The Wilde Perspective

We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

Oscar Wilde

Senryü: Wilde Possibilities

hope from the heavens
potential life within view
the stars in our eyes

Your New Dream Home

In the heart of the city
Minutes from the harbour
Close to stores, schools
And public transport
Open floor plan
Energy efficient
Fresh air ventilation system
Low flow plumbing fixtures
Drip irrigation system
And yesterday I found a dollar
Comes see this dream home
for yourself

Roadside Gutter, 1 Merrion Square N, Dublin

Hay(na)Ku: modern tendency

Now deemed
The wild perspective

I knew that dismembering farming accident
Was a blessing from the start
Because otherwise, I would never have met you
The on-call nurse of my heart

The FULL Edition:

The Optimist:
The glass is half full
The Realist:
The glass is half full and half-empty
The Pessimist:
The glass is half full of rat poison

An Attitude of Persistence and Fortitude

Come on, baby
You know
I will try again
tomorrow night
  And the next
   And the next
And the next

According to researchers from Stanford University, Optimists have higher quality and longer-lasting romantic relationships.

  1. I see an Irish theme to your musings today Mouse with the opening quote and Find Your Dream Home piece! 😁 Which is cool! 😎👍 The opening quote has always been a favourite of mine! 😁

  2. Oh, I’m going to like this monthly theme, Mouse. I was wondering about the Stanford research on optimism. I am an optimist (generally) and have had a lovely relationship with my husband for multiple decades. But he’s a pessimist. OMG!

    1. It’s what I try to do. A range of perspectives.
      I’ve been working on optimism, or a more neutral carefree existence. It’s working until I have to deal with my children 😏
