Real Feel-Good

Aloha, Friend!

Click on the crater
Diamond Head,
the way WE see it.

“We are all visitors to this time, this place.

We are just passing through.

Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love...

and then we return home.”

Australian Aboriginal Proverb


"We are supposed to be
the messengers of peace for humanity."


Smiling Buddha Goes for a Ride

"It is better to travel well than to arrive."



Researchers as the University of Wisconsin
conducted an experiment with girls ages 7 to 12
in which they exposed the girls to the stress of speaking
to a group of strangers.
Afterward, a third of the girls were hugged by their mothers,
a third spoke to mom on the phone,
and a third watched a film.
While measured stress rose in the movie watchers,
the stress in both other groups
dropped equally.
"That a simple phone call
could have this physiological effect on oxytocin
is really exciting."
Co-investigator Seth Pollak told Scientific American.

Your visits make me feel wonderful,
and that's a scientific FACT!

Happy Weekend,
