Seed for thought

my community

Met a happy squirrel on my walk today. No, he did not come out and say it, but from the way he enjoyed his cone - and totally ignored me - it was plain to see...

Made me stop and think: how much do we need to make us happy?

Hope your day is going well and your pine cone is full of seeds ;-)

To answer your question: To see and read your today's post is sufficent to me! Hope it will last and that there is something as nice and positive on the next blog I will now visit!

Imagine if you were a pine tree, and after reading this post you just found out what happened to you before you were born.

It doesn't take much for me - day to day, hour to hour contentment. However it doesn't take much to piss me off either...

Nice photograph and neat commentary.

I hope you get to see what we did in Japan in 1953. Sendai-shi

Thanks Isabella and same to you!

I guess that I'm just a capitalist pig; it takes more than a pine cone to make me happy.

I love watching squirrels. Like many birds, they're cute, but oh so serious all the time.

Felicia said...

Me too, I need more than a pine cone. An ice cream cone for starters would be nice! :)

Great Isabella!, I saw a squirrel on the road, while I was driving ( NOH I did NOT drive over him!) but they are very rare ( many of them)in this area where I live, they are too quick gone to feed them , otherwise I would!

Lessie said...

Thank you! What an original blessing. I'll need to use it! "May your pinecone be full of seeds." :)

Moi said...

Not much....all i need is benevolent weather fairies and the toughest of days transform into a lovely one :)

GMG said...

Like Moi said, not much! Today, at the end of a busy week, your post was just enough...
Have a great weekend!

Right, we don't need much. A fig just about to burst into bud, a glimpse of a wild creature.

Excellent thought! Every time I get stressed out over something, I tell myself things will be okay.

If only we had universal health insurance in this country! Then I won't have to worry about working to have health coverage. I can be a bump or maybe a street performer or an artist. The only reason I'm working is for the health insurance.

I agree, to see something like this would make me very happy too.
