Flowers, Ships, Dancing Skies

A   L   O   H   A !
" Treasure the love 
you receive 
above all. 
It will survive 
long after your gold 
and good health 
have vanished. "

Og Mandino

" If you reveal your secrets 
to the wind 
you should not blame 
the wind 
for revealing them 
to the trees. "

Kahlil Gibran

Docked at the Foot of Nu`uanu Avenue

" The aim of art 
is to represent
the outward appearance 
of things, 
but their 
inward significance. "


Grand Jete` [See It?]

" Each time 
I undertake to paint
 a picture
 I have a sensation 
of leaping
 into space. "

Pablo Picasso

I like the Picasso quote. Guess I feel a bit like that when I start a story.

I can smell the perfect plumeria, and I'm jumping into space. Why didn't someone tell me that good memories become stronger, making a really happy heart? Almost as paralyzing as grief. What a grand change for taking a chance!
