"Autumn asks that 
we prepare for the future —
that we be wise in the ways of 
garnering and keeping. But 
it also asks that we
 learn to let go—to 
acknowledge the beauty 
of sparseness."
          Bonaro W. Overstreet








“The snow goose need not bathe 
to make itself white.
 Neither need you do 
anything but be yourself.”

"I go to nature to be 
soothed and healed, 
and to have my senses
 put in order."
            John Burroughs









"To love yourself right now, 
just as you are, is 
to give yourself heaven. 
Don't wait until you die. 
If you wait, you die now. 
If you love, 
you live now. "

Even In A Disaster

A  L  O  H  A !
Even in a 
time of disasters,
someone somewhere is
in love, is safe is happy.









The World is a mixed bag.
Even though you care,
even as you help,
find your life's 
own sweet spot.






Find your life's 
own sweet spot
Be and live the lovely 
things around you.










Don't allow despair
to despoil the sunlight
that you have been given.
Rest when rest is needed.











May love and peace
spread and heal.
May it start with a
quiet joy you
allow yourself to feel.

Wee Confession

A  L  O  H  A !
Oh Bow! You Go! GLOW!

“I felt my lungs inflate 
with the onrush of scenery—
air, mountains, trees, people. 
I thought, "This is what 
it is to be happy.” 
                                          Sylvia Plath







Stick The Landing

"Pain is a sudden hurt 
that can't be escaped. 
But then I have also learned 
that because of pain, I can 
feel the beauty, tenderness, and 
freedom of healing. Pain feels 
like a fast stab wound 
to the heart. But then 
healing feels like the 
wind against your face when 
you are spreading your wings 
and flying through the air! 
We may not have wings 
growing out of our backs, 
but healing is the closest thing 
that will give us that wind 
against our faces.” 
                         C. JoyBell C.






Yes. We have time for You!

“There 
will always
a glimmer 
in those
who have been 
          through the dark.”        
       AtticusPoetry



Time for a wee confession.

I do not create this blog
alone.
Kitty Pixie sits by my knee
making suggestions.

And a lot of it  is
written by Angels.

Here is an example:
I first chose the 
dog photo, and later, 
the quote below it. 

I liked the quote to end on.
And dogs are ALWAYS
emissaries of good vibes.
No connection beyond that;
Happenstance or 
Angels had put it there
and I didn't know why.

But in proofing before posting
I noticed something linking
the dogs with that quote.
[Often, I do not 'get it'
until I read it online
with you.]
Perhaps they are rescue
dogs! There always is a
special glow of appreciation
when you have been through 
tough times. Pixie knows.
So do I, You?



Thank YOU

Dancing Back Home

A  L  O  H  A  !
 The San Francisco Bay Area
and Hawaii are cousins
you might say.
There are many connections
that I am discovering.

At a recent event in Novato,
I had the chance to recharge
my Na`au with
H U L A.

ENJOY!







 “I believe that dance is the 
oldest, noblest and most 
cogent of the arts. -

the most perfect symbol of 
the activity of God 
and His angels. -








 I believe that dance has 
the power to heal, mentally 
and physically. . . ”

"He who is unable to dance 
says the yard is stony."
