writing in my palm
in the park.

It's as if you 
are walking with me.
Every day!

I've never thought of it that way, but the image of us walking and conversing on Waikiki fits just fine!

Tom Clancy made sense there,

That Java Finch is most handsome!

I love going on walks with you. So beautiful. The finch, the fern (was that a fern?) and Sandberg's quote stood out for me. But it is all beautiful. Thank you.

Lucky I know it's a Java Finch!
They flip over cards to tell
fortunes in Asia - so I used to call them "Fortune Telling Birds."

How JOLLY each of you is to visit with us like this!
