Homey's Town(s)

ALOHA, Friend
Welcome
to
Thursday in
WAIKIKI

V>

Click! Click and put your back into it!
Let's turn down the shouting, and turn up the honesty


"It is a general popular error
to imagine the loudest complainers
for the public
to be the most anxious
for it's welfare."
Edmund Burke




Grainy World of City Night



"Victory is sweetest
when you've known defeat."

Malcolm Forbes




Fake it till ya 'make it' if ya have to!


"Self confidence
is the first requisite
to great undertakings."

Samuel Johnson


><>


I have never been to Paris,
Vienna, Rome, or Jerusalem.
London I carry inside my words;
New York was there
when I needed her.

Philadelphia
is my
essence-elphia,

Honolulu
my home town.

San Francisco, city on a hill,
the one that got away.

Re-tasting these names of cities
evokes the Candy Graces:
Salt & Sweet.
The flavours of my
life.




ALOHA, my Friends! cloudia

Yesterday I found in my bookcase a book I have completely forgotten.
The dictionnary of the quotes of the world. But it is in french.
Aloha, Cloudia !

I had never heard this song before, until it was on that ad during the Olympics, with the cute snowboarder. She didn't win anything, but her commercial was sweet! LOL @ me. Anyway, it's a neat song.
