Glorybower Starburst

A L O H A From Honolulu!

 In everyone's life, at some time,
our inner fire goes out.
It is then burst into flame
by an encounter
with another human being... 

...We should all be thankful
for those people who rekindle
the inner spirit.
 Albert Schweitzer

* About this plant (and above)

Every day that is born into the world
 comes like a burst of music, and rings
 the whole day through, and you make of it
 a dance, a dirge, or a life march, 
as you will.
  Thomas Carlyle 

Don't underestimate the value
of Doing Nothing,
 of just going along, listening
to all the things you can't
hear, and not bothering.
    Winnie the Pooh

If you come at four 
in the afternoon, 
I'll begin to be 
happy by three. 
      Antoine de Saint-Exupéry


Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

I just think of Comfort Spiral blog and begin to get happy, and then I arrive, and it is full of fireworks and flowers and Pixie Cat!

Thank you for another wonderful series of quotes that allow me for inner reflections.

I've burst into flames several times during encounters with other humans.

All inner flames need rekindling every now and again!
