Where Ducks Are Taller Than People

A L O H A From Honolulu!

He broke through the
barriers of the skies.
  William Herschel

You thought the artist
had no money?
Me Too!
There is ALWAYS
another interpretation.

When you are really rich,

you do not mind

coming across as

poor or broke.

Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Not needing to impress,
That IS rich:
Having your own.
Only strivers must affect
the illusion of wealth.

Dogs have no money.
Isn't that amazing?
They're broke their entire lives.
But they get through.
You know why dogs have
no money? No pockets.
  Jerry Seinfeld

Fall in love with
taking care of yourself.
Fall in love with
the path of deep healing.
Fall in love with becoming
the best version of yourself but
with patience, with compassion
and respect to your own journey.
     S. McNutt
Only then
will you truly be
taller than a duck!

"Tourists" Archive Shot 2013
There are times when one
is with their camera that
beautiful and magical things
will come into view. Do not
let them slip by for they must
be shared with the
now and tomorrow. Christopher Paul Flateau

"Triangle Sam"
There's a pizza place
near where I live that
sells only slices. In the back,
you can see a guy tossing a
triangle in the air.

If it be a lie, laugh at it.

The ducks and the boys look harmonious together. Good moments to capture!

Some lovely shots today. The ducklings melted my stony heart.

Teresa said...

Make way for ducklings and their giant mama duck! Personally, I like the Triangle Head dog. Pixie is laughing hard about the lie that the dog tosses triangle-shaped pizzas. She knows that "Dogs drool, and cats rule."

Cloudia said...

LoL 🤣
Stony Heart? The opposite of what I think!
Thanks jolly friends

Love the ducklings and the cute dog.
Wonderful photos. S. McNutt's quote is my favorite.
Take care, have a wonderful week!

I was impressed by the dogs and the ducks. Pixie, too fo cou9rse.

What a drink capture. I laughed so hard when I saw it. That plastic is the bane of serious eco minded people and a tragedy that the person left the water on the ground, rather than finding a trash can. It is great satire for T this Tuesday, dear Cloudia.

Divers and Sundry said...

I got a kick out of the tossing triangles quote. Steven Wright is hilarious lol Happy T Tuesday

Cloudia said...

So great to see each of you! Thanks so much!

Mike said...

"laugh at it"
Laughing for that reason way too much these days.

Lisca said...

Good quotes, and wise too. I enjoyed you beautiful photos and now I'm enjoying James Taylor (I've always been a fan).
Happy T-Day,

CJ Kennedy said...
