“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” Confucius
Sometimes, we all wish life were simpler and that the usual minor annoyances and distractions would just vanish with the snap of a finger. I love today’s photo challenge – Simple – because it speaks to what most of us would love to do; simplify our lives. With that in mind, please read the rest below – A Simple Request – and enjoy the photos…
“Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.” Charles Mingus
A Simple Request: Dear fellow bloggers, It appears that as I furiously tried to play catch up on your blogs, my enthusiasm, inadvertently, made me a spam shark in the eyes of the WP spam police! My comments on your blogs have probably fallen (read: been moved) into your spam box. I always check my spam box because, from time to time, I see some of your feedback in there too. Please check your spam boxes and retrieve comments from fellow bloggers. I’ve spent many hours commenting on and liking your blogs, and some of us might not be aware that this happens to all of us. TY! Oy gevalt! I believe it was Piglet in Portugal that this spamification situation happened to once, so I’m confident the Happiness Engineers at WordPress will fix this poquito problema. I reckon it might be time to retire my excessive use of the words; Beautiful, Gorgeous, Stunning, Wonderful, Excellent, Lovely, I love this, Breathtaking, Perfect, and such pronouncements I make when I read your
beautiful superb blogs. Sorry WP, but I’m not giving up the word Brilliant!
“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things in nature have a message you understand, Rejoice, for your soul is alive.” Eleanora Duse
Naturally, I goggled the synonym for Beautiful and, via Thesaurus.com, the following showed up: admirable, alluring, angelic, appealing, beauteous, bewitching, charming, classy, comely, cute, dazzling, delicate, delightful, divine, elegant, enticing, excellent, exquisite, fair, fascinating, fine, foxy*, good-looking, gorgeous, graceful, grand, handsome, ideal, lovely, magnificent, marvelous, nice, pleasing, pretty, pulchritudinous, radiant, ravishing, refined, resplendent, shapely, sightly, splendid, statuesque, stunning, sublime, superb, symmetrical, taking, well-formed, wonderful. I’m not sure why foxy has an asterisk next to it; she must be hot! Moving forward, I will reach for one of these words or something that hasn’t been used ad nauseum! Forgive me if I trip up now and again, after all, your blogs are
excellent. Oops! Simply Brilliant! More below.
Update: I’ve reached out to Akismet Support. More later…
