Autumn Hints Waikiki Edition

A L O H A !
  Autumn in New York by Billie Holiday on Grooveshark
All Nature Heeds Changing Seasonality

" Delicious autumn! 

My very soul is

 wedded to it, 

and if I were a bird

 I would fly about the earth 

seeking the successive

 autumns. "

                          George Eliot

Summer's Overload of Rioting Vitality has Moved On

" Life passes quickly by.  
It seems an art 
to flow with it, 
to accept what it is, 
rather than to fight the tide.  
There is no time 
for the madness. "
                        Sandy Carlson

" In the long run, 
we shape our lives, 
and we shape 
ourselves. "
                       Eleanor Roosevelt


Dare with me
to take a bow
for your

We are too focused
on measuring
how far we have
to go.

 Let's share a moment
to enjoy
the harvests
we've earned.

Hooray for US!
                    Warmly, cloudia

Autumn has its own palette of hues to thrill us. But I'm hoping winter won't be a harsh one.

Cloudia, you are a philosopher of enjoying the moment! Happy first day of autumn.

Let the good times roll!
