A break from politics to reflect on beauty and the wonderful diversity of life in this world.

WA: Sometimes we need to "stop and smell the roses." It is tragic that so much of the diverse life on our planet is rapidly disappearing. We need to take time to see and remember it while we can and try our best to preserve it for posterity. (Aren't they lovely?)

Old Chinese Proverb say: Person who smell roses might end up with angry bee in nostril!

Beee good now and keep your chins up!

WA: Now, now, Daniel..... :-) Old Texas proverb say: "Y'all better check them flowers fer bees before sticking' your nose in 'em." Hope you are weathering the weather OK down under.
Incidentally, Fellow Texans, FYI: Australia has a town named "Texas". I found it on an Australian map when searching to see if the terrible wildfires were near our friend, Daniel. Check it out:,_Queensland

Hi, Native Texan, glad you finally decided to visit me over here. Come back again and dip your toes in the political waters. It's like diving into a sewer but somebody's gotta do it; if we Americans don't, who will stand up for us?

Those adorable babies are Golden Lion Tamarins, also known as Golden Lion Marmosets. Lots of sites about them on search.I'm going to post on them on Old Woman. These tiny simians are on the Endangered Species list.

I like what you're doing to your blog. I see you decided on Yellow Rose instead of Cactus Flower. Both were pretty.

WA: P.S. If you want to use the map I have on Mesoamerica, I'll send you the url.
