Reach Out Angels

A  L  O  H  A !
" As long as you are kind
 and there is love
 in your heart;
 A thousand hands 
will naturally 
come to your aid;

- As long as you are kind 
and there is love 
in your heart;
 You will reach out 
with a thousand 
hands to help others. "

and we only know them 
when they are gone.”

Happy? Who Cares?

A  L  O  H  A !

We put a lot of emphasis
on feeling good.
"I just want my
children to be happy"
we say.

We avoid bad feeling,
chase good feelings,
but feelings come and go
like weather any way.

We can create conditions
for happiness, and avoid
what brings us down,
but 99.99% of humans are
NOT happy all the time.

I was thinking:
"so what?"

Worrying about happiness
seems like a huge waste
of time, as well as an
internal contradiction.

Perhaps we are happiest
when we are NOT thinking
about it at all!

Gratified sociopaths are happy.

We who care, are often unhappy
about something that is wrong.
And so we try to fix it.
That's some productive

Maybe our feelings
are not as important
as our choices.
Get them right,
and happy tends
to result.

I choose to be happy;
but not worry too much
when I'm not.
I'm adopting a 
So What attitude.

I hope you feel good today.
But if you are mourning,
I will cry with you.
Supporting a friend
makes me happy.
Such a contradictory life!

Thank YOU -

Honolulu Front and Back

A  L  O  H  A !
 Waikiki Beach & Diamond Head.
THAT's Honolulu to most people

 Rainbows, Resorts, Ocean Views

Click Photo to Stand in Street
This little wood frame house,
surrounded by mid [20th] Century
walk-up apartments speaks to me
of a city growing.

19th Century Chinatown.
Modern  towers 'photo bombing'
the shot

From the Japanese plantation carpenters
who built so many wood frame, local
style shacks, houses, temples,

. . . To the high rises going
up today, Honolulu
is a dynamic Pacific City.

I join all previous 
residents going back 
centuries in saying:
"You should have been
here 30 years ago;
It was so different,
so beautiful then!"

Thanks for Visiting!

The Only Argument

A  L  O  H  A !

 has renounced the use and 
authority of reason is like

" Arguing serves the function 
of being a zone of familiarity 
into which you can retreat 
when you are afraid
of making a 
creative breakthrough.

you have to win,
