Sincerity

A  L  O  H  A !

“The beginning

                  Mary Shelley



click on the dream home

" Be not the slave
 of your own past. 

Plunge into 
the sublime seas,
 dive deep 
and swim far, 

so you shall come back
 with self-respect, 
with new power, 

with an advanced experience
 that shall explain

 and overlook

 the old."
                 Ralph Waldo Emerson

( [ ] )

Nothing is
as American
as the 
"Fresh Start."

But everyone
get's a shiny
new one
Every Day.

Thank Goodness,
I am not defined
by the dumbest
or meanest
thing I have
ever done!

What is fresh

Our World Tuesday

A  L  O  H  A !
Nothing Says "Hawaii" 
                                like dear Diamond Head!

"I promise 
if you keep searching
 for everything beautiful 
in the world, 
you 
will eventually 
become it."

Our World Tuesday
Awaits You

Mural Car

A  L  O  H  A !
We are on a ROLL 
with another Mural Car!
This VW Rabbit is 
a paean to Nature.
Love the Butterflies.

"Outa my way!"

enables us 
to find ourselves

Luminous Thirds

A  L  O  H  A !

"Things turn out best 
for the people 
who make the best
 out of the way
 things turn out. "
                             Art Linkletter


Sounds trivial
but deeply true











"Nothing
 is particularly hard
 if 
you divide it
 into small jobs. "
                       Henry Ford




This truth got me through
university . . . . and 
Life!






" When a noble life 
has prepared old age, 
it reveals not decline
but immortality's
 first days. "
                               Germaine De Stael

Threes & thirds
describe something,
ARE something
deep & fundamental.

The stool will not stand
without a third leg.

There is no Story
without
Beginning, Middle
& End.

Till age Thirty
we become/mold
 ourselves,
prove ourselves
in the becoming,
acquire Skills
and Lessons.

From Thirty
to Sixty
we mate, create,
most reproduce,
raise young,
make family,
community and
continue to learn
to ripen;
We peak 
physically
build wealth
and regrets.

From Sixty on
we synthesize,
we realize
our themes &
meanings:
the Truth about 
ourselves
and our experience.

Confirmations 
& Surprises.

Time to meditate
to dream,
to fully Feel
the Wonder of
Being Alive,
yea 
in the shadows
of eternity.

And if we are 
Lucky
we find one last boon
the chance to
Love
and Be Loved,
through person,
pet,
and planet.

Amen?

Thanks for visiting
for hanging here!

" Generally, 
by the time you are real, 
most of your hair 
has been loved off, 
and your eyes drop out 
and you get loose 
in the joints 
and very shabby. 

But these things 
don’t matter at all, 
because once you are
 real 
you can’t be ugly, 
except to people 
who don’t understand."
