Fire People


Fire people, ghosts, spirits or just a strange formation in the fire?  Never know but makes one wonder… They appear to be children.  Well at least they are holding hands.  What do you think?


This is Your Life!

I think this is terrific!  In fact, I have a printed copy on my wall.  It’s from a company called Holstee.  We should all try to practice this more.  This is not Grand Theft Auto.  It’s your life!

From the website:

“Originally written as a reminder of the aspects of life they truly valued, Holstee’s founders, Dave, Mike and Fabian, never imagined that their personal goals could reach and resonate with so many others. As people around the globe shared the Manifesto, they were thrilled and humbled to find a community of those who aspired to the same hopes of finding true passion and living life to the fullest.”

So, take a read, watch the video, and if inspired to do so click the link to buy a print.  I just copied the link and am in no way compensated but wanted to share…

“This is your life. Do what you want and do it often. 
If you don’t like something, change it. 
If you don’t like your job, quit.
If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV.
If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love.
Stop over-analysing, life is simple.
All emotions are beautiful.
When you eat, appreciate every last bite.
Life is simple.
Open your heart, mind and arms to new things and people, we are united in our differences.
Ask the next person you see what their passion is and share your inspiring dream with them.
Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself.
Some opportunities only come once, seize them.
Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them, so go out and start creating.
Life is short, live your dream and wear your passion.”

― Holstee Manifesto

My fellow bloggers!

This blog has been running for over a year this past April.  There have been many people who come and go or just visit for a while and then disappear.  I would like to pay tribute to some of those who have been with me since the early days and who have stayed active “liking” my posts through that time.  I am also thankful for those who post comments often.  They are:

In addition to mentioning them here, I am adding a Page on my blog linking to those who are old friends, most active likes or comments.  Please feel free to add me to your list if you keep one.  Keep it up and thank you!

If we are new friends and you want to have a link to my blog on yours, let me know you did so and I will do the same.  Thanks!

Here today, gone tomorrow…

It was just days ago that I posted the pictures of the baby Robins in the nest.  They grew up so fast…and now they’re gone.  It reminds me of how precious time is and how we need to stop and smell the roses more often.  Enjoy the little things in life.

Baby Robins


Nature can be so beautiful but it all changes so quickly.  The same goes for our lives and  children who grow up so fast.  Stop and watch the children play.  Don’t be in such a rush all the time.  Everything is not so important that you can’t indulge the little ones once in a while.  You will be surprised how much you gain from giving them so little.
