Fifty Cent Fortunes

In today’s economy, it’s often difficult to find a good deal. Estrella, who lives and works at Marsh’s Free Museum, is happy to predict your future for a mere fifty cents a pop. You can’t beat that. She doesn’t even seem to mind that she is completely overshadowed by Marsh’s most famous denizen, Jake the Alligator Man (who will be featured later this month).

The fortune for today:

I see a great deal of happiness in store for you. Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. So, if an object you ardently pursue brings little happiness when gained, remember most of our pleasures come from unexpected sources. Share the good news when it arrives.

For happiness is like a sunbeam which the least shadow shall intercept, while suffering is often as the rain of spring. Enjoy this very day.

I have suspicions that Estrella may be moonlighting after hours for Hallmark in their Retro Greetings Department.

A big thank-you to my friend Larry for turning my photos into a side-by-side image. It took him three minutes to do something I couldn’t figure out how to do in two hours. A Photoshop tutorial may be in order.

Thanks also to Astoria, Oregon Daily Photo for a very warm welcome to the City Daily Photo blogging world.

    This was fun, and a great image. I love Marsh’s! Haven’t visited in quite awhile. Thanks for the link 🙂

      You’re welcome! I love Marsh’s too. I think I could easily get a month’s worth of photos out of that place.
