Each of the sayings this week is particularly profound, Sylvia. The quote by White is indicative of the busy mind that is often conflicted between enjoying what is and the urge to transform each moment into something better. I love your header this time around. It is so airy and light and many of the activities in the scene remind me of my own fictional character and her antics. Hope you and yours had a great Easter weekend!

I love your new header and photos, Sylvia! Your format is ideal for posting pictures. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and writing such meaningful comments. Much appreciated!

Loran said...

Oh, look at those tulips! I want the whole bucket!

Great header too! Hope you had a wonderful Easter.

George said...

Your photos are beautiful -- I really like that waterfall. But your quotes are also wonderful and profound. I like both James and White quotes very much. Thanks for a great post.

Perfect pictures Sylvia!

Wonderful pictures - so full of joy!

Kay L. Davies said...

Beautiful photos for spring in your world, Sylvia. Your quotations are super. I especially like the Don Marquis quote. I've been quoting his "archy and mehitabel" for years, the part about "warty bliggens, the toad" who thought the world had been created especially for him.

Your world is very beautiful . Nice waterfalls .

Pat said...

Beautiful waterfall, beach, ladies and tulips, Sylvia! So, do you move in to your new apartment on Saturday? How exciting! I hope the move goes smoothly.

stardust said...

The last quote has made me stop and think, while about “friend” and “belief on life’s worth living” and others, I simply nodded. Like snow-white, I spotted company badge of Kikkoman Soy Sauce Co. on the bucket of tulips...., smiles.

All the photos are uplifting and refreshing. Thank you, Sylvia, for sharing. Be well prepared for the move and take care!

Linda Reeder said...

Love the waterfall photo and the quote even more... Guess I received way too little "education" and learned mostly from the school of hard knocks!

I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
