Quiet Side of the Canal

A   L   O   H   A !
Making Summer Memories

" We learn 
only 
from those 
we love. " 
                       Goethe















Watchful Eye

The best teacher 
suggests 
rather than dogmatizes,
 and inspires
with the wish 
to teach oneself. "
                                  Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
















Today's pictures come from the 
Mauka, or 'Mountain' side
of the Ala Wai Canal.
 Those towers are the "back" of
Waikiki. 















" Nature often
 holds up a mirror 
so we can see 
more clearly
 the ongoing processes 
of growth, renewal,
 and transformation 
in our lives. "
                             Mary Ann Brussat

Fishing safari!

I loved those as a kid. Used to get up too early in the morning, in anticipation.

my dad took me and brothers fishing when we were young. We didn't get a single fish.

Not sure I can agree with the quote that we learn only from those we love.

We also learn from those we dislike. An important lesson. We learn who we don't want to be.

Cloudia said...

Right you are. Charles seems to agree. I love when we discuss the limits of a quote this way!

Thanks EVERYONE
