Thoughts on 


Eyes that see no hatred.

"We need solitude,
because when we're alone,
we're free from obligations,
we don't need to put on a show,
and we can
HEAR our own thoughts."
Tamin Ansary

Try to see the world through the eyes of a child/animal.

Eyes that are not yet cynical or skeptical. 

Eyes that marvel at everything they see. 

The lessons we learn from children about life 

are so much more important than the lessons we teach them.

 Think happy thoughts.
Leslie Inner Calm Reiki

"Being alone is very difficult."
Yoko Ono

But I believe my alone time
is what makes me appreciate everyone and everything.

What do you think?

Enjoy your day 
be it alone or not
and take good care of you.

I see lots of very happy moments in these photos, Karen. And some terrific eyes. I guess "The Eyes Have It" has never been more true!

Sadly too many children and animals ARE sceptical. With good cause.
Solitude is a necessity for me. A thought provoking post - thank you.

Ah, I so agree about solitude and appreciation our human connectedness..... We teach kids by example, and of course they sense better and happy ways to handle things and people..~ thank you, Karen for so generous comments at my blog! Blessings!

I love this. I agree, The eyes of a child and those of an animal see things as they really are. We become jaded, seeing thigs through our experiences.

I need alone time. I need it. Some people do not understand that about me, but, I need to think and hear myself. I bet you understand that.
