SkyWatch Hawaii

A  L  O  H  A !
" Never be so focused 
on what you're 
looking for 
that you overlook
 the thing 
you actually find. "
                  Ann Patchett 

" Things are not always 
what they seem;
 the first appearance 
deceives many; 
the intelligence of
 a few perceives 
what has been 
carefully hidden. "

" How little do they see
 what really is, 
who frame their 
hasty judgment 
upon that 
which seems. "
                    Daniel Webster

" What we call the 
secret of happiness 
is no more a secret 
than our 
willingness to
 choose life. "
               Leo Buscaglia

Today you gave us food for thought and a feast for the eyes. But that's usually the case. Cloudia, you take the long view and definitely have your act together.

Charles Gramlich said...

That one pic looks like Pac Man in the sky

William Kendall said...

Beautiful shots, and that Daniel Webster quote certainly speaks to me.

Elephant's Child said...

Life? Or an existence? Not a hard decision.

RedPat said...

We must keep our eyes and minds open, Cloudia!

Birdman said...

I'll agree with A. Patchett.. Too much tunnel-vision can fog your quest and make you miss some of the side trips.

Karen Hayward-King said...

Great quotes and lovely shots.:-)

Sometimes what we find is exactly what we need, only we didn't know at first.

DeniseinVA said...

Ah yes, I leave a little wiser thank to you my friend :)

Couture Carrie said...

Awesome pics and quotes! Very thought provoking.


Small Kucing said...

Totally agrees with "Things are not always what they seem"...especially when online like FB and etc. A photo or article may "show" something but we don;t know the real story behind it.

Eg. last month, there was a photo of a cat being strung up on a pole in front of a house. Netizens started condemning the house owner. Later it was discovered that the house owner was threathen by gangsters and the dead cat is a warning. House owner did not take the dead cat down coz he was waiting for the police to come to do the necessary .

Anyway...happy weekend Cloudia
