Love Train, Yo!

glad YOU came :-)

Nature is Beautiful. . . 
subtle. . .

"A very subtle difference
 can make the picture or not."

Annie Leibovitz 

Rich in Color & light. . . 

"In the beginning there was nothing.
 God said, 'Let there be light!'
 And there was light.
 There was still nothing,
 but you could see it a whole lot better. "

Ellen DeGeneres 

But without people & creatures. . . .
 Ultimately it feels empty-

Play the song, Yo!

While you see the REAL treasure:

What a performer!

Hawaii-born Local Guy, Bruno Mars,
 was a Grammy nominee in six categories including: Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Producer of the Year (Non-Classical), Best Rap Song,
 and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.

Named the winner in the Best Male Pop Vocal" category  for his song “Just the Way You Are"
Bruno bested  Michael Buble,
 John Mayer,
 Adam Lambert and even
 the late Michael Jackson!

 Bette Midler was the last artist
 with Hawaii ties to win the
Best New Artist Grammy in 1973.

Back when I was driving a taxi here in Honolulu,
Bruno was performing almost every night
in Waikiki as 
"World's Smallest Elvis Impersonator."

In the spirit of fun,
and "look how far he's come"
here's a clip from a Hollywood
film featuring such a performance:
(and say, why not scroll down
all the way to the cover picture of
my little "taxi novel"
and check it out at Amazon
with a 'click')

and now, let the embarrassment begin!
