Flashes

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Everywhere across
whatever sorrows of
which our life is woven,
some radiant joy will
gaily flash past.
Nikolai Gogol


You're not in this life for
things to go well.
You're in this life to be
your deepest heart in all
that goes well and in
all that doesn't. John de Ruiter



Everyone has an invisible sign
hanging from their neck saying,
'Make me feel important.'
Never forget this...
    Mary Kay Ash




Wit is the appearance, the
external flash of imagination.
Thus its divinity, and the
witty character of mysticism.
Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel





Mirth is like
a flash of lightning,
that breaks through
a gloom of clouds,
and glitters for a moment;
cheerfulness keeps up a kind
of daylight in the mind, and
fills it with a steady and
perpetual serenity.
  Joseph Addison



Politeness is the art
of choosing among
your thoughts.
 Madame De Stael


Love You,
  Cloudia & Pixie

Thank you. Though I have NO wish to feel important.

You simply are. Such a pleasure to see you. Have a lovely day.

Thanks for your flashes of brilliance and happiness. I think that Pixie is startled by the Pumpkin flash-puppet.

Hello Cloudia and Pixie, thank you for all those wise words and marvelous photos. I enjoy my visits back to the Islands through your photos. We were talking about our last trip there only yesterday. Have a wonderful week :)))

I thought I'd been here already. I guess not.
"Politeness is the art of choosing among your thoughts."
Joke - I like to be as surprised as everyone else about what comes out of my mouth.

Hello Cloudia :=)

Glorious rainbow capture, and that rooster is pretty snazzy. I like the last two quotes the best. Pixie looks a little startled, perhaps she has just had a bad dream about a rooster chasing her.:=)

Great light on the fifth one. Not bad scenery either. Meow to Pixie!

The rainbow fading into the cloud is lovely. :)
