Imagine, What’s on the other side of the shadows?

Quotes and Notes #204, June 1

“I look out the window sometimes to seek the color of the shadows and the different greens in the trees, but when I get ready to paint I just close my eyes and imagine a scene.”—Grandma Moses—

Sometimes the view in our imagination is more vivid than what we see out the window. Sometimes we must realize that the darkness of a shadow is regulated by the brightness of the surrounding light.

Imagine. You can be where you want to be and do as you wish.
And don’t forget to share a smile
Everything is going to be all right
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”

Can You Trust a Tree?

Quotes and Notes #155, April 8

“You can’t be suspicious of a tree, or accuse a bird or a squirrel of subversion or challenge the ideology of a violet.”–Hal Borland–

When you tire of the trials and tribulations of life all around you, take a moment and look at the sky. Go outside and hug a tree, listen to a bird, or appreciate the fact that anymore, people seldom use squirrels in Brunswick Stew.

Enjoy the flowers and the green leaves. Appreciate the fact that on the other side of the equator the water goes down the drain in a different direction. If you are shut up in a windowless room, close your eyes for a moment and imagine all of the peacefulness of nature.

Go out and share a smile.

Everything is going to be all right
