Good Fences Honolulu

A   L   O   H   A  !

" There are joys which long to be 
ours.  
God sends ten thousands truths, 
which 
come about us
 like birds 
seeking inlet; 
but we are shut up to them,
 and so 
they bring us nothing, 
but sit and sing 
awhile upon the roof, 
and then fly away. "

 Henry Ward Beecher
