Angels Love Bloggers

A L O H A From Honolulu!

A bridge can still be built,
while the bitter waters
are flowing beneath.
Anthony Liccione

A word once let
out of the cage
cannot be whistled
back again.

If you buy
what you don't need,
you steal from

Rockin` Around
Christmas Tree!

Last night I had a
very interesting dream.
Angels came to me
and told me that
they love bloggers!

Because, they said
what every angel does is
share everything they love
with everyone else.
This is their pleasure
and work.

They said that we're already
doing the same thing!

They asked me to
cheer on
each and every
one of you!

Love You,

Knowlege of Self and Other

A L O H A From Honolulu!

When a person doesn't
have gratitude,
something is missing
in his or her humanity.
A person can almost be
defined by his or her
attitude toward gratitude.     
Elie Wiesel

A diamond of a morning
Waked me an hour too soon;
Dawn had taken in the stars
And left the faint white moon. -

- O white moon, you are lonely,
It is the same with me,
But we have the world
to roam over,
Only the lonely are free.
      Sara Teasdale

be hazardous to
your solemnity.

One Two 3 Many

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Each cloud we burst,
each moon we drum,
each sun we dance is an
essential part of the wheel...
The whole is incalculable.

The bird in the hedgerow
was still singing as we marched
out to the roadway, and followed
our merry pipers home to town.

that can heal the heart...
Only one... It's love.

What is really exciting
to me is to see people
with differing views come
together and finally
respect each other.

The person who has
many faults is
usually the first to
criticize others. 
    Korean Proverb

People are dealing too much
with the negative, with
what is wrong. ...
Why not try the other way,
to look into the patient and
see positive things, to
just touch those things
and make them bloom?
Thich Nhat Hanh

Happy Bridge Building

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Bridges are happy,
because they do not judge
those who come to them.
 Mehmet Murat ildan

The bridges that you cross
before you come to them are
over rivers that aren't there.

across rivers.
Leaders take people
across ignorance.

Honolulu 1908

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Never forget that
feeling fantastic is a
massive magnet for
summoning more magic.
  Curtis Tyrone Jones

In 1907, Honolulu High School
was renamed for President William McKinley.
And in 1908 the school was moved to this 
new building facing Thomas Square.

Upon completion of a newer
(and current) facility
further towards Diamond Head on King St,
McKinley HS moved there in 1923.

This building became
Linekona Elementary School.
Linekona is Hawaiian For "Lincoln"
These were Territorial days, and the 
US Territorial government & resident
Americans solidified their cultural and
political connections to the USA.

This is an example of
Romanesque architecture,
Colonial Revival architecture,
Romanesque Revival architecture.
Interestingly, the apparent stone
face is actually cunningly worked

The Road To Success
is dotted with many
tempting parking spaces.

I waved to you outside
but then I realized it
was just one of those
inflatable parking lot gorillas.

the taller it becomes.

or aren't.

Spare Gems

A L O H A From Honolulu!

When the bee comes
to your house,
let her have beer;
you may
want to visit the
bee's house some day. Congo Proverb

In a world like ours,
all we’ve got to be -

- is the warmth of
the morning sun.
Michael Bassey Johnson

The Pacific golden plover is a migratory shorebird that breeds during Alaska and Siberia summers. During nonbreeding season, this medium-sized plover migrates widely across the Pacific. The genus name is derived from pluvia, Latin for “rain.” It was once believed that golden-plovers flocked when rain was imminent. Scientific name: Pluvialis fulva. Wikipedia

In order to see the world clearly,
you must clean the
windows of perception.
The problem is
our society doesn't
do windows.
Dean Lombardi

Guard well your spare moments.
They are like uncut diamonds.
Discard them and their value
will never be known.
Improve them
and they will become
the brightest gems
in a useful life.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

I overthink everything.
I'm very keen there should be
a positive outcome.
I like to control outcomes.
But you can't.
At the end of the day,
for it to be any good,
you have to let go.
I'd like to be better
at this in life. Bertie Carvel
