The Only Thing

A  L  O  H   A !
"The worst bullies 
you will ever 
encounter in your life
are your own thoughts."
          Bryant H. McGill

“If you look the right way, 
you can see that the 
whole world is a garden.” 
        Frances Hodgson Burnett


Dissolves fear.

A smile
Thins the veil
Between Heaven & Earth,
Between souls.

Be good to others.
especially those who
are the most challenging
to you personally.
You may have to
absent yourself,
but while present
act only in love
as we all deserve.
Love, not correction
is the only thing that 
heals and corrects.
Thank YOU
             Warmly, cloudia

"Who else has seen 
the unclimbed peaks?
The rainbow's secret?
The real reason birds sing?

- Because I Fly,
I envy no man on earth."
     Grover C. Norwood

"Four wheels move the body. 
Two wheels move the soul. "

98 early aircraft world records 
were set with BMW engines!
"- the cornerstone of BMW
 was the aeroplane or, 
better said, the early 
flying machine."

you will walk the Earth with 
you eyes turned skywards, for 
there you have been and 
there you will long to return."

"If you look for the truth 
outside yourself, 
It gets farther 
and farther away. 
Today walking alone, 
I meet it everywhere I step. 
It is the same as me, 
yet I am not it.

Follow That Gull!

"For me, childhood roaming 
was what developed self-reliance, 
a sense of direction and 
adventure, imagination, a 
will to explore,

- to be able to get lost 
a little lost, then figure 
your way back."
           Rebecca Solnit 

" Kind words not only 
lift our spirits
in the moment 
they are given, 
but they can 
linger with us 
over the years. "
                                Joseph B. Wirthlin

I publicly denounce racism, 
bigotry, antisemitism, 
nazis, alt-right (or whatever

Fascism in WWII

"It is how people respond 
to stress that determines 
whether they will profit from 
misfortune or be miserable."
            Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

“Just because you don't say much 
doesn't mean people don't notice you.
 It's actually the quiet ones who often
 draw the most attention. There's this 
constant whirlwind of motion and 
sound all around, and then there's the 
quiet one, the eye of the storm.” 
             Amy Efaw

“Abandon the urge to 
simplify everything, to 
look for formulas and 
easy answers. Begin to 
think multidimensionally, 
to glory in the mystery and 
paradoxes of life, not to be 
dismayed by the multitude 
of causes and consequences 
that are inherent in each 
experience -- to appreciate 
the fact that life is complex.”

 Listening and caring 

are more important 

than being right.

Reflecting on simple 

things in life,

 teaches more 

than seminars.

Reality is kinder than 

the stories we 

sometimes tell.

Noticing and gratitude 

for small things

really does makes life

            Jean Paul Richter

“You can con God and 
get away with it, 
Granny said, if you 
do so with charm 
and wit. If you live your life
 with imagination and verve, 
God will play along just 
to see what outrageously 
entertaining thing you'll do next.” 
                Dean Koontz

When you educate yourself, 
you have lots of material, 
lots of ideas, lots 
of inspiration to draw on. 
You can use words and 
symbols that carry 
shared meaning.
 Use them well.
