A  L  O  H  A !
She carried a thousand lights 
inside her heart, and a 
thousand lights carried her.
Vatsal Surti

If only I could see myself 
from the same vantage point 
that I observe the world; 
I might judge my behavior and 
expressions more critically, 
and others less.
Richelle E. Goodrich

We must not allow other peoples'
limited perceptions to define us.

May love and peace
spread and heal.
May it start with a
quiet joy you
allow yourself to feel.

Do not wait for 
extraordinary circumstances
to do good; try to use 
ordinary situations.

All my life through, 
the new sights of Nature 
made me rejoice like a child.
Marie Curie

Every truth has two sides; 
it is as well to look at both, 
before we commit 
ourselves to either.

 I am not young 
but I feel young.
I feel that to live is 
a wonderful thing. 
Coco Chanel

Old Nonsense

A  L  O  H  A !
I only know how to approach a place by walking. 
For what does a street photographer do 
but walk and watch and wait and talk, 
and then watch and wait some more, 
trying to remain confident that the 
unexpected, the unknown, or the secret 
heat of the known awaits just 
around the corner. 
Alex Webb

Kalapana Link

Do the thing and you will have the power.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Finish each day and be done with it. 
You have done what you could. 
Some blunders and absurdities 
no doubt crept in; forget them 
as soon as you can. . .

. . . Tomorrow is a new day; 
begin it well and serenely 
and with too high a spirit 
to be encumbered with 
your old nonsense.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Love You,

Not For Everyone

A  L  O  H  A !

I realize that humor 
isn't for everyone.
 It's only for people 
who want to have fun, 
enjoy life, and feel alive.
Anne Wilson Schaef 

Those who love deeply
 never grow old;
 they may die of old age, 
but they die young.
Benjamin Franklin

Waikiki By Night
There was a sky somewhere 
above the tops of the buildings, 
with stars and a moon and 
all the things there are in a sky, 
but they were content to think 
of the distant street lights 
as planets and stars. If the lights 
prevented you from seeing the heavens, 
then perform a little magic and change 
reality to fit the need. The street lights 
were now planets and stars and moon.
Hubert Selby Jr.

There are truths 
which one can see 
only when it’s dark
Isaac Bashevis Singer

It is so small a thing 
to have enjoyed the sun, 
to have lived light in the spring, 
to have loved, to have thought, 
to have done.
Matthew Arnold

Dare to Believe 

in Your Happiness

Never be in a hurry; 
do everything quietly 
and in a calm spirit. 
Do not lose your inner peace 
for anything whatsoever, 
even if your whole world 
seems upset. 
Saint Francis de Sales

If we look at the world with a love of life,

Scatter Rich Smiles

A  L  O  H  A !
It's hard to beat a person 
who never gives up. 
Babe Ruth

Do not say a little in many words, 
but a great deal in a few.

Let my soul 
smile through my heart 
and my heart 
smile through my eyes,
 that I may scatter
 rich smiles 
in sad hearts.
Paramahansa Yogananda

Your Reality Follows You

A  L  O  H  A !
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

Look For Chances To Take 
The Less-Traveled Roads. 
There Are No Wrong Turns.
 Susan Magsamen

What we focus on outside 
is a reflection of 
what we feel inside.

You attract what you are, 
not what you want. So 
if you want it then reflect it.
