Good Morning — It is Saturday June 22, 2013 — And a beautiful foggy morning it is on this first full day of summer.

Via the speak bubble — What are your thoughts on beauty? — I will post your thoughts  but will reveal not their source.

The beauty of foggy mornings is great — but we have had many of them this spring – in fact I have posted photos of them here for you 2 c.   I think, by now, the beauty of a sunny morning would be refreshing  —   it probably would be like an illicit affair.  How would I know?  I saw it on Netflik and read it in one of Farley Mowat’s books which I am now reading.

Below is what some have said about BEAUTY:

1. Just because you’re beautiful and perfect, it’s made you conceited. – William Goldman, The Princess Bride

2. Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old. – Franz Kafka

3. If there are people who are indifferent to beauty, then it is surely because they do not perceive it. – Roger Scruton, Beauty

4. Beauty is but a lease from nature. – Edward Counsel, Maxims

5. Natural beauty takes at least two hours in front of a mirror. – Pamela Anderson

6. Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

7. That which is striking and beautiful is not always good, but that which is good is always beautiful. – Ninon de L’Enclos

8. In my family the females are beautiful, the men are handsome, and most of us are intelligent and, I guess, some of us are conceited  – Me

Now to show some beautiful animals I have seen and photographed this year:

We wood ducks are the most beautiful ducks - ask any female wood duck!

Thanks for that snack -- some of us are beautiful and some times we try to be cute

Mother knows and Mother says I am BEAUTIFUL!. If you want to argue, I will tell her you are picking on me -- So, do you want to argue?

Mother knows and Mother says I am BEAUTIFUL!. If you want to argue, I will tell her you are picking on me — So, do you want to argue???

And don't you forget it!
