Haiku Friday #100 - Sky Watch #23


Milestone & Motivator
"It is one of the most beautiful
compensations in life ... that no man
can sincerely try to help another
without helping himself."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Milestone today
one hundred Haiku posts shared
in 2008 ...

Half are here and the
rest are at Small Reflections
with a few for good

measure at my new
Happily Retired Gal ...
All Haiku-Sky Watch!

I created this
Sky collage to put on my
Christmas card this year

illustrating the
varied views we see in my
So Cal neighborhood.

"Life can be complicated, but happiness is pretty simple."
from Simple Secrets

One more gift to share
I hope you will take the time
to view this brief clip

from Mac Anderson
found in Simple Truths email
early this morning

guaranteed to put
a smile upon your face
as it does on mine.

I love your collages, too. The skies are beautiful.

"...the will to try it and the faith to believe it's possible" is how I feel about happiness in the new year.

Thank you for the ruminations!

Raven said...

Beautiful collage of skies. I had planned to do Skywatch this week but since I had no internet connection for two days guess my skies will have to wait. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

By the way, thank you for the award... I have a very difficult time dealing with those things... even acknowledging them. It's very rude of me and I apologize.
