“I believe that there is 
luminosity hiding in the 
shadow of the mundane. -

-And things that hover 
at the periphery of 
our vision. If that’s 
magic, then I 
believe in it.”
                 Natasha Mostert

“I try to live in the 
luminosity of things.” 
    Meia Geddes


"Let YOUr Light Shine.
How many times
we have heard that.

As if it were easy,
as if it were natural.
Which strangely
it becomes
but only after 
the hard parts.

And the hard parts
are all through life.
Their faces and fears
do change. But
fortunately so do we.

So keep on trying,
successively approximating,
that's the glory in the LUX:
While freely given,
we must freely share it,
often with obstacles
and fears in the mix.

So here's to YOU,
Light Bringer.

Thank YOU
for shining -

Heron Isle In Golden Time

A  L  O  H  A !
Where do the Great White Heron Go?
During takeoff we see the S neck
retracting to flight-tight position.

At end of day, in Golden Time
the isle across the lagoon
shows her white spots
mellowing by the minute
to rose gold.

This is Heron Island if you please!
Though an Egret or two,
white doves who flew,
may keep up the theme
soon to be a rabid Meme!

"Welcome to Heron Isle!"

Spots on the beach
are going for fifty thousand!
Not just any feathered clown may land
only the brothers and sisters in white
flush with many fish and 
hours of day-lit flight.

Welcome to Heron Isle!

 "Away from the tumult 
of motor and mill
I want to be care-free; 
I want to be still!

- I'm weary of doing things; 
weary of words
I want to be one 
with the blossoms
and birds."
      Edgar A. Guest

For Your Skin

A  L  O  H  A !
 "We have to slow down 
and deal with what 
is troubling us, so that 
we can enjoy the 
simple joy of being
 happy and at peace 
with ourselves.” 
       Jess C. Scott

“There is a perfection 
in everything that 
cannot be owned.” 
    AnaΓ―s Nin

"There are people who 
would love to have 
your bad days." 

Do you have dry skin, like me?
Eczema?  Itching?
You may get relief
from Kukui Nut Oil

Kukui nut oil is
pressed from the
 kukui nut(or candlenut)tree.
Full of essential fatty acids,
 vitamins and antioxidants,
 it has been used for centuries
by Hawaiians to protect
babies, improve dry skin, 
and to heal wounds.
[It is a miracle for 
hemorrhoid itching]

Accompanying Polynesian voyagers 
to the islands, the Kukui tree 
has always had spiritual 
significance to Hawaiians.

The Kukui nut was 
burned for light,
and so has qualities 
of light,
knowledge, wisdom.

Lei of Kukui Nut
like large black beads, 
are still seen in 
the islands.

"Ku'i 'ia ke kukui 
pili ke aloha
Pili ke aloha
 kau maila e
Kukui aloha o
 Kohala e.

Connect with light,
Connect with love,
The love and light
of Kohala."
Hawaiian Wisdom Saying

Novato A Country Town

A  L  O  H  A !
Mural Detail, Reichert Ave; Novato CA
[All Below As Well]

“Earth provides enough to 
satisfy every man's needs, 
but not every man's greed.” 
       Mahatma Gandhi

Farms, Novato Creek, Water Birds. We all want to be in the carriage

“Don't think of yourself 
as a surrogate mule, 
think of yourself as an 
entrepreneur of the physical.” 
          George Saunders

“Shoving feathers up your butt 
does not make you a chicken.” 
        Brad Pitt

'Do I look as cute & fluffy as you?"
“This is what a place like 
this does to you. It
 makes you put words
 in the beaks of chickens.” 
                  Danielle Paige

“It was incomprehensible to 
Ricky that anyone could find 
Milburn boring: if you watched 
it closely for seventy years, 
you saw the century at work.” 
            Peter Straub

And so with Novato. One feels part
of the history of such a place.
From the first inhabitants,
to the Spanish, Sir Francis Drake,
all the Pioneers, Founders, 
Farmers, Road & Bridge Builders. 
They built a town.
