A L O H A !

 Ala Wai Yacht Harbor, Waikiki

I am still thrilled
 to have moved off of our boat 
after 20 years!
Seems I'm not the only one
 who is happier and healthier 
now that I'm living in roomier digs.

Check out my neighbors
in the short video below:

Thanks for looking in!

I Saw an Angel

 A  L  O  H  A !

When I was little -

 " In every real man
 a child is hidden
 that wants to play. "

Friedrich Nietzsche

"  The great man is he 
who does not lose 
his child's-heart.  "


" You're never too old to do goofy stuff.  "

From the television show Leave it to Beaver
spoken by the character Ward Cleaver

" So, like a forgotten fire, 
a childhood can always
 flare up again
 within us.  "

Gaston Bachelard

I Saw an ANGEL:

" A child's world
is fresh and new
and beautiful,
full of wonder and excitement.

 It is our misfortune
 that for most of us
 that clear-eyed vision,
 that true instinct for what is beautiful 
and awe-inspiring, 
is dimmed and even lost 
before we reach adulthood. 

If I had influence with the good fairy
 who is supposed to preside
 over the christening of all children,
 I should ask that her gift 
to each child in the world 
be a sense of wonder so indestructible
 that it would last throughout life, 
as an unfailing antidote 
against the boredom and disenchantment 
of later year…the alienation
 from the sources of our strength.”

Rachel Carson,
  The Sense of Wonder

Thanks for visiting today!
