Mid-Week Beacon

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

Rescued Baby Crows Return Each Spring to Say "Hello"

These 'Resurrection Plants' Spring Back to Life in Seconds - Deep Look

Doris Day and Tony Bennett - I Left My Heart in San Francisco

Enya - Caribbean Blue - Beautiful Coral Reef

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.

When you wish good for others, good things come back to you.  This is the law of nature.


The miracle of gratitude is that it shifts your perception to such an extent that it changes the world you see. - Hobert Holden


Nothing ever happened in the past that can prevent you from being present now. - Eckhart Tolle


Don't point out other peoples' flaws, because you're not perfect;  you have to look in the mirror before you can look out the window.


I'm grateful for falling leaves, cozy fires, good friends and cute boots!


We cannot inspire others by trying to be perfect.  We can only inspire others by showing how compassionately we embrace our imperfections.


People with good intentions make promises.  But people with good character keep them!


Overthinking will destroy your mood.  Breathe and let it go.


Never, ever underestimate the importance of having fun.


Instead of wasting my energy on hate and resentment, I'd rather invest my energy in love and contentment.










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!

  1. Hi, Linda! I hope that you enjoyed Thanksgiving! We spent a long time enjoying a beautiful fall day in Beacon Hill Park. Your videos were awesome today. The crow one was fascinating, and the Caribbean Blue one reminded me of the few times I went scuba diving in my life. I really like the HeartMath quotes! Have a happy Wednesday, my dear Montreal friend!

  5. Thank you, Linda for the beautiful and interesting videos. The crows are taken care of like little babies. They opened their beaks wide to be fed.

  8. Hi Linda,
    I'm trying to make it a habit now. To visit your blog more often. Love the two postcards about 'overthinking' and 'having fun. Very true.

    And the song. Younger folks think there's only one famous hit about Frisco. About the "flowers in your hair." They forgot this one.

    Thanks for the read and evergreen.

  9. I love this quote - so true! "Don't point out other peoples' flaws, because you're not perfect; you have to look in the mirror before you can look out the window." Have a great Wednesday :-)

  16. 'Rescued Baby Crows...' -> how nice, Linda !

  17. Si me gustaron los vídeos de los cuervos, el despertar de la naturaleza en primavera y el de Enya.
    Gran verdad en eso de que antes de criticar defectos de otras personas miremos primero los nuestros.

    Saludos.

  18. Awww on the crow. That's such a heartwarming story. So adorable and so loving.

    Have a fabulous day Linda. ☺

  19. Linda, Love those baby crows...funny how they can imprint on people...and other animals too. Bright birds and always fun to watch. They like to roll down the grass in our front yard. Loved Doris Day when I was young...saw just about all of her movies. My favorite quote is "Overthinking will destroy your mood. Breathe and let it go! Amen!! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  20. I haven't even had a chance to read the rest of your collection because I'm all choked up from the crow story. XXXOO

  21. Wonderful crow story, and I loved the coral reef too.

    Happy mid-week wishes

    All the best Jan

  22. Another wonderful post. I enjoyed the quotes and especially the video about the crows! Thanks Linda :o) Hugs!

  23. WOW, the resurrection plants are amazing. I guess I have never heard of this before. Love the crow too and who doesn't like Doris Day? LOL! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  24. Hard to believe that a crow remembers like that. Fascinating. Doris Day and Tony Bennett - now that's music. I think Doris Day is still alive - in her 90s; not sure, though. Once is awhile I'd play Enya in my American History classroom when the students were working on a project. Kept them calmed down. Great posters again also and Raphael's kitties warm m heart!

  25. When you wish good for others, good things come back to you - I like this quote. Have a nice week! :)

  26. Hello Linda, I hope you are having a wonderful week. We are pretty much in full peak leaf change here in the foothills of the Appalachians and so beautiful. We had company this week and did lots of leaf-peeping. I bet it's pretty in your neck of the woods too.

  27. Lovely! Thank you Linda for another amazing post. I loved watching the videos on the crows and the coral reef and how I enjoyed hearing Doris Day and Tony Bennett singing that ageless song. Wise words are always welcomed. A good reminder indeed.

  28. Hello Linda,

    I love Enya :)

    Have a nice week!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yes! I often find those who are most critical of others, are not very happy with themselves. Happy hump day Linda! :-)

  30. Love, Love, Love my friend! The crow story captured my heart! I have to see if I can put that on my blog. Big Hugs!

  32. It's true that we should wish other people well. As another saying goes, what goes around comes around.

  36. Thank you Linda. You found another of my favourite singers in Tony Bennett. Must admit though, I was never a fan of Doris Day, more an Elizabeth Taylor guy.

  37. Thank you....have a lovely day!

  43. Hey Linda, thankyou for visiting my blog and leaving me some love.... this has been a gr8 experience, I really appreciate all the quotes that you shared its made my day thanx ...i am your new follower...

  44. Hello again Linda!:) I'm back, couldn't stay away for long!:) This time I was able to see all the videos, and have been here quite a while now. Crows are amazing birds, and I enjoyed both videos. It's fascinating that they leave tokens of their appreciation for either the food they are given, or some kind deed received. I loved seeing the coral reef, and listening to Tony Bennett and Doris Day. I'm a great fan of both, and have several T.Bennetts CDs. I liked the quote about good intentions, and good character, it's spot on. Thank you Linda for a most enjoyable time.:)

  45. Hi Linda, sorry it's been awhile.. I love the baby crows coming back to visit. They are such intelligent creatures! And I love Enya, listen to her music so much, I think I have almost everything she's ever done... And of course Tony Bennett and Doris Day, perfect! Have a great weekend dear Linda!
