Echoes Replaced

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Life is a great big canvas; throw
all the paint you can on it.
  Danny Kaye

Just relax and enjoy the
magnificence of life.
Debasish Mridha

Echoes of revelry,
laughter, and song,
Replaced by warm glow,
all night long.

Liquid to light,
They cast a warm glow,
dispelling the night,
Just one more drink
before we go!

To study hard, think quietly,
talk gently,
act frankly, to listen to
stars, birds, babes,
and sages with open heart,
to bear all cheerfully,
do all bravely,
await occasions,
hurry never.
This is to be my symphony.
William Henry Channing


Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

I really like Willian Channings symphony.

Kay said...

Lovely. It's nice to see the sunshine in your photos. We sure had a lot of rain in our part of town, but then again we really needed it.

I love the gorgeous sky shot, the reflections of lighted buildings, the chandelier made of recycled beer bottles and Pixie's symphony of life.

I love the moving lights. It shows that motion. And I like the Danny Kaye quote too. It's so important to paint that canvas just like you want it to be. Have a super T day and Thanksgiving Cloudia. hugs-Erika

We went down to see the migrating birds on the water and it was SO cold!

I love that Danny Kaye quote. I used it once when I created a piece of art with paint. Pixie looks good and photogenic today.

That light created with the inverted Corona bottles is perfect for T this Tuesday. Thanks for sharing it with us, dear Cloudia. Have a super T Tuesday, dear.

We throw as much paint as we can at our canvas. It makes life more fun!

Danny Kaye was a wonderful actor, loved his films in the good old days! No sun here, just clouds today, but that's the way it is! Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

A beach morning would be pleasant. It's gray, rainy, and chilly here. Happy T Tuesday

Cloudia, you always find the most beautiful quotes. I love the images that go with them too. Ahhh a walk on the beach that is warm and sunny.
Give Pixie a pat for me and have a lovely day today.
