Fences Today Tomorrow

A  L  O  H  A   from   Honolulu!
Red Ginger Fence

“A joyful life is
 an individual creation
 that cannot be 
copied from a recipe.”  
                                Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

The red flowers should be bigger, right?

" Humble living 
does not diminish. 

It fills. 

Going back to 
a simpler self 
gives wisdom. "

This fence is just a place to stand

“Look up, laugh loud, 
talk big, keep the 
color in your cheek 
and the fire 
in your eye, 
adorn your person, 
maintain your health, your 
beauty and your animal spirits.”
                             William Hazlitt 1778-1830

" Grandmother, 
as she gets older,
 is not fading but
 rather becoming 
more concentrated. "
                        Paulette Bates Alden

Thank You
