Sigh


I arise in the morning torn between the desire to improve the world
 and a desire to enjoy the world.
  This makes it hard to plan the day.

See!! This is what I was talking about the other day. An exquisite photograph with just the right, eloquent saying or caption or quotation to go with it.

What a beautiful scene.

The trick to that "plan the day" stuff is to not even THINK about planning the day. POOF. No more problem. BWAHAHAHA!

Right now, though, IF I had a plan, it would be to find a way to get myself to Newport, Rhode Island. Whereupon I would somehow slip unnoticed into The New York Yacht Club, attach my tush to a bench, and soak in the beauty.

Thanks for sharing...

beautiful garden and pond... were there fish in it? many people wont put fish in their plant gardens (cause the fish love to eat the plants )I personally would not be happy with out both... that looks like a pool that has been filled in and I am not positive fish could live in it there is something in concrete that is harmful to them.
very lovely garden and pond.... ME LIKEY!
Hugs laura

I think if you enjoy the world, you're pretty much changing it anyways.

Beautiful picture and beautiful words. What a great way to start, because I saw it this morning, and end, because I am back again, my day!

Mama, Eric at Paris Daily Photo had a shot of Mona Lisa, but "Louis" doesn't have to go to Paris to see her!

You ALWAYS have the best pictures and find the most awesome sayings..
were you an English Lit teacher? Where do you come up with some wonderful things? Do you spend a lot of time on the computer, do you read like ALL the time? Or do you just remember everything from school? Either way, you are one remarkable person that I truly enjoy reading her blog. Tomorrow dawns a new day. What will you post then? Good night!
