A  L  O  H  A   from   Honolulu!

“ To overcome the anxieties 
and depressions of 
contemporary life, 
individuals must become
 independent of the 
social environment to 
the degree that they 
no longer respond exclusively
 in terms of its 
rewards and punishments. -

" To achieve such autonomy,
 a person has to learn
 to provide rewards 
to herself. -

- She has to develop the ability 
to find enjoyment and 
purpose regardless 
of external

We keep trying,
keep flying.

Thank You
for winging 
                   Warmly, cloudia
