Bringing It Together

Always do your part. 
You just never know when your compassion and empathy
is extremely vital.
On the ending of a wonderful family day and incredible 70 something degree sunny day we walked to a nearby park where I encountered a blown-out-of-proportion situation.  Apparently 3 twenty-something individuals felt the need to call law enforcement to remove this extremely dangerous dog from the park.
The officer seemed to agree, but if you know me at all I immediately came to this poor pups aid and clearly his loving nature prevailed. Yes! First I know that owners must be responsible, I don't care how old your beloved pet is and that he knows his way home, and loves visiting folks at the park, go there with him. We brought ours on a leash. Our world has far too many, so they believe to be well-doers doing their job- they totally lack knowledge, understanding-empathy. 

So just how scary is this cute, (on actual sight he walks very slowly) ?

No one is useless in this world 
who lightens the burden of it for anyone else.
Charles Dickens

I still believe in fairy tales
and happy endings.

Make things happen for the good.

"The meaning of life is just to be alive.
It is so plain and so obvious and so simple.
And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it
were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves."
Alan Wilson Watts

Cease trying to work everything out with your minds.
It will get you nowhere.
Live by intuition and inspiration
 and let your whole life be revelation.
Eileen Caddy
Overcome the notion that you must be regular

it robs you of the chance to be extraordinary.
Uta Hagen

"This is the  real secret of life
to be completely engaged with what you are doing
in the here and now.
And instead of calling it work
realize it is play."
Alan Watts

Set your sights high, the higher the better.
Expect the most wonderful things to happen,
not in the future but right now.
Realize that nothing is too good.
Allow absolutely nothing to hamper you
or hold you up in any way.
Go for it.

Music gives a soul to the universe
wings to the mind
flight to the imagination
and life to everything.

Encourage one another in every way possible
every soul needs encouragement.
By helping others, we grow.

It is important from time to time
to slow down
to go away by yourself
and simply be.
Eileen Caddy
No pressures.

It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.
E.E. Cummings

Keeping my
Eyes wide open.

What roams about your world today?


"You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us. And the world will be as one." John Lennon

Let your heart sing! 

How about a game of

Duck, duck, goose!

When you feel you've lost that feeling of connection-
it means it's time to reminisce all over again.

A tree says, 
A kernel is hidden in me, a spark, a thought,
I am life from eternal life.
Be still and observe. 
Hermann Hesse Baume.

I love when memories make me feel at home.

What's your "go to" song?

If you say Yummy, Yummy I've got love in my tummy then well I know just how you're feeling!  Or Sugar, Sugar! Oh yeah.

Go ahead be the first to, Shock the world. Why not. Just Be silly!

"Whatever I like, even after a long time, I still like it."

There's a special place in my heart for ALL snowmen. Always.

and besides snowmen it's fun to just hang with your best buddy.

It keeps me humble to know exactly where I came from 
and all the hard work I put in to be here.

After looking at this piece of art,
what's your first thought that comes to mind?

Working with your hands, is a marvelous feeling.

Pleasure in the job
puts perfection in the work.


Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.
