..might as well jump,
said the cat to no one in particular 
so she jumped, photobombed
and the picture was spectacular!

A dream within a dream…

“Take this kiss upon the brow!
And in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night or in a day,
In a vision or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.” ~ Edgar Allan Poe


“..though the moon declines to tipple,
she dances in yon shining ripple.
And when I sing, my festive song,
the echoes of the moon prolong.

Say, when shall we next meet together?
Surely not in cloudy weather.
For you my boon companions dear,
come only when the sky is clear.” 
~ Li Bai, The Works of Li Po

The kiss is immortal…

“The kiss itself is immortal. It travels from lip to lip, century to century, from age to age. Men and women garner these kisses, offer them to others and then die in turn.” ~ Guy de Maupassant


“Wanderers eastward, wanderers west, 
know you why you cannot rest?
‘Tis that every mother’s son
Travails with a skeleton.

Lie down in the bed of dust;
Bear the fruit that bear you must;
Bring the eternal seed to light,
And morn is all the same as night.” ~ A.E. Housman, A Shropshire Lad


“Joyful morning, good morning, good day.” ~ Lailah Gifty Akita 

“I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I’m awake, you know?” ~ Ernest Hemingway
