Happy Aloha Friday!
After September 11th, 2001 we heard lots about a "New Normal" but it wasn't very normal at all for a formerly "free country." So today's "New Normal" is partly a restoration of the way things SHOULD NORMALLY be; but it is also distinctly new indeed. A delicious new Trade Wind is blowing. Can you feel it? As my sails fill, I'm beginning to believe that we as a people are back on course. . .
. . . Recently we have had public servants run amok in our name. Today it seems that we have leaders worthy of the name. Every day will not be a mountaintop experience, life's mundane tasks remain. But I believe that I am not the only one standing a little taller. This new normal is pregnant with hope and good will. So let's take a much needed break, and go over to Cafe Duck Butt to sing some karaoke! "me me me me me, la la la la" . . . . A L O H A! Cloudia
