The Question Is How Deep

A  L  O  H  A !
A friend has the magic 
power to remind you 
who you are and to 
call you home
 to yourself.

People of real understanding
Make the profound simple,
Often with a lively element
Of play and humor.

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

Ala Moana Beach Park, Oahu

Your special is 
not your clothes, 
Not your pose 
Or being given a rose. 

Your special was 
before all that
