Eucatastrophe

A  L  O  H  A !
Eucatastrophe 

"The sudden joyous turn,
 not an ending, 
but the moment we get 
a glimpse of joy. " 

Word created by J.R.R Tolkien
 and first used 
in his fantasy saga, 
'the Lord of the Rings'.

Urban Dictionary (Link)




" The price of 
freedom of religion, 
or of speech, 
or of the press,
 is that we must put up 
with a good deal 
of rubbish. "

        Robert Jackson








 " The two most

important days

of your life,

are the 

day you are born - 






 - and the day

you find out

why."

Mark Twain







I love Honolulu!
Yesterday, I shopped 
in some Korean 
boutiques,
and got to use my limited
Korean to be polite.
Then a couple
at the next shop
was talking to me
in Spanish.
We are multi-lingual
and there are plenty
of flavors
here!

Thank You

for your friendly
