Heart Life Pleasures

 A L O H A From Honolulu!
When your heart speaks take good notes. Judith Campbell

Life is a succession of moments.

 To live each one is to succeed.

            Corita Kent


A little "thank you" that you will say to someone for a "little favour" shown to you is a key to unlock the doors that hide unseen "greater favours". Learn to say "thank you" and why not?
 Israelmore Ayivor

Why not seize the pleasure at once, how often is happiness destroyed by preparation, foolish preparations.
Jane Austen

Free To Delight

A L O H A From Honolulu!

In ordinary life we hardly realize
that we receive a great deal more
than we give, and that it is only
with gratitude that life becomes rich.
Deitrich Bonhoeffer

 Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. Mother Theresa

Birds sing after a storm;
why shouldn't people feel
as free to delight in
whatever sunlight
remains to them?
Rose Kennedy

She has a light inside her
that makes other people look better. Homer Simpson, Of his wife Marge

The Promised Land always lies on the other side of a Wilderness. Havelock Ellis

are both branches 
on the same tree.

be human. John Pavlovitz

When Morning Comes

A L O H A From Honolulu!

When the morning comes,
let it go, this
too shall pass.
Cindy Woodsmall

Stars weave dreams
on midnight’s quilt.
First rays of dawn
reveal their built.
Amogh Swamy

would be like if each of us
offered, as a matter of course,
just one kind word
to another person.

Oncidium sphacelatum is a
species of orchid that ranges
from Mexico to Central America
and southeastern Venezuela.
It's also known as the
Dancing-lady Orchid or
Kandyan dancer orchid
in Sri Lanka.

Some people are like unpaid therapy.
They come, they shine,
make us smile and never ask
for anything in return.
Those are important people.
   Michael Oluwaseun

Life isn't about getting and having,
it's about giving and being!
     Giovanni Sawyer

The problem with
closed-minded people is that
their mouth is always open.

Inner Peace

A L O H A From Honolulu!

pitying myself, and all
the while I am being carried
across the sky by beautiful clouds.

When the storm seems to
overpower you, hold tight,

Any Amount

A L O H A From Honolulu!

May the stars
carry your sadness away,
May the flowers
fill your heart with beauty,

May hope forever
wipe away your tears,
And, above all, may silence
make you strong.

things you photograph,
you feel them.

No amount of anxiety
changes the future.
Any amount of gratitude
changes the present.
