Articulated Skies Articulate Eyes

A L O H A From Honolulu!

There are days when solitude, for someone my age, is a heady wine that
intoxicates you with freedom.

Nothing is inherently and
invincibly young except spirit.
And spirit can enter a
human being perhaps better
in the quiet of old age and dwell
there more undisturbed
than in the turmoil of adventure.
George Santayana

In the stillness of my heart,
I hear a whisper soft and low,
"It's going to be okay, my dear,
Just let go and let it flow."

Surfer is throwing a Shaka! Link

Religion is at its best when
it makes us ask hard
questions of ourselves.
It is at its worst when it
deludes us into thinking
we have all the answers
for everybody else.
Archibald Macleish

Life is a Dream.
Make it a Good One

Love You,
Cloudia & Pixie

Love that sky and the Archibald Macleish quote.

Pixie is planning her good dream as she falls asleep. No nightmares here, just catnip and tuna treat parties that leave her caterwauling at the moon from her penthouse walk.

Saimin looks like laksa in a way. Can't wait to try it out

Beautiful sky indeed but also the feeling that you are looking into a vulcano.

I agree with Elephant's Child on both that sky shot and the Macleish quote. That Saimin looks delicious, love going back in time with the Royalettes and you know I'm a sucker for any photo of a cat but that Pixie is a very contented cat. Best wishes from Arizona.
