Fueled by Kindness

A L O H A From Honolulu!

No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn. Hal Borland

Defiance that fuels division
only feeds the fire.
Defiance fueled by kindness
builds bridges and sparks healing.
Iyanla Vanzant

The baker's grin,
the poet's sigh,
The warrior's scar,
the dreamer's eye. The queen's disdain,
the jester's leer, A tower of faces,
calling us near.

Mosaic of moods,
and clash of desires,
Fueling the world
from deep hidden fires.
Though faces may differ,
and stories may stray, Together we build, up
this grand, human play.

There wouldn't be a sky full of stars if we were all meant to wish on the same one. Frances Clark  


Love You,

Defiant Kindness

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Defiant kindness
doesn't ignore injustice, it
chooses compassion as its weapon.
It disrupts with love, challenges
with empathy, and fights
for change with grace.

The light at the
end of the tunnel is not
an illusion, the tunnel is.
Anna Quindlen

God put each person
here for a purpose. Ronald Reagan

The world needs your kindness,
even when it seems like
it doesn't deserve it.
Choose love, even
when it's hard.
Be the light, even
when it's dark.

True kindness isn't passive;
it's a fierce, unwavering
commitment to doing what's
right, even when it's hard.
Amanda Palmer

Beacon Lights

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Smile, it is the key
that fits the lock
of everyone's heart. Anthony J. D'Angelo 

  Like the hummingbird      
sipping nectar from every flower, 
  I fly joyfully through my days, 
   seeing beauty in everything.  

 Amethyst Wyldfyre 

A smile confuses
an approaching frown.


Each smile a star, a beacon light, convivial warmth this tropic night. Lei-clad hearts, forever bound, Memories made, friendships crowned

Laughter rings, joyful chime, Friends are gathered,
transcending time.
Sun dips low, a fiery sigh, As stars ignite the deepening sky.

People say nothing is impossible,
but I do nothing every day.
Winnie the Pooh


Love You,

Inexhaustible A Moment At A Time

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Dreams are like stars.
You may never
touch them,
but if you follow them
they will lead you
to your destiny.
Liam James

Dogs live in the moment
and don't dwell on the past,
which is why they are
always so happy.
   Brigitte Bardot

Perhaps our planet is for
learning to appreciate the
extraordinary wonder of life that
surrounds even our suffering,
and to say Yes, if through the
thickest of tears.
  Zora Neale Hurston

The sun, a molten cymbal 
Beats rhythm on the clouds, 
twilight drummer heartbeat
welcomes in the evening crowds. 

An inexhaustible good nature is
one of the most
precious gifts of heaven,
spreading itself like oil
over the troubled sea of thought,
keeping the mind smooth and
equable in the roughest weather.
Washington Irving 

Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

Something Better

A L O H A From Honolulu!

In realms unseen,
on emerald leaves, Where sunlight strains
through dappled weaves,
Upon a petal, clean and bright, Tiny dancers rest from flight.
Until they leave with wings unfurled,
Intrepid folk of nature's world. Some giants scoff,
"A speck, no more!" But scoffing hearts
are often sore.
So spread your wings,
wee insect friend, And dance among
the blooms, again! Small or large,
beneath the sky, We all share life,
and yearn to fly.

Hae Hawaii (Hawaiian Flag) and a Party Lei in Window Light

Remember, the best way
to resist darkness is to
shine your own light.
Be the kindness that
defies negativity.
     Mattie Stepanek

Judge no one,
it's a waste of time.
Just improve yourself.

Kindness is not weakness.
It's a superpower to break
the chains of anger and
build something better.
Rachel Joy Scott

Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

Fresh Every Hour

A L O H A From Honolulu!

The scariest demons
of darkest night,
fade in the glory
of morning's 
good light. 

A silhouette that caught my eye,
Dancer frozen in mid-flight,
Splash of color, held so high,
Sidelong glimpse in luscious light.

Keeping Calm, taking a beat, is a radically important act!

Lasting Happiness like wonderful, warm donuts, must be made fresh every hour.
Keep Baking!

When we are together,
I can see Heaven
from here!


Love You,
