a small bouquet of nasturtiums & cosmos - still blooming here at 29 Black Street

People tend to think of happiness as a stroke of luck, something that will descend like fine weather if you’re fortunate. But happiness is the result of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly. - Elizabeth Gilbert

I'm keepin' on, keepin' on participating relentlessly in my own happiness ;-) 

& in case you missed the link in yesterday's comments, stories like this one of a rescued Hong Kong alley rat named Mr. T contribute immensely to my own personal happiness efforts

Happy weekend ! 


  1. Awwww c'mon. Those must be mid-summer photos ... nuffin' bloomin' in MY garden.

  2. Wonderful photos, as always! And Mr. T's story was so touching! I loved it very much! So glad for the sharing.
