Wisest And Best

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Every year of my life
I grow more convinced that it
is wisest and best
to fix our attention on the beautiful and good
and dwell as little
as possible on the
dark and the base.
Richard Cecil

No place is Someplace
when it's a
Beautiful Place.
Green Ti Plants,
Palm Trees &
A Rainbow Shower Tree
say: Waikiki

The turtle lays thousands of eggs
without anyone knowing, but
when the hen lays an egg,
the whole country is informed.
        Malay Proverb

Two word wisdom

Light and brief A simple truth For life's relief: Enjoy It!

Enjoy the journey The tumbles, the climb Lessons that linger With the passage of time.

Cloudia Charters

One must still have chaos
in oneself to be able to
give birth to a dancing star.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Good morning Claudia, have a nice week! You have once again given me beautiful images from a country so far away!! I liked the quote that says to focus our attention on the positive things that are happening! I always think that from every person we meet in our life we ​​should keep their positives and ignore the negatives (as far as it doesn't bother us).

Turtle is a silent endeavour.

Love that little sliver of Moon.

The life story of the turtles is a wonder to behold.

A glorious post today. Pixie says, "Give me more catnip, and I will release the chaos within in a wild furry dance routine. We will all be joyful."

Cloudia said...

Delightful Friends!

Good morning. I've been MIA for a few days.

RedPat said...

A thoughtful and beautiful post today, Cloudia. ;-)

Barbara Rogers said...

Thanks for including the mundane with the beautiful...the guy stopping to have a drink with his cart full of brooms!

"Light and brief"
I'm always brief. Light I am not.

Martha Jane Orlando said...

Another inspirational post. Thanks, Cloudia and Pixie!

Bill said...

The turtle arrives at its destination after a long journey. A beautiful creature indeed!

Your journey quote is perfect for us after a disappointing weekend in dog sports. It is a journey, but it is hard to not be impatient. We have to do better at sitting back and enjoying the journey, not just the wins.

Nas said...

Loved all the quotes and memes. Thank you sharing. Some were very inspiring.

Sandee said...

My name is Erika. said...

I'm at the point where dark and base is getting scary to even think about. Happy T day you and Pixie too. I also love the turtle photo.

Sea turtles are fascinating. I once watched one lay her eggs on an island in the Great Barrier Reef. It was impressive. Another time I saw the eggs hatching and the tiny turtles stumbling down the sand while sea birds were trying to scoop them up for a nice bite.
best, mae at

Kathy G said...

Out of all the thoughts today I liked yours the best.

Iris Flavia said...

Wise quotes again and that man drinking... just like here, now I feel Aloha! :-)

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I love the palm tree, but have never heard of a Rainbow Shower Tree before. Loved the guy with the cart and his energy drink. They both say Waikiki. Loved the shot of Pixie, too. Thanks for this wonderful entry you shared for T this Tuesday, dear Cloudia.

Lisca said...

I love the turtle. Thanks.
And Pixie is look as dapper as ever.
Great little poem.
Happy T-Day,

Dear Cloudia,
I agree with Richard Cecil (and probably with you too) - I fix my attention on the beautiful and good and enjoy the journey :-)
All the best to you and Pixie and happy T-Day, Traude
