Recuperating From Saturday

A L O H A!
What a Saturday It Was!
You're gonna want to click on photos :) Lions Being Brought to Life! They are watching
the Dragon chase the pill of immortality.

This thrills me anytime, anywhere.
Happy Autumn Moon Festival.
But I'm getting ahead of myself. . .

Uusually I'm driving past.
But yesterday I had time to really LOOK
at Makiki Christian Church (See yesterday's post for info).

Why look at this ornate interior.

But the festival was outside; Here I come!

"It's no accident that the church and the graveyard stand side by side. The city of the dead sleeps encircled by the city of the living."
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider

These folks are proud to make Andagi (Japanese donuts)
just like grandma used to make.
They ran out early;
luckily I got one of the last bags :)

I didn't even know that the church had a courtyard,
but it was full of food &
fun yesterday!

"Cherish your own emotions and never undervalue them."
Robert Henri

Then I went to the Splendor of China Trade Show & Festival
just a few blocks away.

I was JUST in time to see the lions brought to life to dance and open the event. (Top photo)

Great timing again, blog girl!

"There is nothing new under the sun
but there are lots of old things we don't know."
Ambrose Bierce

After which, I crossed King street to Thomas Square to
attend the InterTribal Pow Wow just in time to catch this
Wolf Dance by the Suquamish People of Alaska.

Your visit today is so very appreciated. . .
But I need to lay down for a while now.
L O L :)
