There's a bird on this tree

There's a bird on this tree

time for a cup of tea

time for a cup of tea

♫♫ I Stop And I Breathe ♫♫

Stop! And Breathe!

a poem by Joyce Rupp

In the hurry.

In the rush,

Simple things missed,

Blessings denied

Beauties ignored.

In the calm,

In the quiet,

Simple things received,

Mystery unfolds,

Happiness blooms.

In the peace,

In the harmony,

I taste with love

All that is good.

Sometimes I just get lost in your images. I forget to praise your good work as Im just absorbed in the world of your lens!

Love everything from Elton John.
The poem has such wisdom and a lovely match for the quiet peaceful scenes...

Le t me know if you need me to come "bail you out of jail".....smile
My pleasure, Amigo! Happy weekend to You too!
ps....my participation, here on PB, will be very spotty, at best, from now through September, due to long a road trip, with little or no computer time.... I'll chime in, when I can....
Cheers!

All is indeed very good!.

That old man had the right idea. Having teeth is not all that it's meant to be, especially with the cost of dentists 😃 Btw I did see the bird way before you pointed him out, not as obscure as you thought he would be. Beautiful view to look at while sipping tea.

Police controlls are frequent in countries like that. Did they checked you guys or only the driver? Most of the time they can not read our passports. Can create funny situations

We were stopped many times during the trip. They only checked the driver. The police were very friendly in all occasions.
