There often seems to be a playfulness to wise people,

as if either their equanimity has as its source this playfulness

or the playfulness flows from the equanimity; and they can

persuade other people who are in a state of agitation to

calm down and manage a smile.--Edward Hoagland

This life is yours.
Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well.

Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite. Or waiting around for Friday night or waiting perhaps for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil or a better break or a string of pearls or a pair of pants or a wig with curls or another chance. Everyone is just waiting. -- Dr. Seuss

Many thanks to those featured today, for the work they do to better our world!!!

This concludes today's posting of CelebraZine (eZine to Celebrate What's Right in the World), a 'running blog carnival' (of posts both found and shared with me) that uplift and inspiration of sayings, video, audio (music and speech), images, poetry--anything and everything that feeds the positive in heart, spirit, and mind.

Our focus dictates what we see, which reinforces our focus, further confining the possibility of what we will see.

May you be blessed by these offerings reminding us of the beauty, wonder, and sacredness in the world around us and within us.

Celebrate yourself!

Be a part of the expression of celebration. Submit your submission (containing text, image, video, and audio, poetry, quotes, etc.) anytime for the daily installments of CelebraZine, a 'running blog carnival' of What's Right in the World.

Note: Even if you are not the blogger of the work you'd like to suggest, but have noticed someone's work that you think should be included in a Celebration of What's Right in the World--empowering people and spirit--please point out the work to us.

Blessings, dear ones,

I am inclined to believe the same too. Wise people can be very playful. For instance, one of my fav monks, Ajahn Brahm, often delivers his speech and presentation with humor and wit but with a very gentle quality. He is no different on stage or in person.
