National Sympathy Orchestra

 A L O H A From Honolulu!
Praise and blame, 
gain and loss,
pleasure and sorrow
come and go like the wind.

  To be happy,
rest like a giant tree,
in the midst of them all.

I hope when I inevitably choke to death on gummy bears, people will just say I was killed by bears and leave it at that.
Thanks Mike!

With happiness 
comes intelligence
to the heart.

Love is never lost. If not reciprocated, it will flow back and soften and purify the heart.

I love the quotes about the gummy bears and love flowing back and around to soften things up. I can't tell if Pixie is thinking about choking to death on gummy bears or looking at the pigeon and wondering if it will play with her.

'Killed by bears!' That is a hoot.

When you share love with others, it is guaranteed to come back to you in some way or another.
