Wheels and Wings

OR: "All Over the Map"
A L  O  H  A !
   Two Wheels / One Board 
   A surfboard is to waves   
  as wings are to wind. 

" In matters of conscience,
 the law of majority 
has no place. "

Mahatma Gandhi

 Even vintage "Woody" carries a surf board

"You must not think me 
necessarily foolish 
because I am facetious,
 nor will I consider
 you necessarily 
wise because 
you are grave."

        Sydney Smith

 Dis blah no mo suff boad
 ( "This brother has no surfboard" )

Waikiki HAS opportunities for folks of different
ability levels to surf:

"I discovered early that the hardest thing to overcome is not a physical disability but the mental condition which it induces. The world, I found, has a way of taking a man pretty much at his own rating. If he permits his loss to make him embarrassed and apologetic, he will draw embarrassment from others. But if he gains his own respect, the respect of those around him comes easily." 

 Alexander de Seversky

"Disability is not a brave struggle
 or ‘courage
 in the face of adversity.’ 
Disability is an art. 
It’s an ingenious way
 to live." 

Neil Marcus

 "You know who you are"

 Ah, the Parrot Guy and his working birds. 
He covers you in birds,
the birds squawk and pose
while he, or your pals
snap pics for your
You pay him.

 Wings of the Islands

Inter-Island Airways incorporated
 30th of January, 1929
with one aircraft: 
a Bellanca CH-300 Pacemaker
(That still flies! LINK)
 providing sightseeing flights of Honolulu,
 Diamond Head, the cliffs, fields, coasts of O'ahu.
Hawaiian Air Lines
 has come a LONG way! Flying 
not only our Hawaii,
but mainland and foreign destinations as well.
HAL ALWAYS tops the "On Time" Stats!
If you go to Pago Pago 
you will enjoy HAL.
And if you have the option,
perhaps to Japan,
TAKE it. 
Inside the plane
is Hawaiian territory.

" The sincere friends 

of this world

 are as ship lights

 in the stormiest

 of nights. "
