Sometimes it is easy being green!

Grasshopper Posing!

He sat there posing so nicely, I couldn’t resist. This is a photograph taken this summer. I stepped outside and there he was …ready for his close-up, so I obliged.

And then I was reminded of this scene from a television show. Master ‘Po’ is teaching a student ‘Caine’, in a monastery, a lesson:

Master Po: Close your eyes. What do you hear?
Young Caine: I hear the water, I hear the birds.
Po: Do you hear your own heartbeat?
Caine: No.
Po: Do you hear the grasshopper which is at your feet?
Caine: Old man, how is it that you hear these things?
Po: Young man, how is it that you do not?

I wonder what we miss because we aren’t really listening? Don’t you?

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Who is your Angel…in this life of yours?

There is a Special Someone out there for everyone. A Mother, a Father, a Grandparent, a Sister, a Brother, an Aunt, an Uncle, a Friend, a Lover, A husband, A Wife, a Confidant. Someone who is always there for you. Who knows what to say and when to say it with a word, a look, a hug. Right now, stop what you are doing and say to this person … I love you!

I take my job of inspiring very seriously.

So to get the work week going, I thought I’d post this picture to get perspectives in the right place.

No don’t thank me! No problem really.

And here’s even more motivation, okay not so much motivation as advance preparation:

Oh no wait, with daylight savings time it would look more like this wouldn’t it:

And there you go, my job is finished! No prob. glad to make that extra little difference!

To start you on your way!

Just having some fun – seriously have a good week, try not to work too hard, or too late! Remember to be good to you!
