XLVI Quote, Images ‘n’ Clip of the Day

“The obscure we see eventually. The completely obvious, it seems, takes longer.”  -Edward R. Murrow

Were this true, it certainly explains a heck of a lot. Could really do with a to-the-letter instruction booklet about now.

You Wakefield Brit bunch must pardon my Francophiling. And I’m not talkin’ James. Consider this little munchkin dream:

Impromptu story teller- check
Monkeys- check
Hippos- check
Trees- check
Strawberries (!)- check
Flowers- check
And the witch gets it in the end- checkity-check

When she leans in close to the camera with those big, big browns? Le melt!

Walk … I flippin’ sing! A charming way to state the whole glass half full versus empty outlook as well as state the importance of employing a sense of deliberate intention to all that you do, even when faced with less than desirable circumstances. Find me a puddle.

Reminds me of the role perspective plays in the trials to be faced from day to day.

“We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.” -Dr. Loretta Scott

Seen or unseen, suffering happens every moment of every day all over the world.
For some, it’s a singular catalyzing event, for others an ongoing struggle.
This, I know.

Even so, my heart aches when presented with yet another devastation.
Currently, the Haitian people.
Longing to give more than just an offer of money and prayer in such matters.
My time, my actions, send me there, bring them here, whichever, one at a time.

Then two, then three …

Woman Laying In Fall Leaves

Matthew Gray Gubler

A deafening roar to drown out all that needs drowning and out.

XLII Quote, Images ‘n’ Clip of the Day

“Mirabelle Buttersfield moves from Vermont hoping to begin her life. And now she is stranded in the vast openness of L.A. She keeps working to make connections, but the pile of near misses is starting to overwhelm her. What Mirabelle needs is an omniscient voice to illuminate and spotlight her and to inform everyone that this one has value, this one standing behind the counter in the glove department and to find her counterpart and bring him to her.” -Shop Girl

… connection … near misses … needs … illuminate … value … this one … counterpart …
