The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.

Connie and Rob said...

I love that...and so true. That is what I long for each day. Someday I will get there!

I think that photo is proof of the long-necked lochness monster. Ok, there's no head... the headless lochness monster.

Neo said...

Meow - I think I lost my keys in the water!

Looking at the photo makes me imagine myself sitting on one of those tree trunks, smoking my cigarette, gazing at the blue sky and feeling the quiet and peacefulness around me.......
Here's my quote to go with yours...
Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for; it is a thing to be achieved.

Did you take that picture? Hey I liked your tag list. I love reading tags.

Cool picture and GREAT quote. So true.

Lovely, very well said. Though I guess it takes many people really long to get under that roof. I am so far away now, but hey I have figured out at least what I hope for

cheers

Lisa .... yay, you are first. I thought the quote was wonderful. I get quotes sent to me daily via some website I signed up for. Usually they are crap ... this one was beautiful.

Connie ... I think most of us will get there some day. Hopefully, some of us are already there.

Jenn ... I never really noticed that stick in the middle, but you are right ... it does sort of look like a headless lochness monster :-)

Neo ... maybe Jenn's Loch Ness monster will find your keys :-)

Friday's Child ... your quote is great, too.

Phil ... yes, I did take that photo. It is on the Murray River (which borders Victoria and New South Wales) last June, when we were camping (in the middle of winter ... it sure was cold, but beautiful none-the-less). Glad you enjoyed the tag. They are fun to do, and fun to read.

Momyblogr ... thank you. I thought it fit in with many people's lives at the moment.

True Blue Guy ... hope you can find your way back.

Thanks everyone, have a great weekend, take care, Meow

I love the quote! Barbara Kingsolver is a wonderful writer! I wish I had talent like hers.

Great picture. Is that some sort of sea monster sticking it's head out of the water?

Sar said...

Hi Meow! Thanks so much for your sweet comments on my site. You have a neat site here too. I love the button "Insanity Is Hereditary You Get It From Your Kids". My mom had an apron with that embroidered on it when we were kids and now a mommy myself I can really appreciate it.

I'll be back here again too. Have a great weekend groovy kitty! :)

Meow said...

DaybyDay ... you are most welcome.

Randi ... I have never actually come across any of her writing before - guess I'll have to "Google" her !!

Angel ... no, just a big stick !! I never really noticed it, until a few of you mentioned it. Guess I should pay more attention to my photos !!

Sar ... you are most welcome. Your site is great. Glad you came to visit mine.

Take care, everyone, and enjoy the remainder of your weekend.

Meow xx

Hi Meow,
Thank you so much for the "TAG" dont laugh but once I found out what it was, I was thinking How sweet of her, Anyone else reading this will think what? she didnt know???? but I havent been on the comp/ blog scene long. But it is a comfort to know there are warm and friendly helpful people like you on here, it is great to know I can bounce back and forth and not be mocked by my silly questions.:) I completed the TAG and I guess you've been tagged prior , Is it ok to tag someone who hasnt been to my blog or maybe a blogger I have read via through your blog????or is that like ........pirate- ing
Thank s for the help
GEG :)

I love this, and by coincidence, I am currently reading "Prodigal Summer".

Thank you so much for the compliments about my jewelry. Business isn't going so swell. It is hard to get my name out there. SOmeday I'm hoping that I get discovered and the items swarm out the door. Until then I will just keep making it for the enjoyment of it.

Michelle said...

Have a great weekend :)

Meow said...

GEG ... you are sweet. In answer to your question, I have posted it on your blog !!

Cathy ... is it a good book ?? I had never heard of Barbara Kingsolver before, until I googled her. Her books look wonderful.

DaybyDay ... sorry to hear business isn't going too well. I'm sure it will pick up .. your jewellery is stunning.

Michelle ... thank you.

Have a great "remainder of the weekend", and take care ... Meow

ange said...

Viamarie said...

Nice shot. How nice to just sit down and meditate on a few things.

Happy weekend!

Meow said...

Gosh, naughty Blogger has been misbehaving tonight ....

Ange ... thank you, I thought it was appropriate !!

Viamarie ... is that a new picture on your comment ?? Thanks, it does look like a great place to relax, doesn't it ?

Have a great weekend, or remainder there-of.
