Do Joy

A L O H A From Honolulu!

is not essential. Mutual Respect is.

And the Fairy of Dreams
with moth-wings furled
Plays soft on her flute
to the drowsy world.
Ida Rentoul Outhwaite

We are formed and
molded by our thoughts.
Those whose minds are
shaped by selfless thoughts
give joy when they speak or act.
Joy follows them like a shadow
that never leaves them.

The one who
tells the stories
rules the world.
Hopi proverb

Life is short and
if you're not careful
you'll spend so much time
doing everything you 'have' to do
that you'll run out of time for things
that bring you joy. Make space.
It's never convenient.
It's always worth it. Michell C. Clark

It seems lotsa folks have a carriage for their doggies in the big tropical city. Is that to keep them from getting stepped on my locals and visitors? Hope my past doggies weren't deprived... Linda in Kansas

Joy is always welcome. As are stories.

Cloudia said...

Thanks sisters

I love the gummi bear art and the dog with shades and Pixie looking for someone to help her put on her reading glasses that are right in front of her. She can't let a drooling dog beat her out in the eyewear fashion show. Great quotes, too.

Love that last quote from Clark, Cloudia. Pixie thinks she wants sunglasses too. ;-)

Couture Carrie said...

Great to hear from you, darling!
Gorgeous pics!

Joy banishes negative thoughts from ourselves and others. How I needed the reminder today, Cloudia. Blessings!

"The one who tells the stories rules the world."
This was true before paper. Once paper came along, people who less have a better chance.

Wonderfully wise words and always love the photos, of Pixie especially and that little dog with the sunglasses is oh so cute!
