No Room For Intrusions

A L O H A From Honolulu!

The meaning of life
is just to be alive.
It is so plain and so obvious
 and so simple.
And yet, everybody 
rushes around in a great panic
as if it were necessary 
to achieve something 
beyond themselves.
              Alan Wilson Watts

Over every mountain
there is a path, although it may not be seen from the valley. Theodore Roethke

You are never too old
to set another goal
or to dream
a new dream.
Les Brown

Who is modeling the 
kind humility of the
truly confident & 
person today?

Listen to the birds,
hug your family and remember
what really matters. Problem hunting, and arguing is for suckers.  

If you fill yourself up from the days beginning with beautiful things that you notice, that you appreciate, that have real value to you, there will be no room for
lesser emotions to intrude.

Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

More great quotes. Being alive is something to always be thankful for. Mom really appreciates this since she should have died last year, but managed to survive.
