Just A Beggar Near The Gate

 A L O H A From Honolulu!
You're going along.
You're doing emotionally great.
Then a tiny thought or anxiety
presents itself at the gate.

Stay calm.

Don't be like the elephant
that runs up a tree because it's
cartoonishly afraid of a mouse.



                            *
Reframe
how you feel about that
tiny negative thought.
Perhaps it is only come to press its nose
up against the window of your party.

Perhaps it is showing itself to
remind you of the importance
of the great mood you're in,
Reminding you to stay
in your higher vibration,
of how far
you have grown.



None of this by force,
but by CHOICE:
the most powerful thing
in the universe.

That little negative thought is
asking you if you want to play.

Don't engage, don't get upset,
thank it for the invitation
and send it on its
way with love.








A cheerful frame of mind,
reinforced by relaxation...
is the medicine that puts
all ghosts of fear on the run.
  George Matthew Adams

Aloha from Hawaii via Satellite
was a concert starring Elvis Presley that took place at the Honolulu International Center* and was broadcast live via satellite to audiences in Asia and Oceania on January 14, 1973. The show was presented with a delay in Europe. In the United States, to avoid a programming conflict with Super Bowl VII and Elvis on Tour which was playing in cinemas at the time, NBC opted to air a ninety-minute television special on the concert airing on April 4.

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Only a select few

true beauty that lies behind
what just might seem like
a rainy day or a grey sky.

fear the fall, or
enjoy the view.

Belong To Us As Well

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Keep those who believe 
in you closer.

Appreciation is a
wonderful thing: It
makes what is excellent
in others belong
to us as well. 
   Voltaire







We can feel Truth,
but we can't know it
the way we know the
things before our eyes.

 But little by little,
insight and inspiration
prove to be more true
than what we do see
with our eyes.

To See It All

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Frank C. Judd Mini Park Link

The rule is you have to dance
a little bit in the morning
before you leave the house
because it changes the way
you walk out in the world.
    Sandra Bullock





Yes, I'm in a hurry, I'm rushing to live with the intensity that only maturity can give. I don't mean to waste any of the leftover sweets. I'm sure these will be delicious, a lot more than the ones I've eaten so far...





...My goal is to reach a satisfied
and peaceful end with my
loved ones and my conscience.
We have two lives and the
second one starts when you
realize you only have one.
    Mario of Andrade

the people you love.

and love them
is enough.

Today's photos were shot with my new camera: Google's Pixel 6 Pro Phone.

"The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have the same main wide-angle cameras and ultrawide cameras. The Pro adds a 4x telephoto lens. In traditional camera lens terms, they have focal length equivalents of 16mm, 25mm and 104mm, said Alex Schiffhauer, the Pixel product manager who oversees hardware. That's 0.7x, 1x and 4x in the camera interface." cnet Link







Proximity and closeness
are not the same.

Sunshine Granted

A L O H A From Honolulu!

I only deepen the
wound of the world when
I neglect to give thanks
for early light dappled
through leaves...
  the rain that falls and
all the good things -
  Ann Voskamp










 The most liberating thing
about beauty is realizing
you are the beholder.
Salma Hayek












Reflection of a Tail
Anything can be taken
out of context and
anything you say or do
is not necessarily
an accurate reflection of
who you are in your totality.
Sam Levinson




On this day in 2017, Pixie wanted to
come into the warm N. Calif. house!
Neither of us will EVER
take the SUNSHINE
for granted!
