an opportunity to
put your own brick in there. 
    Christopher Jackson

I never hurry.
I have no time to hurry. Igor Stravinsky


Love You,
Cloudia & Pixie

Every day does indeed have precious things - if we keep our eyes, hearts and minds open to see them.

I like the tree with the red trunk and the blue leaves.

Pixie sees no need to hurry.

Wonderful quotes, as always.
I'd forgotten about e.e. cummings!

RedPat said...

Great words for the day, Cloudia. Just doing the zig-zag here.

Penelope Notes said...

The e.e. cummings quote is one I don't recall and somehow broadens what I thought I knew of him. Thank you for highlighting all these comforting quotes. :)

Teresa said...

Love that gorgeous sky shot in the first picture. Pixie is thinking that maybe she will hurry tomorrow.

I can't believe how far behind I am, Cloudia. Today is catch-up day, so that is what I am doing. Pixie is always adorable and your quotes are great, especially the e. e. cummings. Loved your FFO photo, too.

More beautiful photos and quotes, Cloudia. I love the Cummings prayer. I'm always hurrying, and probably always will. Have a good week!
