Right Now Is the Time to Be Kind.
You cannot do a kindness too soon,
for you never know
how soon it will be too late.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~
How can one prevent a drop of water from ever drying up?
………….By throwing it into the sea
from the film Samsara,
How can a person deal with anxiety? You might try what one fellow did. He worried so much that he decided to hire someone to do his worrying for him. He found a man who agreed to be his hired worrier for a salary of $200,000 per year. After the man accepted the job, his first question to his boss was, “Where are you going to get $200,000 per year?” To which the man responded, “That’s your worry.”
Fish or Baked Beans?
No matter what you do you can’t predict the answer.
Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes,
It’s not what you look at that matters;
it’s what you see.
~ Henry David Thoreau ~
( I had a different quote & photo for today, but I can’t find it, so we’ll have a quote which I have posted before. My image library has lost its ‘date taken’ order too, so it was first image which I could find LOL 😀 )
You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head,
but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair.
~ Chinese Proverb ~
God made rainy days so gardeners could get the housework done.
The thunder roared. The lightning flashed and when it started raining this morning, it REALLY rained.
Heavy, soaking, real rain ALL day, and now, at 10.00pm it’s still raining heavily. None of this pretend rain that sprinkles a few droplets that dries up before I go back indoors.
Rain for the next few days according to the forecast.
Please, please rain in the countryside, down the coast and up in the mountains! Please, please rain on the bushfires. I don’t care how muddy it gets. I don’t care how many puddles you make or dams you fill. I don’t even care if you create new creeks, rivers and lakes. Just keep on coming.
The best way to capture moments is to pay attention. This is how we cultivate mindfulness.
While I hear them every day, especially in the cool of the morning, this female Superb Fairy-wren is the only one I’ve managed to photograph in about 3 weeks in my Balcony Garden.
