Life lived in black and white
Would be dreary gray indeed

Colors liven up our sight
A splash is what we need

Color is the spice of life
Adding punch to any scene

A visual smorgasbord
Red, yellow, blue and green

Aah . . . that’s better!

Quote to Ponder:  The real miracle is not to walk on water, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child, our own two eyes. All is a miracle. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Playing With My Palette October 15, 2012

Today, I shall pull out my paints and play with my palette
Creating the world anew

Pink palms, tasseled with yellow fronds
Green skies, punctuated with purple clouds
Blue grass underfoot, and falling leaves filling the air

After all, words only take one so far
But dreams, dreams . . . hold the promise of infinity

Aah . . . that’s better!

Quote to Ponder:  Artists can color the sky red because they know it’s blue. Those of us who aren’t artists must color things the way they really are or people might think we’re stupid. ~ Jules Feiffer

Life is a Juggling Act October 15, 2012

Life is a juggling act.   

At times, we have so many “balls” in the air that one gets away from us and  drops with a resounding thud.  Or a clattering clunk.      

When you hear that resounding sound, take a lesson from your cat . . .

Act unperturbed.  

“What?!  I meant to do that!  It’s all part of the act.” 

Aah . . . that’s better!
