Lovely Ladies of Hula

" There is no duty 

so underrated as the

 duty of being happy.

By being happy we 

sow anonymous benefits 

upon the world. "

Robert Louis Stevenson

Morning Still Life - Waikiki

" We either make ourselves

 miserable, or 

we make ourselves 


The amount of work

 is the same. "

                         Carlos Castaneda
which in NO way invalidates
depression, pain, anxiety
as somehow chosen.

" Everyone should 

carefully observe 

which way the heart draws, 

and then 

choose that way 

with all strength. "


" Escape "

" Luxury Must Be


Otherwise it is Not

Luxury. "

Coco Chanel


Thank You Friends,

Aloha pretty lady, woman of many lovely thoughts, just for all of us. Happy is as happy we feel. I vote for more, a constant flow for all.

Definitely a leaping dolphin Cloudia, I see it clearly. Everyday life is beautifully vibrant in your town :)

I've found that making oneself happy requires work. I seldom make myself miserable. That just comes with the world.

The lovely ladies of hula are dressed so beautifully and elegantly. It would be a wonderful sight to see them dance!

Aloha! And a great day for you, Cloudia!

Yep, I like to goof off and do as little manual labor or cooking as possible when on vacation. The word "vacate" means vacating responsibilities. DrumMajor

I love those yellow skirts. The quote that we owe it to the world to be happy is something to think about.
