Aloha Thursday

A  L  O  H  A !
" It is only

 in an atmosphere 

of quiet 

that true joy 

dare live. "

Bertrand Russell

  “ Sometimes being a friend 

means mastering the art 

of timing. -

- There is a time for silence.

A time to let go 

and allow people 

to hurl themselves 

into their own destiny.

 And a time to prepare 

to pick up the pieces 

when it's all over.”

 Gloria Naylor 

Ah! The "original"


Thank You!

Yeah, letting go is hard, since we can't fix everyone's stuff.

Okay, I got the coffee. The eyeballs say those are purple leaves. Brain is struggling, since I'm not doing all those cute things I did in the '60s/'70s. The pink hotel I understand.
Aloha for the spin. DrumMajor
