Art and the philosophy of life

Archive for August, 2015

A gentle reminder…

The stars don’t go away during the daytime.  They’re still there, we just can’t see them.  Sometimes people forget that.  ❤   It’s good to remember that what we believe to be true …sometimes isn’t.

I have shown this picture before but it’s one of my favorites.  I love this beautiful Koi.  She reminds me of a silver angel.

Why do we have to write “reblog,” on things we reblog, even it we posted them over a year ago?

Is it okay to just type “reblog” on something, since I can never find anything among my posts, but know where the actual picture is?  I’m okay with that.

What happens if we don’t write “reblog,” on something?

Is something reblogged if you make changes in the size, etc. of the item?

Any info would be appreciated.  Thank you:)



Follow your bliss…
