Where Go You Today

A  L  O  H  A !
Where go You 


To Work?

To Play?

You can have
 a bent bumper,
be handicapped,
but still put confetti
on your car!

“ People of our time 
are losing the power 
of celebration. 
Instead of celebrating 
we seek to be amused 
or entertained. 
Celebration is an active state, 
an act of 
expressing reverence 
or appreciation. . . "
                         Abraham Joshua Heschel

Thank You,

Flow Me

A  L  O  H  A !

Let it Flow

To Me. . . 

Let it Flow

Through Me. . . 

Let Me Flow

Let Me Be



I’ve learned … 
That love means 
'to let be', 
not 'to fix and improve'.

I’ve learned … 
That when we love, 
it heals.

I’ve learned … 
That the best classroom 
in the world is the present 

I have learned...
With You!

Historic Reflections

A  L  O  H  A !
Hawaii's Radiant Nature finds it's way even into dark places

" Their hope is 
not to be condemned 
to live in loneliness, 
excluded from one of 
civilization's oldest institutions, 
They ask for equal dignity
 in the eyes of the law. 
The [USA]Constitution 
grants them that right. "

Of Wall People

A  L  O  H  A !
What am I seeing?
People on the wall ahead,
as seen from above;
Or Something. . .

A Spooky Effect in Broad Sunlight

“Bodies lay in the sun. 

Bodies stood in the sun.” 

                                N.J. Hallard

Weird quote, but strangely fitting,
don't you think?

Click to see these 
properly oriented workers.
how you use a wall!

Is a wall, 
merely a heavy fence?
Is a fence just a barrier
you can carry?

" Pick Up Your Fence - 
and WALK! "

“ Dance like there’s 
nobody watching. 
Or filming. Never mind
 that creepy guy 
in the corner 
with the camcorder. 
Just keep dancing. ” 
                      Jarod Kintz

" Music expresses 
that which 
cannot be said 
and which cannot 
remain silent. "
                        Victor Hugo

" Sometimes
 things fall apart, 
so better things
 can fall together. "
                           Marilyn Monroe 

Just A Peace of the Rainbow

" Knowing when to 
keep your mouth shut
 is invariably more important
 than opening it 
at the right time. "
                       Malcolm Forbes

Rainbow BELOW

" An authentically empowered 
person is humble.
This does not mean 
the false humility
of one who stoops 
to be with those 
who are below him or her. -

- It is the inclusiveness of
 one who responds
 to the beauty of each soul.
...It is the harmlessness 
of one who treasures,
and reveres life 
in all its forms. "
                    Gary Zukav 

Thank YOU!
I love our time
             together, cloudia

says a simple thing
in a hard way,
an artist says
a hard thing
in a simple way. "

A gang is where
 a coward goes to hide. ”

to what people say. 
I just watch 
what they do. "
