The Optimist

My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair.  So, let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world. – Jack Layton

    That quote says it all. And the birdies have the right idea …. stay hopeful because if you lose hope, you lose any chance at all 🙂

    Lovely photo to match the quote. Birds feeding in winter are really a sign of hope and optimism ..now that I think of it.

      Yes, indeed ….. Especially in the midst of a snowstorm. Poor little things.

    Janet, this is a wonderful shot! I try so hard to capture my birds on our feeder and am never as successful! I love this, it fits the challenge beautifully!

      Thanks Grace! I’m very pleased with the photo, too. Those birdies are very cheeky!
