green is gorgeous, white is beautiful......

there are so many beautiful things in the world.......i am just constantly amazed at this, the beauty all around us. it never ceases, it always is there for us.......we should never think the world has gone astray completely. these photos are testatment to the loveliness and gentility that still exists in the world. how i wish i could live this way.......my life is as wonderful and lovely as i can make it with the resources i have but i know if my life were a little different, i might be able to share so much more beauty with others. but, gratitude is a thing of beauty and gentleness as well, so i try to appreciate what is evident in my life. i hope you have things of beauty in your life as well, that inspire you and touch your heart......

Kooky's Return: the most amazing movie ever made!!!!!

I am totally obsessed with this movie!!!!! I have never, ever been so excited about any film as I am about this one. "Kooky's Return" is the most amazing, imaginative, crazy, quirky, wonderful film ever made. So unusual and so funny and sweet. It is about a little teddy bear but it has the most incredible characters I have ever seen. Mostly filmed in the forest, using real, handmade little people, animals and the oddest, most curious creatures you'll ever see.......made from things from the forest, worn out fabrics, metal, plastic, all kinds of wonderful materials.
If you go to google and look for "Kooky's official page", that will take you to the real website about the film. Then go to Kooky's Facebook page and there you can see trailers of the film and the most incredible, amazing videos of the making of the movie. You can also see the film on Youtube in English. You really need to hear the story in English because it's such a great story. "Kooky's Return" is from Czechoslovakia; the director is Jan Sverak, who has done some really wonderful feature films. "Kooky's Retrun" is a feature film but it is so different, I absolutely cannot wait to see it. It is now showing in Czechoslovakia, it opened in theaters this May here, but won't be available on DVD in the U.S. until next October. I actually wrote to the director about how to purchase the film and I was so surprised that he wrote me back. So, we'll have to wait until the fall to see the actual film but the trailers and the making of the movie videos are wonderful for now. I really hope you will go to the "Kooky's Return" website and see the trailers, etc. It is so wonderful!!!!!
Let me know what you think!!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are!

where is the secret room?

they walked quietly through the rooms, hushed and still. where was the secret room, the one they had heard so much about, where a treasure sat waiting.......

let life be beautiful and kind

let life be beautiful and kind,
with roses and beauties of flower in one's mind,
the hidden hearts a fluttering, a light......
let life beautiful and right.

pictures from blogs: snapping twig, twinkle life and......it should always be summer!

color, beauty, laughter, humor, sunshine, trees, green leaves, running, the sea, giggling, hiding, dusk, gardens, forest paths, foxes, birds, flowers, the forest, bees, dragonflys, seedlings, watermelon, ice cream, swimming, picnics, movies, fireflies, stars.......
things that make me think of summer and wishes that summer would last forever. why does it go by so fast.
the green leaves by my window are thick and lovely. mass of green and light pouring through beckoning me to escape this room, birds singing, waiting for me to run out into the bright sunshine. summer, oh summer......if you could just stay forever.
