You'll Understand

 A L O H A ! 
 Utopia is in the moment.

Not in some future time, 

some other place, 

but in the here and now,

or else it is

nowhere.” 

Alfred Stieglitz

 (1864-1946)

















" He was a true Hawaiian.

He was never about 

money or status,

 and he spread

The Aloha 

to everybody. "

 Mike McCartney

" It is absurd

 to divide people

 into good and bad.

People are either

charming or tedious."


Oscar Wilde 



" If you use your mind 

to study reality, 

you won't understand 

either your mind

 or reality. -








- If you study reality

 without using your mind,

 you'll understand both. "

Bodhidharma

Loving all these, that Wilde quote is such a classic. And so true about a true Hawaiian!

Erik Donald France said...

Hey hey Cloudia,

Lovin it ~! The Stieglitz quip reminds me of Jakob Böhme, the mystic, who wrote something along those lines and got me to musing back in Philadelphia. Paradise Found. It's true. And Hawaii looks like its avatar . . .

I don't think I want to understand reality - or my mind.
And I do love the Wilde quote - thank you.
