A L O H A !

Click on the photos-
Look into the eyes of the dogs
" The most miserable possession
a man can have
is the thing he hurt someone else
to get. "

Frank A. Clark

" Anybody
who keeps the ability to see beauty
never grows old. "


"It all happened SO FAST! "

" Where did you get the idea,
the notion, 
that you needed permission
to walk in your own
chosen way? "

Mark Durfee

it's the butt end of the year.

Take a deep draw-

Then let out a long, slow,
reflective exhale.

In the haze:
 all the 
people, incidents,
of the year,
churn like

Resting up from Christmas,
saving ourselves
for the duty of excess
that IS
New Year's Eve.

Isn't this 
an irresistible promontory 
upon which to pause?
To take in the view
alone for a moment
under skies about to
turn -

The grand finality 
of it all,
must be
the reason why
we drink,
and dress,
and dance

I'm SO glad 
that you and I
can meet
for play dates like this!

Enjoy this butt end-
just please don't burn
your finger tips.
