Every Day Gold

ALOHA means:

'Welcome! Glad to See YOU!'

A Ted Trimmer beauty!

"Until you make peace with who you are,

you'll never be content with what you have."

Doris Mortman

"A good traveler has no fixed plans

and is not intent upon arriving.

A good artist lets his intuition lead him

wherever it wants."

- Lao-Tzu

“How come the dove gets to be the peace symbol?

How about the pillow?

It has more feathers than the dove,

and it doesn't have that dangerous beak”

Jack Handy

Tall Ship!


Recent research shows
that we soon grow accustomed
to new pleasures:
that new car,
the beach house that was so hard to get.

Investigators advised leaving that beach house
from time to time
so one might have their pleasure freshened.

I know that all it takes
is a ten day off-island trip
for the romance to be re-ignited.

Scene: Airplane cabin, return trip, approaching Diamond Head.
Characters: Me and a nice lady.
Action: I am softly crying.

Nice Lady (sympathetically): "Returning home?"

Me. "Yes" (blubber)

N.Lady: "How long have you been away?"

Me: "tttTEN Days!"



It's official: I've lost it!

But, you know, walking outside on deck this morning
the skies were eloquent, fish were swimming around,
and we're still floating.
"Gotta remember to really enjoy all this," I told myself
sternly...except that I was standing in the bow at the time :)

Our friend Ted Trimmer has been too busy studying photography
to share many new photos with us here.

The other day we were discussing English landscape painters and their genius with light.
"Yes, they specialized in doing the most with their limited, northern English light," Says Ted.

Brilliant! Thanks, Ted for teaching me something new.

And thank YOU for visiting!
