Hawaii Autumn

A    L    O    H    A   !

 “ The face 
is a picture of the
 with the eyes
 as its interpreter. ”

 Marcus Tullius Cicero

  Let's Bless
not judge
one another

" Your success and
 lies in you.
 Resolve to keep
and your 
 and you
 shall form an
 invincible host 
against difficulties. "
Helen Keller


" Whoever
 is winning 
at the moment 
will always seem 
to be 
invincible.  "

George Orwell

“ Art is the child
 of nature
 in whom we trace
 the features
 of the mothers face. ”

 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Mornings are darker,
all around our islands
in September.

The world turns
on it's axis of

Evening comes
soon gentle rains
will herald
island winter;
Sprinkled amidst
sparkling clear skies
and crystal
Trade Winds
that whisper
Alaska Snow
global reaches
of open Sea.

Blooms do leave us,
but are replaced
by others.

Soon the coffee
on Kona's slopes
will blossom
in white
and red cherries.

You can come
and feel our 
marvelous Winter,
but to YOU
it will be
delightful Summer.

Your kind visit adds an irreplaceable element to my day:

You could always go to the KONA groves and steal me a pound of beans and I would be full of joy!

Looooove this post Cloudia, how do you always manage to find the most inspiring quotes. Pixie is such a joy, please show us lots of pictures of her.I hear you about the change of light patterns, your days are getting shorter ours are getting longer, now when I wake at 6am it's starting to get light already, only as little as tree weeks ago it wasn't! Amazing huh! Have a fab weekend Cloudia, chill and relax.
