Appreciate How Well You Are Coping

A L O H A From Honolulu!

We are each gifted in
a unique and important way.
It is our privilege and our adventure
to discover our own special light.
Mary Dunbar

I am not interested
in slice of life,
what I want is a
slice of the imagination.
   Carlos Fuentes

Even in one
single leaf on a tree, or
in one blade of grass, the
awesome Deity presents itself.
  Shinto Teaching

It's surprising
how much of memory
is built around things
unnoticed at the time.
Barbara Kingsolver

There are dark shadows
on the Earth; but
its lights are stronger
in the contrast.
  Charles Dickens

Skyward Tiger with tail of light 


how well you are coping

with this highly unusual time!

Take a moment to notice

your quiet competence

that doesn't shout,

but speaks volumes.

Love You,
 Cloudia & Pixie

How I wish I was quietly competent. I muddle along (and am grateful that I can).

Bless you friend

I love that rainbow shot over Pixie walking with her tail of light. I think the two are connected somehow. Thanks for the uplifting post.
