Flossie Not Bossie

A  L  O  H  A !

" The inner spaces
 that a good story
 lets us enter -








- are the old apartments 
of religion. "

John Updike









Kimono Ladies in Waikiki
" Be not the first


 by whom the new
 are tried, 





Nor yet the last
 to lay the old 
aside. "

Alexander Pope 









Thank You for visiting!

I would prefer to be first or last, the middle is to crowded.

What a polite storm: it slings some plumeria blossoms around. Are the Japanese ladies "orthodox" visitors or employees at a restaurant? Diversity is delightful! DrumMajor

Was that a special occasion for the kimono wearers, or...
These tidbits of cultural exchanges are what keeps me blogging. Thank you.

Those kimonos are beautiful, though they seem uncomfortable. I guess fashion doesn't ever pay attention to that. Have a good day Claudia.

Looks like Flossie is heading westward out to sea away from YOU. Hooray! Enjoyed seeing your shots of those lovely ladies in their kimonos.

Kimono's in Hawaii? That's unexpected.

Greetings,

I guess Pope wasn't a dedicated follower of fashion!

Not sure we ever "lay the old aside."
