Beautiful Flowers 4 A Beautiful Day!

Beautiful flowers for a beautiful day!

In this painting, art does a wonderful job imitating life. 

I love the flower pot as well as the flowers. 

Nature, in real and artistic ways, fills us with renewed life. ย ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ice Cream Correctness

Thought this was a nice advertising for ice cream in the food court at the mall. 

It’s funny that they painted this over some doors, and you can see the lock in the center, right under the “Bomb Pop.”

In the age of radical terrorism, I wonder if that’s the best name for ice pops geared for children (and adults). 

I think we need to consider being emotionally intelligent and politically correct.

Since it’s red, white, and blue, how about rebranding it as the American Pop (with no ticking time bomb association)!  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Best Looking Bees


These are some of the best looking bees that I’ve ever seen.

They almost look friendly. 

No stinging, please!

Go ahead and pollinate the beautiful flowers. 

Then go back to the hive and make us some delicious, sweet honey. 

Bees bees bees. Buzz buzz buzz.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Power of Life and Death

Please see my new article in The Times of Israel called, “The Power of Life and Death.”

Itโ€™s so important to develop mastery over the whole life sequence: think nice thoughts, speak kind words, do good deeds, and develop positive habits. This is one of the secrets to life itself.

Life is often in the hands of our tongueโ€“one stupid word and it can mean your head, and one smart thing and it can be, with G-dโ€™s help, your ride to the stars!

Indeed, controlling your words, like controlling your desires, temper, and so on is a constant challenge we all face throughout life. Yes, itโ€™s easy to just let oneself go, but the consequences can be severe for shooting off your mouth, acting stupid, or getting angry. We can get better with patience, time, and practice. We can become better, stronger people. We can learn to guard not only our tongue, but our temperament and deeds, and live a better, and perhaps even a longer life for it. ๐Ÿ˜‰
