Better Day Coming

A  L  O  H  A !
The scariest demons
of darkest night -

- Fade in the glory of
morning's good light.

Lies kill the spirit. 
But Truth cannot be
hidden forever

There have been tyrants and murderers, 
and for a time, they can seem invincible,
 but in the end, they always fall. 
Think of it--always.
             Mahatma Gandhi

A  L  O  H  A !
Three things in human life are important. 
The first is to be kind. 
The second is to be kind. And 
the third is to be kind.     
        Henry James

Some beautiful paths 
can't be discovered 
without getting lost.
 Erol Ozan

 Even if I hide myself in the deepest closet, 
in a cheetah overnight rolling bag,
you will seek me and find me 
my human companion.

I rely my on that.

Stars don’t beg the world for attention; 
their beauty forces us to look up.
            Matshona Dhliwayo

Or down.

Stay positive, all other choices

The positive energy and love 
we give to others,

Very little is needed 
to make a happy life; it is 
all within yourself, in 
your way of thinking.

A Few Small Wonders

A  L  O  H  A !
To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
        William Blake

The world is full of magic things, 
patiently waiting for our senses 
to grow sharper.
        W.B. Yeats

The pursuit of truth and beauty is 
a sphere of activity in which 
we are permitted to remain 
children all our lives.

New Day New

A  L  O  H  A !
When a new day begins, 
dare to smile gratefully.

Matter Of Perspective

A  L  O  H  A !
It does not matter how long 
you are spending on the earth, 
how much money you have gathered or 
how much attention you have received. 
It is the amount of positive vibration 
you have radiated in life that matters.
               Amit Ray

Most misunderstandings in the world 
could be avoided if people would 
simply take the time to ask, 
"What else could this mean?”
          Shannon L. Alder

If you look the right way, 
you can see that the whole 
world is a garden.
          Frances Hodgson Burnett

Watering Hole

A  L  O  H  A !
You didn't come into this world.  
You came out of it, like 
a wave from the ocean.  
You are not a stranger here.  
      Alan Watts

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely, or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy amidst the simple beauty of nature. ...I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.  
                   Anne Frank

Return to old watering holes 
for more than water; friends and 
dreams are there to meet you.
                     African Saying

A cloudy day is no match 
for a sunny disposition.     
          William Arthur Ward

Compassion Is A Verb

A  L  O  H  A !
Cloud and Peak Embrace

Walk as if you are kissing 
the Earth with your feet.
              Thich Nhat Hanh

Expression in a dear face

Sometimes your joy is
the source of your smile, but 
sometimes your smile can 
be the source of your joy.
Thich Nhat Hanh

Cattle in the sugar cane, downtown Honolulu

If you love someone, the greatest gift 
you can give them is your presence. . .
Compassion is a verb. . .
When we are mindful, 
deeply in touch with the present moment, 
our understanding of what is going on 
deepens, and we begin to be filled with 
acceptance, joy, peace and love.
             Thich Nhat Hanh

Letting go gives us freedom, 
and freedom is the only condition for happiness. 
If, in our heart, we still cling to anything 
- anger, anxiety, or possessions - 
we cannot be free. . . . 
People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. 
Out of a fear of the unknown, 
they prefer suffering that is familiar.
               Thich Nhat Hanh

Wake Self

A  L  O  H  A !
Misty Mornings
This morning I woke up,
and I was me.
Same place, right time,
same age, same face.

Morning On Tiny Cat's Feet

Sometimes I wonder
if the past 30 years
have only been a dream.
Would the dream fade, or
would all unfold as I had dreamt
so I could buy Apple and Google
the first day shares are offered?
Would I meet my mate?
Might I miss that date?

North King Street, Honolulu

How would life be different
If I were you and you were me?
What heaven or muck-Up
would that turn out to be?

“When I discover who I am, 
I’ll be free.”
          Ralph Ellison

Messenger And Message

A  L  O  H  A !
To succeed in life, you need three things: 
a wishbone, a backbone and a funny bone.
              Reba McEntire

You need to make a commitment, 
and once you make it, then life 
will give you some answers. 
             Les Brown

Same building as photo above
I fell in love with taking pictures, with 
wandering around finding things. 
To me, it feels like a kind of performance. 
The picture is a document of that performance.  
            Alec Soth

Whenever you have truth
it must be given with love,
or the message and
the messenger 
will be rejected.
