#SoftTuesday . . . .If you smile at me





If you smile at me 
I will understand
cause that is something
everybody everywhere does
in the same language.

Joy is the wild card of life





“Joy is the wild card of life; it supersedes every other formula for success.
If you can find a way to create joy, you can rise beyond all external factors.
If you can play at whatever you are doing, you are the master of your life.”

~~Alan Cohen

#FridayFantasy . . . .the pleasure of knocking off wild apples.

“To appreciate the wild and sharp flavors of these October fruits,
it is necessary that you be breathing the sharp October or November air.
What is sour in the house a bracing walk makes sweet. Some of these apples
might be labeled, “To be eaten in the wind.” It takes a savage or wild taste
to appreciate a wild fruit. . . The era of the Wild Apple will soon be past….
I fear that he who walks over these fields a century hence will not know the
pleasure of knocking off wild apples. Ah, poor soul, there are many pleasures
which you will not know! . . . the end of it all will be that we shall be
compelled to look for our apples in a barrel.”

Henry David Thoreau

A Joy shared is a Joy Multiplied!

Especially when it comes from innocent Lips!
From hearts clean, clear and simple!
From minds seeking neither reward nor praise!
And shared with smiles true and sincere!

Sharing from the depth of their being!
From the love in their bosom!
From the abundance of their hearts!
A treasure more valuable than silver and gold!

“All who joy would win must share it. Happiness was born a twin”
Lord Bryon

“To get the full value of a joy you must have someone to divide it with”
“The best way to cheer your self is to try to cheer somebody else up”
Mark Twain
