Lively Living….Briefly

Sometimes we bloggers forget that less is often more.

One of my favorite quotations is from Emily Dickinson, “To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.”

My sister reminded me of a similar thought from Robert Sund, the Skagit poet and painter:

 

Summer Solstice

Its been a busy day.
First,
one hummingbird, then
another!
