More than a Dance

If dance be the food of happiness, dance on!

Life is like sailing.
You can use any wind
to go in any direction.

It feels good to be lost in the right direction.

Humor can get in under the door
while seriousness is still fumbling at the handle.

That's why I truly enjoying hanging with my favorite munchkins! 

Backseat selfie! 

There is a road from the eye to the heart
that does not go through the intellect.
G.K. Chesterton

A shout out to Eileen's SATURDAY'S CRITTERS!

Taking a break to smell the flowers!
Or eat a bug?

There are no dreary sights;
there are only dreary sightseers. 

Remember that.

More than a dance of raindrops.

The things we see every day
are the things we never see at all.

If seeds in the black earth can turn into such beautiful roses
what might not the heart of man become
in it's long journey toward the stars?

G.K. Chesterson

Raindrops are like fairy whispers.

"There are no uninteresting things,
only uninterested people."
G. K. Chesterton

Interesting that they offered some hands on art!
Twirl and see what happens.

"Do a loony-goony dance
'Cross the kitchen floor'
Put something silly in the world
That ain't been there before."
Shel Silverstein

These next photos are of my favorite piece today. I'd enjoy something just like this, in fact I think I might give it a whirl!

My thought for the day, is something a great majority of Americans are pondering about yet, after these last whirlwind of spins from the White House. This quote puts it into perspective, really.

"The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him,
but because he loves what is behind him."
G.K. Chesterfield

Take good care everyone
and no matter what
do your happy dance
at least once a day!

I love that weird metal castle and the photo where the fish are surrealistically reflected on the side.

And the Statue of Liberty!

I played a softshoe just for you.

A pair of elves is almost as good as one gnome.
