Simply, Plain Sailing

Or flying with one's head in the clouds, kind of day.

"Clouds come floating into my life,
no longer to carry rain or usher storm,
but to add color to my sunset sky."
Rabindranath Tagore

"Living simply is voluntary poetry."- 
Seneca The Younger

"We learn not in the school, but in life."

Catch a smile- throw a smile back!
Simply said-
Anything is possible when leaving a camera in the hands of a child!

"The heart, like the mind, has a memory,
and in it are kept the most precious keepsakes."
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Nobody ever said getting your feet wet was a bad thing!
Shoes off, come on in, stay a long while.

Sometimes, a picture says it all.

"A torn jacket is soon mended, but hard words bruise the heart of a child."
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
(actually anyone with a beating heart.)

"You use and lose a lot of energy being grumpy."
 Ted Danson

How about a hug grumpy face?

"Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dared to think."
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none."
William Shakespeare

Always, Smell the Flowers.

"Hang on to your youthful enthusiasms, 
you'll be able to use them better when you're older."

It's just that simple.

When a tree offers to tell you a story, listen.

Simply put.

Always make room for family.
It was wonderful to see my cousin, Linda (she moved to Alabama after college) and I hadn't seen her in years!

Are so good to catch up!

Even when the eyes are closed,
and sleep has arrived,
 our brain is always awake.

Thinking, thinking.... and say how do you do?  Even if he's a Minion.

Seneca quoted-
"As in a tale, so is life: not how long it is, 
but how good it is, is what matters."

and I totally agree. Just as importantly is how good blogging together is for our souls.  I treasure every single one of you, in and out of blogging, and sharing this Bloggersville experience together makes life so good.  Enjoy your day!
