Summer Wandering Waikiki

A L O H A !

We are all together
 in the canoe.
To move forward,
 we must work

"A business that makes 
nothing but money
 is a poor business."
            Henry Ford

"Whither goest thou, 
 in thy shiny car 
in the night?"
           Jack Kerouac

"Coming together 
is a beginning;
 keeping together 
is progress;
 working together 
is success."
       Henry Ford

"Don't find fault,
 find a remedy."
Henry Ford

"If there is any one secret of success,
 it lies in the ability
 to get the other person's point of view
 and see things
 from that person's angle
 as well as from your own."
Henry Ford

"If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability."
Henry Ford


Today we revisit Waikiki
and this post from the
early days of this blog.
[Saturday, December 4, 2010]
Summer is a good time
to remember and muse.
Where is YOUR mind
Summer Wandering

Mine Is The Morning

A  L  O  H  A !
"Each morning 
we are born again. 
What we do today is 
what matters most."

"The scariest demons 
of darkest night, 
fade in the glory of 
morning's good light."

"Anyone can carry his burden, 
however hard, until nightfall. 
Anyone can do his work, 
however hard, for one day. 
Anyone can live sweetly, 
patiently, lovingly, purely, 
till the sun goes down. 
And this is all 
life really means."
         Robert Louis Stevenson

Every Morning Represent

“And the secret garden 
bloomed and bloomed 
and every morning 
revealed new miracles.” 
                Frances Hodgson Burnett,

" In their highest boughs 
the world rustles, 
their roots rest in infinity; 
but they do not 
lose themselves there, 
they struggle with 
all the force of their lives 
for one thing only: to 
fulfill themselves according 
to their own laws, 

-  to build up their own form,
 to represent themselves. 
Nothing is holier,
 nothing is more exemplary
 than a beautiful, 
strong tree."   
 Hermann Hesse

Represent YOUR Form!


By visiting
this garden
you become
one of it's
Special Beauties
for which
I am grateful.
Thank YOU

with tiny puff ball young,
not that long ago.
Now these adolescents
are growing apace.
They were very far
for my simple camera,
but the sight of them
made me dream;

Flames in the forehead of

Old  Friend
"Dogs come into our lives 
to teach us about 
love and loyalty. 
They depart to 
teach us about loss. 
A new dog never 
replaces an old dog; it 
merely expands the heart. 
If you have loved many dogs, 
your heart is very big."
               Erica Jong

when the silence between 
two people is comfortable."

Be led by the dreams
