Two Word Wisdom

A L O H A From Honolulu!

All who joy would win
must share it.
Happiness was
born a Twin.
Lord Byron

Everything we hear is an opinion,

not a fact. Everything we see is

a perspective, not the truth.

 Marcus Aurelius 

Enjoy the journey,
the stumbles, the climb,
The lessons that linger
with the passage of time.

Short stories and poems are
an intense burst of emotions.

Two word wisdom
light and brief,
A simple truth
To life's relief:
"Enjoy it"

Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

Awesome photos, Cloudia! I had to look up those last shots of the Gold Dust Geckos. I think I've only seen them a handful of times in the islands but didn't know what they were called.

"Everything we see is a perspective"
This reminds me of the meme of a cylinder. From an end, it looks like a circle. From the side, it looks like a square.

Hello Cloudia :=)

It seems other bloggers are as appreciative of the Marcus Aurelius quote as I am. It' s so true. Congrats on your book.That colourful lizard is so beautiful. I also posted lizards, but they are very plain by comparison.but they are lovely creatures. Hugs to Pixi.
All the best

Pixie swears she just saw a lizard.

Those lizards are amazing — such a bright green, but I guess they can hide in very bright foliage.
best, mae at

Is Marcus Aurelius presenting his opinion as a fact?

I think you have a gecko garden! They smile at you! Linda in Kansas

Better to form your own opinion.
