Friday Sky Day


Come Inside, Friend-

"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful,
 we must carry it with us or we find it not."


 “Looking back
 you realize that a very special person
 passed briefly through your life-
 and it was you.
 It is not too late to find that person again.”

 Robert Brault 

"Nature gives you the face you have at twenty;
 it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty." 
Coco Chanel 


      Jesus, Buddha,

didn't leave us
thick policy & procedure manuals.

They shared a few basic principles,
deceptive in their
simplicity. . .


We had heavy rain
and rumbling thunder
last night while we slept.

The first winter storm
 rolled in from sea
and down the island chain
cutting off our brisk
Northeast Trades.

Volcanic smog,
creeps towards us
from the Big Island
to the south east.
But it will not wreath us for long.

For many years
as I have grown older
magical Christmas Season
has receded to the weeks
around New Year.

But we must need a little of that
spirit right now,
or perhaps I'm living closer
to the love & fellowship
of the season
all year long?

Whatever the cause,
a Hanukkah glow,
 Diwali lights,
and Thanksgiving gratitude
are reflected everywhere
around me.

So share the spirit with me
if you wish.

Here is your first present:

          Thank YOU for visiting today, cloudia
