Wise Old Owl

“A wise old owl sat on an oak; 
The more he saw the less he spoke; 
The less he spoke the more he heard; 
Why aren't we like that wise old bird?”

Raindrops


Raindrops Raindrops
Are such funny things.
They haven't feet or haven't wings.
Yet they sail through the air
With the greatest of ease,
And dance on the street
Wherever they please. 
~Author Unknown~

In The Imagination

The color of springtime is in the flowers; 
the color of winter is in the imagination.

Johnny's Donuts

Johnny's Donuts 

had Kids day this weekend.

It made everyone's Hippie Heart Happy!

Thank You!


Even when freshly washed 

and relieved of all obvious confections, 

children tend to be sticky.

Memory


And the price of a memory is the memory of the sorrow it brings
And there is always one last light to turn out and one last bell to ring
And the last one out of the circus has to lock up everything
~Counting Crows~

Contently and Sanely


The secret to living
 contently and sanely 
in this modern world is to... 
find the beautiful in the ugly-
but don't get confused 
which is which.

Demand It

 
Freedom is never given voluntarily by the oppressor;
It must be demanded by the oppressed.
~Martin Luther King Jr.~

Happiness

 
  Happiness is like a cat.
 If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you.
 It will never come.
 But if you pay no attention to it 
and go about your business,
 you'll find it rubbing up against your legs
 and jumping into your lap. 
~William Bennett~

To live remains an art 
which everyone must learn, 
and which no one can teach.

Nourishment and Refreshment



True silence is 
the rest of the mind, 
and is to the spirit 
what sleep is to the body, 
nourishment and refreshment.

Never stop looking!

Good & Bad


Weather is a great metaphor
 for life —
 sometimes it's good, 
sometimes it's bad,
 and there's nothing much you can do
 about it 
but carry an umbrella.

Distortion

We spend so much time trying to think clearly
that we forget to find the beauty in distortion.

Fly

 
He who would learn to fly one day 
must first learn to 
stand and walk and run and climb and dance; 
one cannot fly into flying.  
~Friedrich Nietzsche~

Sisters

If you don't understand
how a girl could both love her sister dearly
and want to wring her neck at the same time,
then you were probably an only child!

To live in a good environment,
to have planted good seeds,
and to realize that you are on the right path –
this is the greatest happiness.

It's January.
It's cold.
So, I thought a little June would make our cold hippie hearts a bit warmer!
Enjoy your bit of June!

Inability to Think

What a blessing it is to be alone with your thoughts 
when so many are alone with their 
inability to think.

No Mercy

Nature has no mercy at all. 
Nature says, "I'm going to snow. 
If you have on a bikini and no snowshoes, that's tough. 
I am going to snow anyway."

January


January opens
The box of the year
And brings out days
That are bright and clear
And brings out days
That are cold and grey
And shouts, "Come see
What I brought today!"
~ Leland B. Jacobs~
