On a serious note

enough cute..feeling contemplative today so will share some quotes.
Cute will be back!

“To live is so startling, it leaves but little room for other occupations.”
– Emily Dickinson, letter

“If someone wants you in their life, they’ll make room for you. You shouldn’t have to fight for a spot. Never, ever insist yourself to someone who continuously overlooks your worth.”

I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness. I hear the ever-approaching thunder, which will destroy us too. I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right. In the meantime, I must uphold my ideals, for perhaps the time will come when I shall be able to carry them out.

someone loves frogs..

and now for the snails…

She was a plump little English snail,
He was of French extraction.
The channel rolled between them,
But he loved her to distraction.
He asked her through the telephone
In tones of deep emotion.
If she would brave the seas for him
And cross the stormy ocean.
“No thank you,sir,”she coyly said,
“I love you but no matter,
I could not feel at home in France
Where snails are fried in batter.”

In a line, join the queue

I have just posted more owl images to my ‘owl’ post on April 16.
Do you hate queues..like these dogs…lines can be happy too. When I was teaching we took our class for walks in line, in pairs if there was room.
More recently, there are human buses, think they have a better name than that, but children join a line to go to school, holding a rope, chaperoned by an adult.
I have not seen such a line, but applaud the idea of children being able to safely walk to school and get exercise.

families join hands and walk or run along the beach.
Lets not forget the lines we had to do after school, usually starting with I must not…..
Did you all use rulers to make all the I’s together down the page.
Wonder how much time it saved? Is the modern version cut and paste?
