Life Rafts and Critters That Delight

 Welcome everyone to another 


I'm also posting to City Daily Photo

Honest seeing - through the eyes of your dog,

or another beloved critter.


Or perhaps a witty Scarecrow.

How I know it's going to be a marvelous day,

 is always determined by what feeds my mind.

Your thoughts are everything.

"Nothing is stronger than a small hope that doesn't give up" Matt Haig 
and I add, the bond between you and your beloved critters.

It's all about unconditional love. No judging. It ensures emotional health for all. 

Hello from my daughter's dog, Athena.

Of course, human beings are important but what gives you joy and endless caring in your life? Think about it.


"Believe the incredible, and you can do the impossible."

Bishop Fulton J. Sheen


"Just as dogs were thwarted wolves, parks were thwarted forests. Human loved both, possibly because humans were, well, thwarted."

Matt Haig

"We are beautiful beings." 

Lailah Gifty Akita

"Your opinions about me does not change who I am."
Lailah Gifty Akita 

Advice for humans.
Our critters live this way.

"Do not fall for categories. Everyone is everything. Every ingredient inside a star is inside you,
 and every personality that ever existed competes in the theatre of your mind for the main role."
Matt Haig

"The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts."

Marcus Aurelius 

"If you think something is ugly, look harder. Ugliness is just a failure of seeing."
Matt Haig

"No one will understand you. It is not, ultimately, that important. What is important is that you understand you."
Matt Haig

"Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars and see yourself running with them."
Marcus Aurelius

Never underestimate the power of reading.

Always, carry a bag of happy moments with you.

Don't forget for those of us that acknowledge Daylight Savings Time we set our clocks back at 2 am or earlier tonight if you go to bed before that. 

Thanks for you visit and comments 
and may sunshine and happiness follow you everywhere you go.

Take good care of you.

I know Marcus Aurelius from having to read him in college. Who is Matt Haig? Love the look on that black dog's face.He seems to be a wise old boy.

Amazing post! Enjoyed reading it. That lovely creature that I think is an owl with combs for feet, had me laughing.
