looking onward

"When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on." ~Franklin D. Roosevelt


Prosperity is just around the corner, dear Leo, if it is not here already. All your efforts are about to pay off, and pay off in a big way. It may be that a big proposal gets accepted at work, or perhaps a manuscript that you've penned lands you a publisher. Your innate talent and good fortune combine to bring wonderful things your way. Enjoy this welcome change of events!

two tree heart

green limerick

There was a young lady named Kitty
Whose limerick came out so pretty
All the gents dressed in green
Were unusually keen
To admire her outstanding ditty.

Tangerines and oranges are frequently displayed in homes and stores throughout the Chinese New Year celebration. Tangerines are symbolic of good luck, and oranges are symbolic of wealth. These symbols have developed through a language pun, the word for tangerine having the same sound as "luck" in Chinese, and the word for orange having the same sound as "wealth". It is said that keeping the leaves on the branches symbolizes the connection to family & loved ones.

on Prometheus~ the patron of human civilization

This book has become my page turning project as of late... I am beyond intrigued.
At nearly 600 pages and 25 years in the making, this is a most brilliant piece of non~fiction-
and a Pulitzer prize winning biography that is keeping me up tonight.

to quote Lewis Carroll

"One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. Which road do I take? she asked. Where do you want to go? was his response. I don't know, Alice answered. Then, said the cat, it doesn't matter."

"If you bring forth what is within you,

what you bring forth will save you.

If you do not bring forth what is within you,

what you do not bring forth will destroy you."

heart sunset

this pic was sent to me from a sweetheart-
Heart-Shaped Sunset:
The World's Biggest Valentine
I happened to get this picture of a heart shaped sunset by chance on Nov 11, 2006. I saw the sunset colour from my living room window and went to the end of my driveway to take a pic. It was taken with ISO 800 film and I have the negative to show it was not altered other than to crop off some of the black at the bottom to center it up. It was not until I got the prints back that I realised I had a heart. A combination of the trees on either side of the street and some chance clouds at the top gave it the heart shape. I have been saving it for Valentine's Day so that the listeners in Port Perry, Ontario; the small Canadian town with a big heart, could wish a Happy Valentine's day to all the Coast to Coast listeners. Thanks All.
