Joy Path the Purr-Fection

A L O H A From Honolulu!

In the garden of
everyday experience, we
uncover unexpected treasures...
we move from a self-centered
toward a reality-centered life—
and open to wonder.
     Joko Beck

Sweet people have
sweet expectations and
sweet assumptions

Peace is every step.
The shining red sun is my heart.
Each flower smiles with me.
How green, how fresh all that grows.
How cool the wind blows.
Peace is every step.
It turns the endless path to joy.
Thich Nhat Hanh


[ For Your Caption ]

One of the most pleasant
experiences in life is to
get caught doing a good deed.

Gratitude is a concept
Saying 'Thank You'
the practice
Meaning it
the Perfection


Love You,
Cloudia & Pixie

I prefer to do my good deeds incognito.

The bumper car ride at the amusement park is sorely in need of an upgrade.

Smiles are gifts. We give one another. Yes. Thanks both of you!

For your quote submission: “When you have a great car, you want people to see the car.” (Andris Nelsons) But when your only car is a battered old shopping cart, you hide it in an alley behind a derelict warehouse and pray that no one notices.

Pixie looks like she's ready to sit in judgment over our "For your quote" submissions. Will the top prize be catnip? Has our judge stolen the prize? Inquiring minds want to know.

Pixie is asking why you didn't consult with her before featuring a dog.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Sorry I am so late visiting. I now have four cats and two households to take care of, and last night I visited Sally at the hospital till they threw me out. She finally got a room late last night. Before that she was stuck in the ER on a cot.

I hope I never get caught doing a good deed. I would rather my part go unnoticed. I'm certain Pixie likes being noticed, though.

Love your take on a drink reference for T this Tuesday, dear Cloudia. Thanks for sharing this.
