Person or Cat

A  L  O  H  A !

" I love people 

who make me laugh. -  












- I honestly think 
it's the thing 
I like most, 
to laugh. -












- It cures 
a multitude of ills. -

















 - It's probably -

















- the most important thing -












- in a person. "

                     Audrey Hepburn

" Or Cat. "             Cloudia Head-burn  



Thanks for sharing the laugh here with us!

Maybe You're NOT Done

A  L  O  H  A !


“ Nothing is impossible,
 the word itself says 
'I'm possible'! ” 

 Audrey Hepburn




What is going on with me?

I sort of wish I knew,

I sort of DO know,

I sort of DON'T care.






My Cathedral


Maybe it's the impending

( L O O M I N G ) 

"Big Birthday."

My Mom was (still is)

beautiful as a model,

Hair, Makeup, Clothes.

So I rebelled, by being

the girl in leather

riding a motorcycle

back before it was chic.

Mrs. Peel, Honey West 

and me, 

we invented it!

(At least for the late 20th Century,

and there were other acolytes,

of course.  Yeah, I'm talking to

YOU, Pat Benatar)




So here I am, a retired

"Young Wild Womyn"

Thinking I'm washed-up,

that my glow is gone.





When all of a sudden

I'm starved for color:

on my lips, nails,

and back (front too).






A few months ago,

I wore (essentially)

the same uniform

everyday:

Cargo/carpenter shorts,

Chinatown T-Shirt 

to conceal

my shape.

Throw on a helmet,

jump on the scooter:

Cest Moi.

Now I wouldn't be caught

DEAD dressed like that!





And yes (thanks Gwyneth) 

you CAN wear a cute dress 

on a scooter.




This is a resort area.

Our visitors enjoy dressing up.

Now so do I - 

I don't know why.

But it's working

with my usual benevolent 

s m i l e

to make of my world

a happier, warmer place.

People seem glad

to see me (yes see).

I'm a frequent flyer

at Sephora,

and even got a 

salon cut (found a genius).

Daryl calls it "Beautifying"

I call it a lovely mystery.

I'm not as old as I thought.

Just ask the pleasant men &

women too,

that now seem to smile

at me daily.

What a world!

DON'T  PRE - AGE

YOURSELF!

I love you too much for that.

Thanks for being a dear - 

          for visiting us here - cloudia

Waikiki Morning Walk


A  L  O  H  A !

“ Over the years

I have learned

that what is important

in a dress 

is the woman 

who is wearing it . ”

Presidents and Hobos


A  L  O  H  A !




" The soul knows 

what to do 

to heal itself. 

The challenge is 

to silence the mind. "

Caroline Myss






Kia Ora, (Hello / Aloha) Maori Man



" I just want to go through 

Central Park

 and watch folks passing by. 

Spend the whole day 

watching people.

 I miss that. "

President, Barack Obama

(Of course, Waikiki is where he honed

his people watching.

His grandpa brought him 

to the beach often. 

My mom saw Senator Obama 

walking unrecognized 

in Waikiki before he 

decided to run for President. . . . )










" I know the police cause you trouble 

They cause trouble everywhere 

But when you die and go to heaven 

You find no policeman there ” 

― Woody Guthrie
Hobos Lullaby






















“ And above all,

 watch with glittering eyes 

the whole world around you

 because the greatest secrets

are always hidden

 in the most unlikely places.

 Those who 

don't believe 


in magic 



will never find it. ”

                    Roald Dahl







Thanks my Friend!

This site welcomes you

gratefully
