The tally of hits on my blog has just gone over 4000. So a big thank you to all the people who pop in to read posts, who have clicked “follow”, who link from Facebook and Linkedin or via search engines.
I’m glad you are out there and give my blog your attention. It spurs me on to keep writing and taking photos.
Flowers are often given as thank you gifts so here is a photo, taken today, of my Aladdin patio rose, flowering abundantly for the second time this season. Enjoy and thank you!
A fellow blogger reminded me recently of the writing and wisdom of Robert Fulghum. I particularly like this quote taken from his work “All I ever really needed to know I learned in kindergarten”. I was really pleased to learn that he has written several books and I plan to track them down at my local public library.
Robert says: “Think of what a better world it would be if we all – the whole world – had cookies and milk about 3 o’clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankets for a nap. Or if we had a basic policy in our nations to always put things back where we found them and cleaned up our own messes. And it is still true, no matter how old you are, when you go out into the world, it is better to hold hands and stick together.”
The day will come when, after harnessing space, the winds, the tides, gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. On that day, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.
