Sneeze the Day!

A L O H A
& Welcome to Hawaii


If you wish to be considered a great conversationalist, 
just ask others about themselves
and actually listen
without interrupting.








"Being deeply loved by someone
gives you strength,
 while loving someone deeply
gives you courage."

Lao Tzu






"Always kiss your children goodnight,
even if they're already asleep."

H. Jackson Brown, Jr.










"A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile
 the moment a single man contemplates it
 bearing within him the image of a cathedral."

Antoine de Saint-Exupery








“Remember
there's no such thing
as a small act of kindness.
Every act creates a ripple
with no logical end.”

 Scott Adams

I reckon interrupting a person while speaking is bad manners even worse not listening and understanding what's being said. I like the unusual rock formation looks like the entrance to paradise :-).

I needed every bit of that--especially the words of Lao Tzu. Thank you for being spot on at the exact right time!

So ending a long conversation with "Enough about me. What do you think about me" is a bad thing? :P
