Duets With Silence

A   L   O   H   A  
Flower Duet by Lakme on Grooveshark


 Holiday Parade

  " Poets have been 

mysteriously silent 

on the subject of 

cheese."

G. K. Chesterton 










 Charade Crepuscular

   " To send light

 into the darkness 

of men's hearts - 

such is the duty 

of the artist."


Robert Schumann










Self Portrait

" Behind every failure

 is an opportunity

 somebody wishes 

they had missed. "


Lily Tomlin 





 "Self-portraiture 
is something 
one should never 
get involved in, 
since it is wrong to lie 
even though one endeavours 
to tell the truth."

Ingmar Bergman 

There is no

self portrait

of me. "

Gustav Klimt

Dear Dear Friends
The Days Have Grown
Short-

But I have it on
Good Authority
That the 
Tide Has
Turned-

In more ways than one.

Keep the spark
A`Sparkling!

Keep Hope Alive;

And Toast Unburnt!

All things great
AND SMALL
Are Grist for the Mill
of the Will O The Wisp - 

Until we smile together again;  
                                                          Your Fond cloudia

Flying!...over beautiful warm orange clouds: nice. Matches the Patrick Downes song, "Flying." Self portrait is cool; it matches your occupation as an official aloha-ist.

Interesting quote about lying in self portraiture. Probably inevitably true.
