A Discovering

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Anyone can slay a dragon...
but try waking up every morning
and loving the world all over again.
That's what takes a real hero.
  Brian Andreas

The more you walk,
the better you feel.
The more you lift, the
more muscle you build.
The more you get outside,
the happier you are.
The more hard things you do,
the easier your life becomes.
Walk. Lift. Get outside.
Do hard things.
This is the way.
James DiNicolantonio

 I have never started
a poem yet whose end I knew. Writing a poem
is discovering. Robert Frost

Red-Crested Cardinal / Brazilian Cardinal

It's not what you 
look at that matters,
it's what you see.

You should conduct 
yourself in life 
as at a feast.

Life is a banquet
and most poor suckers
are starving to death!
 Rosalind Russell
in AUNTIE MAME (1958)


Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

That video looks really fun! Pixie says, "What? Life is a feast? Where is my unlimited supply of tuna treats?" Thanks for the morning smorgasbord of fun.

Hello Pixie and Cloudia,
I love the Robert Frost quote about writing poetry. I find it true about poetry and pretty much all other writings as well. The Red-Crested Cardinal is beautiful. Wishing you a lovely rest of the week.

What beautiful quotes. I know I am happier when I spend time outside and I love the challenge of learning something new!
