Radiate Sublimity

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Our prime purpose in this life
is to help others. And if you can't
help them, at least don't hurt them.
          Dalai Lama.

Back Up Singers

When a group of people sing
together, we make up a chorus.
When birds do, it's more like a
whole symphony orchestra.
Laura Erickson

Start where you are.
Use what you have.
Do what you can.
   Arthur Ashe

Muscovy duck (Cairina moschata) 

Sometimes people are beautiful.
Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in what they are.
     Markus Zusak

To survive is to find some
meaning in the suffering. 

Those who cannot change their
minds cannot change anything. George Bernard Shaw


Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

Elegance is a glowing inner peace.
Grace is an ability to give
as well as to receive
and be thankful.
Mystery is a hidden laugh
always ready to surface!
Glamour only radiates if
there is a sublime
courage & bravery within
C. JoyBell C.

LOTS of wisdom (and beauty) today.

So nice kittens

I may have rowed the boat ashore, but how did I get out there to begin with?

Teresa said...

Pixie is radiating her sublime courage and bravery as she prepares to run the gauntlet past the ferocious red-headed duck and the gecko guardian to get to the kitty chorus. Michael's boat can't help her because she has to go by land, not by sea. The kitties will sing the song of their people that has nothing to do with boats and everything to do with the regal majesty of felines.
