“May the stars carry 
your sadness away, 
may the flowers fill 
your heart with beauty, 




Mr. Bugeia, Miwok Descendant
may hope forever 
wipe away your tears, 
and, above all, may 
silence make you strong.” 
    Chief Dan George

E oʻu mau kiaʻi mai ka pō mai
O my guardians, from remote antiquity
E nānā ʻia mai ka hale o kākou
Watch over our home
Mai luna a lalo
From top to bottom
Mai kahi kihi a kahi kihi
From one corner to the other
Mai ka hikina a ke komohana
From east to west
Mai ka uka a ke kai
From (the side facing) the upland 
to the (side facing the) sea
Mai loko a waho
From the inside to the outside
Kiaʻi ʻia, mālama ʻia
Watch over and protect it
E pale aku i nā hoʻopilikia 
ʻana i ko kākou nohona
Ward off all that may 
trouble our life here

"I am grateful for everything 
life has given me, even though 
it’s not all happiness.
Though you haven’t received 
everything you want in life, 
you are blessed enough to 
have all that you need. 
Life is just like a piano. 
White keys represent joy 
while black show sadness. 
As you go through life, 
remember the black keys 
make music too."
     Chinese Saying





The kiss of the breeze,
or the simple benediction
      of a child. . . .

More Pleasure Than A Present

A  L  O  H  A !
"Sprinkle joy."

      Ralph Waldo Emerson






"Do not be afraid of 
showing your affection. 
Be warm and tender,
 thoughtful and affectionate. 
Men are more helped by 
sympathy, than by service; 





- love is more than money, 
and a kind word will give 
more pleasure than a present."
                  John Lubbock
