Beautiful, serene, but somehow the water color makes me think of algae & murses - so Murst!

edgar said...

Foiled again!

Akubi said...

@Wagga,
The only thing missing is koi!

@edgar,
Flowy found the other Edgar find of the day!

Kitty said...

I wanna go there and curl up with my tail...

It's so beautiful... it's magic...

Thank you Akubi for making such a pretty idea in my mind...

Akubi said...

Hi Kitty!
I've been waiting for another tea delivery and can't think of much else, but I like the way the juxtaposition of the two images looked like a dog-friendly tea house/tree house. That's where I want to live and float and flow.

Akubi said...

Brief doggy/kiddy pool update: There are rubber duckies and fishies all over my garden and living room - not to mention water splashed here and there!

Kitty said...

Yes Akubi... it would be magical to live there... and watch the gentle sun come up and go down... and the seasons change... my heart would be calm and happy...

And on silly days float the rubber duckies across the water.... and let the doggies make a water mess... doggies+water=mess yes

This Particular UnRounded Life said...

"This particular life," came a voice like rustling grass, "is not rounded."

Akubi said...

Kitty,
Yes, that would be nice! Hopefully the dogs wouldn't mistake the koi for a rubber ducky.

I thought this was quite a happy flowy photo so I tagged it "flowy".

Akubi...

I love that... when I graduated from college I wore a dress almost exactly like... and a papier mache mask of a girl...

I was the only one dressed like that...

Akubi said...

@Flowy,
Seriously?!!

A T-shirt for Casey!

Akubi said...

Cute.

Akubi said...

All the food posts on Tumblr are making me hungry and all I have is the usual tofu crap!

PinkFlowyGirl(V) said...

Yes... there may be a picture of my graduation outfit but I imagine my Father burned all the images...

That was probably one of the saddest days of his life...

Kitty said...

Akubi...

Flowy... tofuey...

Akubi said...

Flowy/Kitty,
I think what I like about Tumblr is that it doesn't take much effort and satisfies the right side of my brain that doesn't get much stimulation at work. I just leave a Chrome browser open for Akubi Zone and briefly get my mind off of PowerShell, SAP, replication or whatever other nonesense is at hand.
At home, I can Tumblr while throwing balls and rubber ducks for Tanuki to catch.

Kitty said...

Akubi... yes... Tumblr is a soul stroker...

too little right brain life for us...

...relax, refresh, restore...
