 A L O H A !

"Summer is the time
 when one sheds one's tensions
 with one's clothes,
 and the right kind of day
 is jeweled balm for the battered spirit.

 A few of those days
 and you can become drunk with the belief
 that all's right with the world."

Ada Louise Huxtable

" kisses are a better fate
than wisdom. "

e.e. cummings

" Oh!
 I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies
 on laughter-silvered wings "

John Gillespie Magee, Jr.

"In every outthrust headland, 
in every curving beach,
 in every grain of sand
 there is the story of the earth"

--Rachel Carson

I can bless you
without a glance,
passing on the street
or the web
just like a curse
in reverse.

Energy is neither
nor destroyed;
We always pass it on
adding our own scent.

No intention
misses it's mark.

Bless YOU


Pass it on-

       warmly, cloudia

The sublime state of silence is sought by many, captured by few, for most forget to be quiet during the hunt.

Blessings to you, too, Cloudia. We all have it within us to make or break someone's day (including our own) - this post made mine. Thank you for that.

I wish, tied down like a serf right now doing yard work. Thinking of starting a Revolution.

I love sitting outside, or going out in my jammies with coffee, weeding with the kittens to help me, with no one watching me, my big body and having privacy.
There's something for having 16 acres of wetland!!!!
Aloha from Perth, dear sister.
