Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams

- And dream your troubles away
  Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams by Frank Sinatra on Grooveshark
A L O H A !
" If you look around, 
you can find a face of God
 in each thing, because 
He is not hidden
 in a church, in a mosque,
 or a synagogue, 
but everywhere. . .
Who finds Him, 
stays forever with him. "

 Shams Tabrizi

Hawaii State Library LINK
Opened February 1, 1913,Territory of Hawaii

A "Carnegie Library"

In 1841, 
life expectancy at birth 
was 40 years for males 
and 42 years for females.

By 1900 it was 
52 and 57.

Today it is 79 and 83. 

So many things change with time.

"Starting today, 
starting now,
those who have been 
will be visible to themselves 
and to others. "

Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie
Upon signing Marriage Equality in our Island State, yesterday
13 November 2013

Now that I am not at the legislature every day
I hope to visit EACH of YOU!

Hurray for marriage equality!

Cloudia said...

You each bring such joy here! Am deeply grateful. You make my day! ♥

Love those quotes, Cloudia. I do think some people forget who God really is and where you can find him. I think I heard somewhere that because of junk food life expectancy was now going down. And yes! I was so happy about the gay marriage bill. In fact I was getting my hair cut by a wonderful, gorgeous, gay fellow yesterday and it was great to celebrate with him.

The celebration is wonderful news! Party for a long time, not just one day.
Yes, many places in Hawaii are better than any church service: the warm perfumed air from all of the naturally growing flowers, and sunrise above the cloud-line at Haleakala, and looking up from a beach surrounded by the cathedral walls of the rising mountains. Aloha, DrumMajor

Neverstop dreaming.

I love the first quote. It's so true. You don't need to go to a church/temple to find the presence of God. He is all around us :)

Teresa said...
