Mixed up Balancing

Yesterday I was working on a rather big project and doing my best to balance a notebook, cell phone and take photos...
This morning I smiled as I reviewed my collection of yesterday's snapshots and saw the photo of my shoe (which I had not realized I had taken) as I stepped along the pathway leading to the Walled Garden. And then I smiled even more as I was reminded of  the simply inspirational message below from Dr. Suess:

“You'll get mixed up, of course, as you already know.
You'll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go. So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact and remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act.
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. And never mix up your right foot with your left.” 
 Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!


Wishing you great balance (and surprise offerings of inspiration) as you step along today's life path.
Oh, the Places You'll Go!

What a wonderful post! Oh the places I'll go is to the wood shed to bring more wood up to the house to burn in the wood stove. It seems our lovely warm (albeit windy) weather has done an about face. Oh well nothing we can do about it. Are these photo's you took of your garden yesterday??? If so you are a VERY lucky woman! Enjoy your day...

Dr. Seuss knew how to make us think and those words are giving me much food for thought. Thank you Karen :-)

Karen,
I thought this picture was one big picture, but then I realized it is many pictures together. It looks so cool, and your shoe is perfect with the quote. Don't you just love Dr. Seuss? His sayings are always a favorite of mine. He uses his words cleverly to make so much sense. I hope that you have a fun and relaxing weekend, and keep taking more pictures. They are getting prettier and prettier ever time I visit.

His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
