we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.”

“A journey is like marriage.
The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.”

“No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel
until he comes home
and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.” –

Thank YOU, Bloggers
for taking my far-seeking mind
winging around this world
to land in your own distinct neighborhoods.

You show me real life
that tourists never meet.
For I live in the Shangri la
of Hawaii's magic realm:
and fear that-
should I leave-
some rift in reality,
financial collapse,
could prevent my homecoming;

So I remain here.
And should the cleft
of sky & sea
heal over,
I'll be safely here:
Sealed in Island intimacy.

Thanks EACH of You
for showing me
a world apart
of hearts
that are close.
A L O H A, Cloudia
