Crusing Palolo Valley

Aloha Friend!

"The Dragon Upstairs" on Nu`uanu.

"Jazz is an intensified feeling of nonchalance."


-- Fran├žoise Sagan





Cruising in Palolo Valley is fun.



"If I rest I rust."


Placido Domingo



This home has a view of tiny, doll-like houses on the ridge behind.



"When I was a kid, I went to the store and asked the guy,

'Do you have any toy train schedules?' "


— Steven Wright





The Korean Temple


The top peak was above city regulations
and neighbors demanded that it be "trimmed."
See the flat place?


"Five enemies of peace inhabit with us -

avarice, ambition, envy, anger, and pride;

if these were to be banished,

we should infallibly enjoy perpetual peace."

Petrarch




Looking back into Diamond Head
as we drive out of the Valley.


"Most of American life consists of driving somewhere

and then returning home,

wondering why the hell you went."



John Updike



Thanks for swinging by today! cloudia
