  8. I was just reading a blog post about some quilts that were made about grief. Then I read your haiku. It was fitting. Your little doggie buddah and the Muse in the first picture look a lot alike. Cute.

  33. Hello Carol and Artmuse Dog, another wonderful week of photos. That little boat is so cute. It reminds me of a tugboat, which then has me thinking of the cartoon of MIckey Mouse whistling at the wheel of one. :-)

  48. Hello,

    The quote made me thinking. It is true wealth will give the ability to fully experience life. But on second thoughts, I think whether one has wealth or not a person will fully experience life. A person with wealth can get many things which a poor man cannot get. But a poor man also experiences many things which a wealthy man may not experience. Small things brings great happiness in a poor man's life but even fantastic, magnificent, expensive things many not make a rich man happy. Well, this quote can be a subject of great discussion.

    Your photos are wonderful. I loved the first photo very much. You dog is so cute.

    Your haiku is thought provoking. When we are amid natural beauty we become one with nature. This is probably the reason why Henry David Thoreau went to live in Waldon Pond.

    Best wishes

  52. Art Muse Dog has funny expressions. The little boat almost looks like a toy, especially compared to the schooner. It sounds lovely with all this heat to be out in a sail boat.
