Monday Reflections

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! The videos I have selected for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Your Smile - Michael Logozar

The Incredible Bond between Human and Horse

For the following, I am providing the link sources beneath each photo.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.

There are no failures, just experiences and your reactions to them. - Tom Krause




When someone is going through a storm, your silent presence is more powerful than a million empty words. - Thelma Davis


I you can be one thing today, be kind.


Did you know this about cats?  Cats sleep for 70% of their lives.  Female cats are typically right-pawed. Males are typically left-pawed.  Cats are more popular than dogs in America" 88 million cats vs 74 million dogs.  Cats make more than 100 sounds. Dogs only make 10.  Owning a cat reduces your heart attack risk by more than a third.


Turn your attention to the silence of the heart, to the space of no judgment in you, ever loving, no matter what thoughts you may be having.








When I look up at the night sky I somehow know you'll always watch over me.


Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share.

  7. According to the words above, seeing that we have owned in our lives, 12 cats, and if owning one cat reduces heart attack risk by 1/3, we will have a good chance of not having one!!! Funny , that, as Hugh had 2, on the same day. Maybe the new ginger boy will add extra goodness to his risk factor.

  16. Hi, dear Linda! I enjoyed the soothing piano melody performed by Michael Logozar. I always appreciate seeing videos about animals and humans bonding and the one showing the deep rapport between that woman and her horses brought tears. When I was 8 years old the Four Preps had a hit with "26 Miles," a song about Santa Catalina. It was nice to see that video tour of the island and all its natural beauty and wildlife.

    Happy Monday, dear friend Linda!

  17. The balloon attack was fun. When I was a teen, I lived in Los Angeles and always wanted to visit Catalina Island. Got close once on a boat trip but never made it...it's very beautiful. And isn't it amazing how well we can bond with our animal cousins at times?

  21. I'll keep an eye on my cat and see which paw he leads with. I like to have little tidbits like that to hand.

  22. Those horses are like over-grown pups. Great stuff. Though I'd pass on the smooches.

  23. " When I look up at the night sky I somehow know you'll always watch over me." Oh my, I loved it so much. I listened to the music Your Smile while I read your entire blog. It was so easy to listen to and read. Monday's aren't my best day but since I've found your blog with some laughter, easy music and beautiful thoughts Monday is like everyday, great. Thanks Linda. See ya.

  28. Hahaha, "Laughing Colours" made me laugh!
    I didn't know about female kitties typically right-pawed and males left-pawed. I sometimes wondered if my boys are right or left-pawed. I will observe and see which paw they use more!
