Bow Wow Tao

Good morning! Welcome to 


as I post for City Daily Photo 

Dogs exist in their moments ignoring time, except they have the uncanny sense in knowing when their people will be arriving home. Cats, well the ones I know have that same sense for their people! Imagine how wonderful it would be to be more like them, go with the flow and just be yourself.

Let your cuteness shine!

Never let a good day go to waste!

The world needs both leaders and followers.

Become more patient.

But keep your eyes open!

Always stand up for what you believe.

A few Pride Parade dogs I captured.

Peace with yourself leads to peace with the world.

The heart's song needs no audience.

Every dog has its day.

Patience is a virtue.

Bumble Bee Pup

There is nothing perfect, only life. Sue Monk Kidd

I have noticed that if you look carefully at people's eyes

the first five seconds they look at you

the truth of their feelings will shine through

for just an instant before it flickers away.

Sue Monk Kidd

The search for enlightenment often leads to strange and mysterious places.

Direction gives life clarity. 

"Be still like a mountain and flow like a great river." Lao-Tzu 

and this flower is for you! 

Thanks for sharing your time with me.

Take good care of you and enjoy your day.

Stroll Along a Few Ordinary Moments

Posting for City Daily Photo and You! 

Hello everyone, how about strolling along with me for a few ordinary moments in town? I woke up this morning feeling excited about the day, knowing it being a day off I'll decide whatever comes natural. Okay the cooler morning air and birds singing around me as I watered flowers contributed lots. As you might not guess for a moment I reflected on just a few frozen tundra moments I experienced in that very spot during February of this year. Brrrr!

Welcome summertime! 

and the living is easy, fish are jumping and cotton is high! by Sam Cooke

Don't be shy follow along with us.

We find joy in ordinary places

catching strangers 

enjoying their own moments of the day.

I send my worries to the seas and open my soul to an ocean of peace.

Mary Davis

Your tools can only get you so far. It's your attitude that makes the real difference 
and your choices.

Take that carriage ride. Join friends or family unexpectedly for lunch or a walk through town.

Sometimes walking is better. Park the car. Get off your bike. Smell the flowers.

"Stay teachable. Keep an open mind, and try to learn from all types of situations." Daki Savic 

So many enriching moments seeing life through the eyes of a child.

and don't forget all those teachable moments as you meet new furry friends.

Never forget your Gnomie friends either!

Not every cloud that darkens the day brings rain. Heitharvega Saga c.7

and yet rain we need, ask any flower.

Use a few moments to sit and wander 
 lost in your own thoughts
and cherish your reflections
while pondering within the reality
that surrounds you.

Welcome wisdom from wherever you can.

The best things in life aren't things.

I'm thankful for you visits and your friendship.

Stay strong, happy and take good care of you.

A No Contact Lunch

To rejuvenate I enjoy treating myself to a city lunch as anyone who works with the pubic a lot understands the necessity of this! Park my car, begin walking, sightseeing and most especially smell the flowers before choosing a place to eat. It's relaxing to observe in a rhythm and flow that focuses on the little stuff we often overlook.

Posting for City Daily Photo  and the Present Moment!

It was an ordinary day, but I'll remember it amazingly different.

 If you walk in joy, happiness is close behind. Todd Stocker

Spend more time doing things that make you forget about time. Charlotte Eriksson

A building's architecture is a visual art and each building as a story within them from creaking floorboards to creative stonework and solid bricks representing years of being a part of the community. Like this once upon a time Fire Station is now an art gallery and cafe.

Call it walking meditation or a neighborhood stroll; by whatever name suits you, rediscover the art of meandering. Gina Greenlee

I find comfort in the rhythm of walking and observing.

Be motivated and unstoppable in your journey 
even if it's just around the corner. Carry on. Watch. Listen. 
It's the greatest skill you'll ever own.

Dear World, I am excited to be alive in you and I'm thankful for another year. 

Charlotte Erkisson

This life is what you make it. Or plant it. If you imagine it,
it becomes real.

I'll never stop appreciating anything with wheels.

Well the decision for lunch was easy, feed your taste buds, knowingly.

Time and time again I eat at The Grocer's Table as often as I can. They create soups I've possibly only dreamed of, and so far each one is incredibly delicious!

Awakened at midday
by the sound of the water jug
cracking from the ice.
Matsuo Basho and me.

One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.
Virginia Woolf

Thanks for stopping in. Enjoy your weekend and adventures.

Take good care of you.

City Life

My City Daily Photo posting. Please enjoy.

City Life, It's What We Do.

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you

something else is the greatest accomplish.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Some of my Target co-workers and I showed our support for The Pride Parade 2021 in Hastings on Saturday.

It doesn't matter what choices you make

just do something!


Live. Laugh. Enjoy yourself.

You're either walking in the parade or you watch it.

Either way, you're a participant making things happen.

Being a part of something is the only homeland!

There is no written rule book about what you're capable of.

You hold the key!

Or possibly you're partaking in an artsy adventure!

Or owning your nature moments!

With a pending storm scheduled for the evening safety was key!

Some city folks take to putting up tents, in their own backyards!

Taking in games at the parade!

 Fruit is a lot like life. If you don't bite into it while it's all juicy and delicious

 it ripens and goes bad.

Everyone had a blast Saturday, even beforehand while we filled water balloons! 

Love Wins!

Thank you for stopping in.

I appreciate your thoughts and comments, always a gift.

Take good care of you!

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path 

and leave a trail. Waldo Ralph Emerson

Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.
