Memories Are Made Of This

found along the way
half of this year 
is in the past
enjoy each day

As soon as you start to pursue a dream,
your life wakes up and everything has meaning.

integrity is not what we do
so much as who we are
and who we are
determines what we do

 . . . and by the way,
everything in life is writable about
if you have the outgoing guts to do it,
and the imagination to improvise.
the worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt

"Stuff your eyes with wonder,
live as if you'd drop dead in ten seconds.
See the world.
It's more fantastic than any
dream made or paid for in factories.
Ask no guarantees,
ask for no security,
there never was such an animal.”
Ray Bradbury
I saw this quote
on one of your blogs
remind me please
so I can give credit

'We're loved infinitely for however little bit of time we have.
It's not ultimately tragic to die at any age.
Whether we're talking about being blown away into little pieces
or what is ultimately tragedy,
I just think there isn't ultimate tragedy except for evil,
and God doesn't will any evil.
And we're surrounded by the
Good Shepherd,
the vine and the branches.
Whether we feel it or not, we are surrounded
by this tremendously loving presence,
and that covers every second of every day.
Of everybody!"

A dog doesn't care if you're rich or poor,
big or small, young or old.
He doesn't care if you're not smart,
not popular, not a good joke-teller,
not the best athlete, nor the best-looking person.
To your dog, you are the greatest, the smartest,
the nicest human being who was ever born.
You are his friend and protector."

Snickers shared her bike basket with neighbor "friend dog" Gizmo
 Giz now has his own brand new basket
Snickers the trend setter!

Hope you're enjoying your blog vacation, Lynne. It's so hot here that today I've done almost next to nothing and not enough energy to feel guilty about it! -LOL-
