A L O H A !
Fresh Start

" Sunshine is delicious,
 rain is refreshing, 
wind braces us up, 
snow is exhilarating;
 there is really no such thing 
as bad weather,
 only different kinds 
of good weather. "
           John Ruskin

So Much Wonder

" We need a renaissance 
of wonder. 
We need to renew, 
in our hearts 
and in our souls, 
the deathless dream, 
the eternal poetry, 
the perennial 
sense that life  
is miracle and magic. "

E. Merrill Root 

Sparkling Promise

“The air was soft,
 the stars so fine, 
the promise of 
every cobbled alley 
so great that 
I thought I 
was in a dream.”
                    Jack Kerouac


What if . . . 
You woke up 
with only
what you were
grateful for

Thank you Sun,
Thank you breath,
Thank you Pixie-cat
and coffee!

Thank YOU
for sharing
here with us.
Where it's a 
party every day;

And the regulars
are the nicest people
all over the globe.

Peace OUT!

Wishing YOU
your heart's content.
Hope to see You
