The greatest wisdom often unfolds from the deepest wounds.


Shoot for the moon.  Even it you miss, you'll land among the stars.


Nature loves to become aware of itself through you.
Eckhart Tolle


You'll end up really disappointed if you think people will do for you as you do for them.  Not everyone has the same heart as you.








Plant seeds of love everywhere you go.




There's nothing in this world that can trouble you as much as your own thoughts.


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.

  13. Hi Linda
    I noticed you commented on my blog at notesfromthecamera. Thanks for stopping by. I'm always curious about my readers. I'm a big fan of Canadians. My wife spent a year working there and I have many Canadian friends, all of them exceptionally nice people.
    I'll follow your blog. Maybe we can chat sometime.
    Cheers

  14. It's a good gag today...love to see the look on the faces of those being conned! And I can look at cat videos all day long. Don't have to, though, cause our two are funny enough! One of them just came flying into the office and almost knocked the door down! Sheesh!

  18. Good morning, dear Linda!

    I never thought of it before but it makes sense that videos featuring the behavioral antics of cats and kittens are numerous and very popular on YouTube and other social media. Mrs. Shady and I eat a lot of fish and she watched this fish preparation video with me just now. She says she uses the same salt and sugar procedure to prepare steak. It was very relaxing to listen to Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" and watch those beautiful fish.

    I want to thank you for the vote of confidence you gave me on Cherdo's blog yesterday. That was very kind of you! Please note that tomorrow is a travel day for me. It might take hours longer for me to get over here to your blog but I will a.s.a.p. Thanks again, dear friend Linda!

  23. It's so easy to have trouncing thoughts in the present day world. Meanwhile in the UK the dishes proliferate but I steadfastly refuse to have one.

  25. I do love to watch cat videos, and this was no exception. I did a double take when I saw the picture on the "Meanwhile in Canada" poster. I had seen almost the same thing in New York a few years ago. It looked like a beaver lodge with a satellite dish. Doug and I had quite a chuckle over it at the time. Happy Canada Day to you, my friend.

  26. Happy Canada Day Linda. It's our day to celebrate. I loved the beaver picture. I wonder what they were watching? Maybe Beaver Falls. ha,ha,ha.
    Have a fabulous Independence Day my friend. See ya.

  31. Loved the gag. That was great.

    Awww on the cats and kittens. So precious.

    I had no clue about the prep on fish. I'm going to try that.

    Loved the Koi and especially the music. That was a perfect blend.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺
