there is a path, although 
it may not be seen 
from the valley. "

colors of the soul; 
they are spectacular

When you don't feel, 
the world becomes 
dull and colorless.”

Luck Pays No Part In That

A  L  O  H  A !
Dreaming of Waikiki Sunsets

Calmness is a superpower. 
The ability to not overreact or 
take things personally

Musing on Marin [Ca] Dusk

Just love others and 
you will worry less 
about what they 
think of you. 

A thrum, a glimpse, and GONE!

When young, if lucky, 
you may have beauty.

 When mature, your beauty 
consists of your demeanor and 
how you treat others. 

Luck plays no part in that.

Remember my Friend:
You can handle What Is
But never tangle 
with What If.

Together Instead

A  L  O  H  A !
 Get lost in love, and 
hate won’t find you.

We all have a core of 
basic goodness, of 
basic Humanity. 
The question is how 
deep you have to 
go to find it.

Childish people try to sound
Complex, adult & important.
People of real understanding
Make the profound simple,
Often with a lively element
Of play and humor.

We walk around fighting
over our clashing illusions.
Let's WAKE together instead!

My Two Landmarks

A  L  O  H  A !
Diamond Head / Mt. Leahi

Diamond Head is the symbol of 
Honolulu, Hawaii & Waikiki.

Golden Gate Bridge - Towards San Francisco

The Golden Gate Bridge 
is the world-wide emblem 
of San Francisco

Diamond Head Entire, From Tantalus

Elevation‎: ‎762 ft (232 m)
Age of rock‎: ‎200,000 years

Almost Entire - From Marin Headlands

8,981 feet long (1.7 miles)

Contains about 88,000 tons of steel.

Total weight of the bridge is 887,000 tons.

Approximately 80,000 miles of wire inside 
each of the two steel cables.

The towers stand 726 feet above the water and 
500 feet above street level. They weigh 
44,000 tons each and are 4,200 feet 
apart from each other.

The bridge is 90 feet wide. Street level is 
about 220 feet above the water.

1848 - Captain John C. Fremont names the cleft in the Coastal Mountain Range opening onto San Francisco Bay the Golden Gate. The bridge derives its name from the land feature and not its color.

January 5, 1933 - Construction begins.
May 27, 1937 - The bridge is completed and opens to pedestrians. The bridge is built at a cost of approximately $35.5 million and comes in under budget and ahead of schedule.
May 28, 1937 - The bridge is opened to vehicles."

Me & Diamond Head 

“I live in my own little world. 
But its ok, they know me here.” 
       Lauren Myracle

Driving across the G.G.

"I have two homes, like someone 
who leaves their hometown 
and/or parents and then 
establishes a life elsewhere. 
They might say that 
they're going home 
when they return to see 
old friends or parents, 
but then they go home as well 
when they go to where 
they live now. 
Sarajevo is home, 
Chicago is home."
              Aleksandar Hemon
