I've Got Nothing

“Nothing can be created out of nothing."

~~ Lucretius aka Titus Lucretius Carus, Roman Philosopher and Epicurean Poet, 99 – 50 BC

I've got nothing.

Still nothing.

Hey Mr. Caterpillar, do you have something for me?



Lion of Lucerne, the monument is dedicated, "Helvetiorum Fidei ac Virtuti" ("To the loyalty and bravery of the Swiss"), designed by Bertel Thorvaldson and hewn by Lukas Ahorn, circa 1820-1821 (Lucerne, Switzerland)

King Louis XII Astride His Horse, statue over main gate of Château Royal de Blois, circa 1857 as a replacement for the original statue from the late 15th century, which was destroyed during the French Revolution in 1792 (Blois, France)

Back to me...

“To do nothing at all is the most difficult thing in the world, the most difficult and the most intellectual."

~~ Oscar Wilde, Irish Writer, Poet, Novelist, Dramatist, and Critic, 1854 - 1900

All this intellectualizing is making me sleepy.

You still here? I've told you, I've got nothing.

“I have nothing to declare except my genius"

~~ Oscar Wilde, Irish Writer, Poet, Novelist, Dramatist, and Critic, 1854-1900

I guess my genius is something. I'm just sayin'...

Hi Suka
Yes deep. Very philosophical.
And seeing the Lion of Lucerne featured on a blog has made Gail happy because she has a much loved (and now very elderly) Swiss godmother in Lucerne and has visited that beautiful city, and admired the Lion, and the adjacent 'Gletschergarten', many many times.
Toodle pip!

My Vickie just LOVES your face. She says you have gentle eyes and she gets lost when she looks into them.

Should I be worried?

My pal Suka,

You know that in my eyes you are everything to me just as you are!
Even if nothing is made out of nothing, all I know is that it does that great thought,imagination, plan and determination to make something out of nothing ;)

Keep relaxing and enjoying all that's around my friend, cause not many know how to do that as well like you.

Love ya,
Jon Terry

Hey Suka, So it was a quiet day of thinking and pondering for you? That can be good sometimes... We like the pics of you resting. We thought we saw you yesterday going for a walk. We think maybe he was your brother.
PeeEss: Were you trying to copy that Lion of Lucerne's pose?

Mr. Pip said...

I think you have got quite a bit, Suka! Intellectualizing makes me tired, too. You can just drive yourself mad with the big questions in life. It's best just to relax and let things happen. Looks like you are on the right track!

Your pal, Pip
