Today I like....

Calligraphy-  The word Calligraphy literally means beautiful writing. Before the invention of the printing press some 500 years ago, it was the way books were made. Today, there are three main types or styles of calligraphy: (1) Western or Roman, (2) Arabic, and (3) Chinese or Oriental. It is mostly in the form of elegant hand writing. It is an art form in itself. It allows you to juxtapose creativity with attention to detail in order to create something beautiful and exact.

Some nice blue things from my life....

As Albert Einstein said
Imagination is sometimes more important than knowledge. For while knowledge defines all we currently know and understand, imagination points to all we might yet discover and create. 

So don’t wish your life away, cherish every moment of it. Spend time with loved ones, laugh, cry and above all remember you only live once!
Imagination disposes of everything; it creates beauty, justice, and happiness, which are everything in this world ~Blaise Pascal
You see things; and you say, "Why?" But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?" ~George Bernard Shaw
Reality leaves a lot to the imagination ~ John Lennon

Where there is Love

Where there is love the heart is light,
Where there is love the day is bright,
Where there is love there is a song
To help when things are going wrong,
Where there is love there is a smile
To make all things seem more worthwhile,
Where there is love there’s quiet peace,
A tranquil place where turmoils cease….
Love changes darkness into light
And makes the heart take “wingless flight”-
Oh, blest are they who walk in love…..
They also walk with God above,
And when man walks with God again
There shall be Peace on Earth for men.
