...the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. Geo. Washington Feb. 22, 1732
Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert Kennedy, South Africa 1966.

BG got some good pictures this week.
Of course Todd wasn't too happy about having his picture taken but he warmed up. BG sat on the porch drinking coffee a couple of times and Todd forgot that he is supposed to be shy and he ran in and out. BG was smart and let the door propped open and he got excited.
BG was sneaky that way.
BG finally got out and picked up his monthly bouquet . It is a pretty flower and also has some that will open so there were more blooms soon. We like it when we have our flowers.
I like to sniff the floor and see the birdies around the bushes. BG took a picture of me in the bushes but it was of my bottom so I asked him not to share it.
And just some more. You can click to make them bigger (embiggen) and then see them in all their full glory. Then click again and you get a slideshow.
And my picture for Mr. DeMille. We like this one.

Don't be fooled by my beauty....
The light of my face comes from the candle of my spirit.
I believe that working only from the conscious limits one's creativity -- whereas transcending consciousness can enhance the inner life of a work of art.
"By having a reverence for life, we enter into a spiritual relation with the world. By practicing reverence for life we become good, deep, and alive."
Of this we may be sure:that thoughts winged with peace and love breathe a silent benediction over all the earth...

When did my wild oats turn to prunes and Bran Flakes?
