Feral Oahu Rooster

A  L  O  H  A !

 Proud Feral Rooster!

At two o'clock in the morning, 
if you open your window and listen, 
You will hear the feet of the Wind 
that is going to call the sun. 
And the trees in the Shadow rustle 
and the trees in the moonlight glisten, 
And though it is deep, dark night, 
you feel that the night is done.”  
Rudyard Kipling

Thank You!
           Warmly, cloudia

A Hush Over the Crowd

A  L  O  H  A !
" Perfection is a trifle dull. 
It is not the least 
of life's ironies 
that this, which 
we all aim at, 
is better not
quite achieved. "
                   Somerset Maugham

“The broad-minded see 
the truth in 
different religions;
 the narrow-minded see 
only the differences”
                       Chinese Proverb

“Spread love 
everywhere you go:
 First of all 
in your own house...
 let no one ever come to you 
without leaving better and happier.
 Be the living expression 
of God's kindness; 
kindness in your face,
 kindness in your eyes, 
kindness in your smile,
                      Mother Teresa 


What are you
spreading around?

I'm making up for
all the disharmony
I spread before:
"Get OUT of MY Way!"

One thing I share
is music.
Never without
my little 

Was at the Busiest
Costco in the Chain
(Iwilei, Honolulu)
the other day.

It was a mad house!

The crowd at the check-out
was restless for 
Hawaii people.

Everyone in Hawaii
knows "Hawaii Aloha"
many events, 
including the legislative
session, open with
this song.

So I like to start
with Hawaii Aloha,
then segue into
Aloha `Oe
to respect this place,
the spirits that linger,
and any local person
in earshot.

I began playing.

A hush.

Then soft singing
by some present.

The time flew by
and it was my turn.

Folks let me know
that they liked it.

Once a woman told me:
"You changed the whole
atmosphere in here!"

What a gift
to be able to
do that!
The gift of music.

Then I left.

Everyone's day
was better after that.
Or so I like to believe.

Just let your ego go
and BLOW!

Here's a quick & dirty
recording of me
jazzing up those
venerable songs:
