Moonbeam Song

Lately, it seems we go from one tragic moment to the next.  We're finding ourselves lost in deep ugly thoughts from the hands of others.

Well Martin Luther King offered many perfect quotes in times like this.

"We must learn to live together as brothers
or perish together as fools."


"Darkness cannot drive out darkness:
Only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate.
Only love can do that."

and I believe nature.
and Moonbeams.
And blue skies.

The thing about
they are real.

as real as life.

As real as the little tidbits life offers.


As real as horses.

"There is nothing so good for the inside of a man
as the outside of a horse."
John Lubbock

"We all live under the same sky
but we don't all have the same horizon."
Konrad Adenauer

"Now come the whispers
bearing bouquets of moonbeams
and sunlight tremblings."

Have you ever watched a moonbeam
As it slid across your windowpane
Or struggled with a bit of rain
Or danced about the weathervane
Or sat along a moving train
And wondered where the train has been?

When life offers us the blues-
Remember what Duke said.

"I merely took the energy it takes to pout and wrote some blues."
Duke Ellington

When I took this picture,
 I was capturing more than beautiful clouds!

"Life is colorful, enjoy every moment.

"There is beauty
heartbreaking beauty
Edward Abbey

From a child's laughter.

When we bloom as if we were flowers.

Dare to go out and live 
out loud.

Yes, there have been cows known to ride over the moon too!

Thanks for stopping by and
May happiness and love follow you everywhere you go.
