Keep Calm and Love Flamingos

                        https://joan-reese.pixels.com/featured/pretty-pink-flamingos-joan-reese.html
A flock of flirting flamingos is pure, passionate, pink pandemonium-a frenetic flamingle-mangle-a discordant discotheque of delirious dancing, flamboyant feathers, and flamingo lingo.

Lady Liberty on Broadway

https://joan-reese.pixels.com/featured/lady-liberty-on-42nd-street-joan-reese.html?newartwork=true
Nearly all Americans have ancestors who braved the oceans-liberty-loving risk takers in search of an ideal-the largest voluntary migrations in recorded history. Across the Pacific, across the Atlantic, they came from every point on the compass-many passing beneath the Statue of Liberty-with fear and vision, with sorrow and adventure, fleeing tyranny or terror, seeking haven, and all seeking hope...Immigration is not just a link to America's past; it's also a bridge to America's future.                                George H. W. Bush

I don't like looking back. I'm always constantly looking forward. I'm not the one to sort of sit and cry over spilt milk. I'm too busy looking for the next cow.

It’s the Unknown that Draws People

https://joan-reese.pixels.com/featured/invisable-lady-joan-reese.html?newartwork=true

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”

Seas the Day

Come walk with me, take off your shoes, let's walk the beach with only the moon to light the path and waves to hear you tell me you love me. Why does the ocean rock the moon to sleep every night? So the sun will wake and kiss the beach

I want to go and go, and then drop dead in the middle of something I'm loving to do. 
And if that doesn't happen, if I wind up sitting in a wheelchair, at least I'll have my high heels on.               Dolly Parton

On Memorial Day, I don't want to only remember the combatants. There were also those who came out of the trenches as writers and poets, who started preaching peace, men and women who have made this world a kinder place to live.                    Eric Burdon

Fields are more Sacred than Sanctuaries

      As a spiritual person, nature for me has always been a healing place. Going back all the way to my childhood on the farm, the fields and forests were places of adventure and self-discovery. Animals were companions and friends, and the world moved at a slower, more rational pace than the bustling cities where I'd resided my adult life.                        David Mixner
