Walk in Ala Moana Park


Go ahead and click on the photos
Slow Down! This isn't the 'mainland.'

Let's walk in Ala Moana Park
before her parking lots are closed
and become staging areas
for APEC security. . .

Nature is so nurturing, welcoming . . .
SAY! is that tree SNEERING at us?

He's a mean drunk!

" Bacchus, n.: A convenient (nature) deity
invented by the ancients
as an excuse for getting drunk. "
Ambrose Bierce


 " Bacchus hath drowned more men
than Neptune (god of the seas)."

Thomas Fuller

And speaking of seas,

Ala Moana is a beach park.

Outrigger Canoes at Rest


Pupukahi i holomua

" Unite to move forward."

Each Hawaiian in the canoe
has to pull together on the call
for the canoe to move forward,
quickly forward.

 Each canoe has a soul that is awakened
and reawakened
with blessings.

Anyone who talks to their vehicle
 should understand this!

 They all have given names as well

I ka 'olelo no ke ola, i ka 'olelo no ka make.

  " In speech is life, in speech is death."

" Imua means “go forward” in Hawaiian.
Most often said with an  exclamation point:

Red Rovers

These are not Hawaiian Outrigger Canoes.  What?

Ah! Here he is with his head ON.  (At Splendor of China)

" As soon as you trust yourself, 
you will know how to live. "

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe,

Isn't it wonderful
just to walk
in the park
like this?

Thanks for being here today!
