By Chance, By Perseverence

A  L  O  H  A !


"  What's money? 
A man is a success 
if he gets up in the morning
 and goes to bed at night
 and in between 
does what he wants to do."

Bob Dylan














“ It is by chance 
that we met, 
by choice 
that we became
 friends.”

Pythagoras

















" When drinking water, 
think about the source. "

Tibetan Proverb


The vast majority
of what Hawaii
Eats, wears, uses
comes over the sea.
The Law of the Seas
keeps the lanes
open.
Always on Watch.
Keeping the Peace.

Question 
the Decision Makers,
but always thank
Those Who Serve.

In between getting up and going to bed, you do what you want to do. I can see that as success. I'm not often very successful it seems by that characterization.

Hey, today I'm successful! And Pixie is too! Aloha water starts where the clouds ram into the jagged peaks and meander back to the sea through tunnels and trenches: (I loved the innertube float ride in the old sugard cane irrigation ditches -- da flume! Good spirits everywhere!) DrumMajor

That's one of the things I enjoy most about Bob Dylan- he's always thinking, and putting those glorious thoughts into song!
