"Trying to be happy by 
accumulating possessions is 
like trying to satisfy hunger 
by taping sandwiches 
all over your body."
           George Carlin

"We look before and after, 
And pine for what is not; 
Our sincerest laughter 
With some pain is fraught; 
Our sweetest songs are those 
That tell of saddest thought."

you are no longer 
where you were; 

-you are not yet 
you will get; 
you are 
nowhere exactly.”

from exploration
And the end of 
all our exploring
Will be to arrive 
where we started
And know the place 
for the first time.”

A Big Word

A  L  O  H  A !
" If you can't be 
thankful for 
what you have, 
be thankful for what 
you have escaped. ” 
                    John Wayne

These Sea Turtles Inhabit a Construction Fence

Gratitude is
a big word for 
realizing how
you are
in so many ways
right here - right now

starts as
an idea -

But if it takes root,
gratitude becomes
the texture of
a happy life

Day's Haze

A  L  O  H  A !
Dawn, N. Calif
"Yellow, mellow, ripened days, 
Sheltered in a golden coating; 
O'er the dreamy, listless haze, 
White and dainty 
cloudlets floating. . ."

mother-tongue of 
the human race."

"Than smoke and mist 
who better could appraise
The kindred spirit 
of an inner haze?"

"The farther reason looks 
the greater is the haze 
in which it loses itself."

I confess to cultivating
a haze. . .
