Waikiki Smiles

A   L  O  H  A !
 Click to Enlarge Wonderful Smile!

" A smile
 will gain you
 ten more years 
of life. "
             Chinese Proverb

Hawaii People are 

Why does this man at work
look happier
than the visitors on holiday

“ Over all crowds 
there seems to float a 
vague distress, 
an atmosphere of 
pervasive melancholy. . . "
                                   Émile Zola, 
                                         The Attack on the Mill and Other Stories

The distance between us
 shouldn't matter
at the end of the day, 
we're all 
under the same sky....

Sometimes when I am
among others
I reflect on the 
of this delusion
that we are


Thank YOU
for visiting
          Fondly, cloudia

I visited Hawaii twice.

A LONG plane ride from the East Coast (and even longer back!).

But I was always smiling when I was there.

I don't see how anyone could look at that smile and not smile right back. Even half a world away at a screen...

The visitors know they have to leave paradise sooner or later. The driver knows he lives in paradise.
