staring into the infinitesimal forest
and seeing it grow populous with fairy armies."

was Kirk, Bones and Spock, and their utter loyalty.
There's nothing more powerful than that."

would still not give me half enough time
to describe that tiny instant of all eternity
when you put your arms around me

Sure is Summer, isn't it?
Well, here in the northern it is.
Minds wander, and blog traffic dips.

But the desire to take pictures,
to reach out,
and to share with jolly friends
only blossoms.

We excuse each other
for the long days of reverie
far from the internet.

Love you guys;
That's ALOHA!
