Six Word Fridays - Cup

"Life is a beautiful and endless 
journey in search of the perfect
 cup." Quote by Barbara A. Daniels 

Every now and then a little
 rain must fall over our sunshine.

...and so I grab my cup
and sometimes a dog or munchkin-

and we seek our special haven.

"We all have these places where 
shy humiliations gambol on sunny afternoons."
W. H. Auden

This is just one of my 
secret places you'd suspect as being
a secluded utopia, hidden within a 
remote area of town far away .

Surprise, it's the center of town, offering free mood-pick-me-ups. 

Put your heart, mind, and soul
 into even your smallest acts.  This 
is the secret of all success.
- Swami Sivananda

"I believe I have a sunny
 disposition, and am not naturally a
 grouch.  It takes a lot of 
optimism, after all, being a traveler." 
Paul Theroux

But it's places like this that 
make a sunny side of life 
swell within my heart and soul.

We don't always need to run 
off into the sunset.  Sometimes just 
  crossing one more bridge will do.

 Our sunny side of life is
 there waiting for you and me.

 Hopefully, a cup of coffee too.

It looked to be a natural getaway far in the woods. The City fathers must have thought it necessary to have one in town!

Who wouldn't want to walk on such a bridge.

I would find my sunshine crossing the bridge and spending some time in beautiful place like that. What a peaceful way to spend an afternoon.

My haven is even closer to home, if I ever get time to sit and enjoy my garden it's brilliant :) Wonderfully relaxing images for us here, happy weekend Karen.

Isn't it wonderful to have a special spot to be able to disappear to, to walk, to sit, to smell, to breathe? This one is a real gem and I can see why you love it.
