Never A Place

A  L  O  H  A !
When the world is at your back, 
and your heart is at your feet, 
the best way to go is to just be.
    Jennifer Megan Varnadore











Learning how to love is the goal 
and the purpose of spiritual life—
not learning how to develop psychic powers, not learning how to bow, chant, do yoga,
or even meditate, but learning to love.
Lama Surya Das








One's destination is never a place,
but a new way of seeing things.
               Henry Miller

Blue Skies

A  L  O  H  A !
Life is a voyage
best made by 
paddling together.
Our Differences
are ever at war 
with our Commonalities. 
Be careful which you feed.














Calmness is a superpower. 
The ability to not overreact or 
take things personally
is real power.

looking within, I discover peace

And Refresh

A  L  O  H  A !
Take A Deep Breathe.
Exhale through your nose.
Repeat 2 more times.














Drinking With Young Elvis in Waikiki

How Times Have Changed:

"Chad Gates [Elvis]:
You know what you need? 
A good old-fashioned spanking.

Ellie Corbett:
M-Maybe I do. Nobody ever cared enough 
about me. Even for that.

Chad Gates:
Alright, Eleanor. I better prove that somebody 
does care. [He pulls her over his lap]

Ellie Corbett:
You wouldn't dare.

Chad Gates:
Oh wouldn't I dare? Wouldn't I? [He spanks her, and Ellie begins to cry out] I got a feeling that this is gonna make both of us an awful lot better."

No Boundary

Shine For Ever More

A  L  O  H  A !
This evening is as brief as 
the twinkling of an eye yet 
such twinklings are what 
eternity is made of-









- moments when we human beings 
can say "I love you," "I'm proud of you," 
"I forgive you," "I'm grateful for you." 
That's what eternity is made of: 
invisible imperishable good stuff.
        Fred Rogers















There is no death. 
The stars go down to rise 
upon some other shore. And 
bright in Heaven's jeweled crown, 
they shine for ever more.
             John Luckey Mccreery

Wise Cat

A  L  H  A !
It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. 
I am strongly in favor of common sense, 
common honesty, and common decency.
This makes me forever ineligible 
for public office.
    H. L. Mencken














Examine what is said, 
not him who speaks.
   Arab Proverb










Pause.

Breathe.

3 Deep Grateful Breaths.

Repeat

throughout the day!










Night, when words 
fade and 
things come alive. 
When the destructive 
analysis of day is done, 
and all that is 
truly important 
becomes whole 
and sound again. 
When man reassembles 
his fragmentary self 
and grows 
with the calm of a tree.
     Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
