Thoughts and Smiles of Honolulu

A L O H A !
Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton on Grooveshark
" You have to believe 
in yourself
 when no one
 else does
 that makes you 
a winner 
right there. "
                 Venus Williams

" We live on 
an island
 surrounded by
 a sea of ignorance. "
                       John Archibald Wheeler

always wanted to 
come out onstage
 with a stuffed parrot 
on his shoulder."

Love this mini-vacation I just took to Hawaii!

Aimeecakes said...

A lovely series of portraits! I feel that Eric Clapton should have gone with the parrot idea - Pirates are cool!!

The young woman in the first photo looks depressed. I hope she's just tired, though.

Grand Crapaud said...

I like Venus William's quote.

Birdman said...

Of course there is quite a background story in this Clapton song... the tragic death of his son.

Charles Gramlich said...

Clapton and a stuffed parrot. Sounds like a title.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Haha! Aimee's comment made me smile, she is a pirate at heart :) Lovely series of images and quotes Cloudia.

TexWisGirl said...

like that first quote.

William Kendall said...

The parrot fellow reminds me of a guy here who has several, and features them as something of a busking act in the summer.

Hilary said...

How cool to see those parrots.

I want to come out on stage with a live parrot on my shoulder!

Teresa said...

Great pictures of interesting people and parrots! I like the quote about being on an island surrounded by a sea of ignorance--quite poetic.
