A Moment in Unison

A  L  O  H  A !
'Imi au la 'Oe instrumental by Keola Beamer on Grooveshark
 " The dream 

was always running 

ahead of me. 

To catch up,

 to live for a moment

 in unison with it,

 that was the miracle. "

Anais Nin

" If a man insisted 

always on being serious, 

and never allowed himself

 a bit of fun and relaxation,

 he would go mad 

or become unstable 

without knowing it."


" We ought to see

 far enough into a hypocrite

 to see even his 

sincerity. "


" Despise not any man, 

and do not spurn anything;

 for there is no man 

who has not his hour, 

nor is there anything 

that has not its place. "

Ben Azai

Thank YOU
for making this place
OUR place!  
                          Warmly, cloudia

the hypocrite one is interesting.

Ah yes, I'm thinking we're all "seriously silly" around here, and that's a wonderful way to be. I'm a fan of Anais Nin and Henry and June is one of my favorite movies still to watch.

The photos of the flowers seem to be the thinning petals of the shower tree blooms, maybe? DrumMajor

I sure appreciate this post as loved ones begin to make some strange moves that leave us wondering where they've been all the time they've been right here. Thanks for sharing the wisdom, my friend.

Is that Paul McCartney carrying a surf board ?


"A person who takes him/herself seriously is usually not taken seriously by others."

Wise words; lovely photos.

So gorgeous, Cloudia. I can't believe it's already going to be Thursday. And I agree with Herodotus.
