There Are No Guarantees....



There are no guarantees.

From the viewpoint of fear, none are strong enough.

From the viewpoint of love, none are necessary.

That picture makes me wish it'd hurry up & get warm enough to lie outside & watch the clouds go by.

When I was a kid, I loved to find a nice quiet spot & lie there for hours, mentally riding the clouds to wherever they were going. My mom would call & call for me & I always thought, "Crazy woman! Does she really think I can hear her from all the way up here?" LOL

Very cool story, Rose. :) Isn't it funny how we think as kids?? Makes me wonder what is going through my kids' minds sometimes when they look at me like I'm crazy. haha

For some reason, I've always had a great love for clouds (betcha couldn't tell by all of the cloud photos LOL). I still like lying in the grass and watching the big white fluffy clouds roll by, too. :) It's sooo fun to pick out shapes and see all of the different ones that go floating across the sky. (When you're not thinking about being up there ON the clouds. LOL)

Hello there, Joe! I'm glad you stopped by to say hi. :) I had been wondering about ya'. Hope all is well with you. Hope ya' have a smile on your face, too. If not, I'll be forced to come up with some other goofy animation...and I just don't know if I could top that stick figure imitation. LOL (Which reminds me of something....I never did get around to coloring a picture with crayons and posting it. haha I'll have to do that soon. :P)

(By the way, I liked Rose's comment too.)

Hey, ILP!! You snuck in on me. LOL I can see the lil' boy and the ice cream!! :D What I first saw was a sad girl (over in the right hand corner) and her "aura" or a dream kinda' setting surrounding her.

Have some ice cream for me too while you're at it!! I'm fresh outta' that too. Dang, I need to go grocery shopping. LOL

*hugs to you too*

Hey! I had ice cream today! With blueberry pie & bread pudding & fried chicken & ... ugh. LOL

Am I the only one who sees Abe Lincoln in that picture? Or maybe Jay Leno. Hmm.

Last summer, I was lounging on the beach, staring up the sky, watching the clouds & somehow my imagination went haywire on me & the blue sky became water & the clouds became soap bubbles & I became quite queasy as the world turned upside down. LOL

SmileyTD said...

When you were lying on the beach and everything went all topsy-turvy on you, what kind of drink did you have in your hand?? hahaha

Now that you mention it, I can see Honest Abe on the left in the pic...wearing a tophat...and he has a really long beard. Guess that could also be Jay and his big ol' chin. LOL

Can you see the three people swimming??

Rose said...

LOL Plain ol' fruit juice. With a cute little umbrella in it. That's my story & I'm stickin' to it. BAHAHAHAHA

Can you see the shark up in the left corner, with his mouth wide open, ready to eat you?? Or maybe he's after the 3 swimmers I just can't find. LOL

SmileyTD said...

Suuuuuuuure it was plain ol' juice. That must have been the same kind of juice that they gave me at the bar a couple of weekends ago. hahaha :P

I can see the shark too!! He's actually in the same part of the clouds as two of the swimmers I mentioned. hehe
