"The world is full of magical things
patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper."

Bertrand Russell

"It is strange that the years teach us patience;
that the shorter our time,
the greater our capacity for waiting."

Elizabeth Taylor

"There are times
when even the best manager
is like the little boy with the big dog,
waiting to see where the dog wants to go
so he can take him there. "

Lee Iacocca


Funny how the life I had
growing up
in that big, eastern, mainland city:
walking the city scape,
it's hours, seasons, changes
(and my own)
funny how I'm living
the same way in a new
and different environment.

Nature? Nurture?
It's just the way that I am. . .

As long as there is a sidewalk
preferably, now, by a sea shore,
in view of mountains,
among ever changing shoals
of human interactions,
some cool architecture,
dear greenery,
and street food,
I will be a walker
gentle presence
of dollar bills. . .

Think of me as a "Beach Town Thoreau,"
chronicler of rainbows,
enabler of random Aloha,
direction-giver to visitors.

As such
it is most important for me
to ramble Waikiki
with no destination
but happiness.

I recommend that
YOU try it.
Take your amicability out for a walk.
Bless the world
great & small
with your gaze.

and who is Ivan Osokin?
He is Ouspensky's hero
who, given the chance for a
life do-over
creates exactly the same existance
even with the wisdom
of experience.
Character is destiny.
The only solution
is to adopt the character
you WANT to have!

And thanks for blessing mine
with your friendly attention!
