Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement. ....get up in the morning and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted. Everything is phenomenal; everything is incredible; never treat life casually. To be spiritual is to be amazed.

You need to let the little things that would ordinarily bore you suddenly thrill you.
~ Andy Warhol Oh, Andy, you were right on the money with that quote! And I DO get thrilled with the "little things" - even tiny spiders - and this one WAS TINY! (Another one I took with my iPhone andOlloclip Lens.)
You have to be unique, and different, and shine in your own way.
~ Lady Gaga
These are birds I don't see very often - usually just when I'm on vacation in NC. This one posed for me at the NC Aquarium (Pine Knoll Shores) I LOVE that curve of his bill. This one was in the middle of preening but paused just a moment for me.
