Both Sides Age Gauge

A  L  O  H  A   from   Honolulu!
" Youth is not a time of life;

 it is a state of mind. . . 











- it is a matter of the will, 

quality of the imagination, 

a vigor of the emotions; 

it is the freshness of 

the deep springs of life. "
                         Samuel Ullman









Morning Palm through fence,
framed by surfboards

" With age 
come the inner,
 the higher life. 
Who would be 
forever young, to 
dwell always in 
externals? "

Elizabeth Cady Stanton


Thank You

The palm trees are a feast for the eyes. Youth is a state of mind that some people fail to appreciate.

I love that song, and agree that we can always be young at heart! But my joints tell me I'm getting up there. :-/

Isn't it lovely the way we can simultaneously be older than dirt, and as young as we ever were.
