YOU Make the Latitudes


" Give me
 the splendid silent 
sun, 
with all his beams 
full-dazzling! "


Walt Whitman 








This one makes me think
of YOU:

" Nothing makes the earth 
seem so spacious 
as to have friends 
at a distance;
 they make 
the latitudes 
and longitudes. "

Henry David Thoreau 













" I live in that 
solitude
 which is painful
 in youth, 
but delicious
 in the years 
of maturity. "

Albert Einstein

You do rainbows superbly. And they signify hope and beauty to me - so thank you. Lots.

Gorgeous rainbows. I'm reading your book, Cloudia and am just fascinated at how much Hawaiian history and information you know. It just blows me away. I was born and raised here and didn't know 75% of what you wrote about.
