  18. I like the pontoon boat, so easy to board.

  19. Loving your beach meditation picture -- soft always prevails! Wonderful. Everything is wonderful today (as usual). Even the top quote made me smile -- I would never have thought Eleanor Roosevelt and my Yoga teacher had anything in common, but she always tells us to love ourselves through our Yoga practice. Then we can better love others.)

  29. All happy. Especially the critters: the tough one seeking food, the spoiled one playing on the beach, the ducky wucky. Your etegami art is wonderful!

  30. You're right: Somewhere in this world of hard and jagged edges, there is always some softness. Happy haiku Friday!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love that good old "duckie" feeling. I wonder why and how that saying got started?

    ReplyDelete

  34. You have such pretty sunsets there on the cape. - I bet it would be fun to ride on the Pontoon boat. - Always sweet to see your little dog.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Your etegami is so cute this week. You have really mastered the technique. Mine is pretty puny, but the hiking boot from last week Buddy really wants framed....and that makes me feel good. All the water shots are so pretty. You live in a gorgeous part of the country though I bet your winters leave lots to be desired. Hope the water calms them down a bit. Hugs, genie
