Loves Laughing

A L O H A From Honolulu!

But what can I do,
I'm just one person,
said 7 billion people. 
   David Richeson 

The one cool thing
with getting older is that
you can actively choose
to just be an eccentric.
Greg Behrendt

That so few now dare
to be eccentric, marks
the chief danger of the time.
John Stuart Mill

I've never once heard
my mum shout and
she's 83 now.
She's incredible. She's very,
very happy, slightly eccentric but
loves laughing, which I do too.
     Carol Vorderman

Be gentle
with a heart that's kind,
Acknowledge feeling
let your spirit unwind.
Passing storm
Yet peaceful mind.

All factions fall short
of SatisFaction.

Love You,

Fairy tales are more than true:
not because they tell us
that dragons exist, but 
because they tell us that
dragons can be beaten.
    Neil Gaiman

Love that mural. Neil Gaiman is one of my heroes - on lots of levels. And hooray for eccentricity and eccentrics.

The dragon mural is in fluorescent green. How unique. I wonder how that would look at night

I like your quote about kindness,

We should all unite in our admiration of Pixie and love of laughing and eccentricity. Personally, I think the dragons are awesome, except for maybe Smaug in the Hobbit, but most are kind and wise and eccentric.
