Trees and Rainbow Critters

A L O H A !
" When I am silent,
 I fall into one place
 where everything
 is music." 
                      Rumi










" When the first baby laughed 
for the first time, 
its laugh broke 
into a thousand pieces,
 and they all went 
skipping about, 
and that was
 the beginning 
of fairies.” 
                                J.M. Barrie, 
                                                 Peter Pan

The ancients lived
in an animate world.

So do we,
if we are 
alive enough,
free enough,
to laugh caution
to the winds.

May Your Spirit
S O A R!

What I'm Really Saying

A L O H A !
 What A Wonderful World by Israel Kamakawiwo╩╗ole on Grooveshark
 However long the night

The dawn will break   
                       African Proverb 









" The colors of the rainbow 
so pretty in the sky
And also on the faces 
of people passing by
I see friends shaking hands 
saying 'How do you do?'
They're really saying 
I, 
I love you "

"My work is not accidental 

and not planned. "
                    Hans Hofmann 








I like the man seen 
through the rip in the fence!

When eating vegetables, 

remember the one 

who planted them.
                    Chinese Proverb

I even invented
a term for it:
"Grooming Language."

When primates are
together, they
groom one another.
Simple enough.

But when the job
is done,
they carry on
touching, stroking,
attending.

strengthens social bonds
and health.

I have not 
combed out my 
neighbors-

BUT

The routine things
we say,
that have no
practical utility
are Grooming Language.

No one needs
to say it's a cold
[or hot] day"
And few really
CARE about 
"How is your day going"?

In New York
it is quick:
"How you doin?"

And the answer
is: "Good."
Just as quick,
but effective.

"God be with you"
['Good bye']
"Aloha"
O Genki Desu Ka?
[How is your health?]

May seem routine,
even pointless sometimes.
As pointless as breathing
over and OVER again!

So How's it goin'?

What I'm really saying?

I Love You,
Friend!
