Ice Breaker

Happiness is not ready-made, it comes from your own actions.

– Dalai Lama

I met this little boy today his name is Malik.  He was a little shy with me at first so I decided to break the ice with my new bubble machine.  What kid or adult  does not like bubbles?  Needless to say it worked, he was no longer shy with me and had a blast chasing down the bubbles.

A Camera Imitates

While checking out pictures on Instagram I came across this quote on simplescenesimagery page:


Focus on what’s important

Capture the good times

Develop from the negatives

And if things don’t work out

Take another shot!

I thought this was a perfect way to see things.  Sometimes when we break things down they make more seems.

A seedling has bloomed

“The biggest adventure one can take is to live the life of your dreams. “

My Balcony Oasis had a new bloom. I planted a mix bag if seeds and this is the second flower of that package.  The first one was my “Dr. Seuss Hat”.

I threw away the package so I have no clue what is.  Does any one know what it is called?
