Playing My Bamboo Flute for YOU

A  L  O  H  A !

“In the end 
we shall have had 
enough of cynicism, 
 and humbug,
 and we shall 
want to live 
more musically.” 
                                        Vincent van Gogh


The Trade Winds 
have returned
and life in the islands
feels delicious again.
Perfect weather for
 bamboo flute playing

Thank YOU 
for listening!
                     Warmly, cloudia

Come Ride With Me

A L O H A 
Where You Like GO?
Look! My old number, Puka 9 
- from my immigrant days 
driving taxi here in Honolulu.

[ The book cover to the right there
is a link to my autobiographical
novel about discovering Hawaii
and myself ]

Let's RIDE around a little,

" If everything on earth
 were rational, 
would ever happen. "


Driving into Manoa Valley, Valley of Rainbows

"Walk neither faster 
nor slower 
than your own soul.  
Because it is your soul 
that will teach you 
the usefulness 
of each step 
you take."  
                  Paulo Coelho

Aloha means:
"WE share the Breath of Life!"
So let's share with no expectation

" Faithfulness 
and sincerity 
are the highest things. "


I used to be 
very sensitive to 
exclusion by others,
I' m more focused 
on including everyone
in my Aloha

Makiki Christian Church 1931  

"Whoever does not
 love his work 
cannot hope that
 it will please others."

 Up in the hills, back in the valleys, 
down to the beach:
I chased calls all over the island in my cab.
Sure, I'll take your surf board.

" Never look down 
on anybody 
unless you are 
helping them up "
                          Jesse Jackson

12 hour shift just about PAU 
Time to head back to the yard.
This was day tour. 
Driving at night
was memorable 
and educational.
[The book is largely nocturnal.]


Thank YOU
For Riding Along
Please Stay Come Again!
