All Me Today

A  L  O  H  A !

Becoming angry
only makes you a mirror
of what you hate.










 Boat Kitty

Not rising to the bait,
allowing understanding
to arise,
leaves the hate 
behind.








 All Earthly Absolutes

are Absolutely Ridiculous!














Things that touch us
 when we are very young 
have a special resonance
 life-long; Even more so
in mature years... 


Thank YOU
for sharing the day!

the tree sigh?
The breeze

Feel the Trade Winds,
delicious,
raising the little 
hairs on the back
of your arm?

Simply Interesting

A  L  O  H  A !
" To make anything interesting

you simply have to

look at it long enough. "

" Inside every old person

is a young person

wondering 

what happened. "

a type of sin

against the vast

and wondrous 

panorama of life -




- to make your world
small, shrink-fitted
to convenience,
immunized against
change and unfamiliarity. "
                                    Bob Shacochis
