Walking Waikiki Together

A  L  O  H  A    from   Honolulu!
" Relationships are 
never chance events. "
                             Keith Ablow

 " That awe, wonder and beauty 
promote healthier levels of
[ immune-boosting anti-inflammatory ]
cytokines suggests that
the things we do 
to experience these emotions

- taking a walk in nature,
losing oneself in music,
beholding art-

have a direct influence
upon health and 
life expectancy. "
                     Dacher Keltner,

" For a long time 
I have been of the opinion
 that artists don't necessarily
 know what they're doing. 
You don't necessarily know 
what kind of universal concept 
you're tapping into." 
                                  Leonard Nimoy


Finding Awe,
& beauty in our
has a pro-health
on us sharers.

Thanks for playing
Your special part!

                   Warmly, cloudia

I think it's true that looking at great art, scenery, or photographs gives us us a different perspective that may affect our immune system indirectly. Anything that induces reflectiveness should. Great pictures and quotes! And Pixie is a beauty!

Teresa said...

I totally agree. Your beautiful blog always makes me feel healthier!

TexWisGirl said...

yes, we need the natural and man-made arts.

Aloha Cloudia, Oh yes, so true this is, and another for me is the ever pleasing campfire, the glowing pile of embers ignite such peace and of course, the perfect roasted marshmallow.

Charles Gramlich said...
