I Love This Quote

This is one of my favorite quotes. Have you ever watched a child with a sheet of paper and a box of crayons? I could watch them for hours. Their young imaginations are without limitations. It is magical and different, as if…unlike grownups,  they Hear Colors and See Sound.

It is almost sad to me that….the next step is always the presentation of a coloring book where they are taught to “Stay Within The Lines.”

Astronomy Picture of the Day

ight Sky Reflections from the World’s Largest Mirror
Image Credit & Copyright: Jheison Huerta

Explanation: What’s being reflected in the world’s largest mirror? Stars, galaxies, and a planet. Many of these stars are confined to the grand arch that runs across the image, an arch that is the central plane of our home Milky Way Galaxy. Inside the arch is another galaxy — the neighboring Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Stars that are individually visible include Antares on the far left and Sirius on the far right. The planet Jupiter shines brightly just below Antares. The featured picture is composed of 15 vertical frames taken consecutively over ten minutes from the Uyuni Salt Flat in Bolivia. Uyuni Salt Flat (Salar de Uyuni) is the largest salt flat on Earth and is so large and so extraordinarily flat that, after a rain, it can become the world’s largest mirror — spanning 130 kilometers. This expansive mirror was captured in early April reflecting each of the galaxies, stars, and planet mentioned above.

Your  fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and  bull-strong.

Keep skunks and bankers at a  distance.

Life is simpler when you plow around the  stump.

A bumble bee is considerably faster than a  John Deere tractor.

Words that soak into your ears  are whispered…. not yelled.

Meanness don’t just  happen overnight.

Forgive your enemies; it messes  up their heads.

Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.

It don’t take a very big  person to carry a grudge.

You cannot unsay a cruel  word.

Every path has a few puddles.

When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.

The  best sermons are lived, not preached.

Don’t judge folks by their relatives.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best  answer.

Live a good and honorable life, then when  you get older and think back, you’ll enjoy it a second  time.

Don’t interfere with somethin’ that ain’t  bothering you none.

Timin’ has a lot to do with  the outcome of a rain dance.

If you find yourself  in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin’.

Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.

The biggest troublemaker you’ll probably ever have  to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin’.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

Good  judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from  bad judgment.

Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a  whole lot easier than puttin’ it back in.

If you  get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try  orderin’ somebody else’s dog around.

Don’t pick  a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he’ll  just kill  you.

Live simply,  love generously, care deeply.

Speak kindly, and leave  the rest to God.

Remember God loves you and have a peaceful day.
