Wise Cat

A  L  H  A !
It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. 
I am strongly in favor of common sense, 
common honesty, and common decency.
This makes me forever ineligible 
for public office.
    H. L. Mencken

Examine what is said, 
not him who speaks.
   Arab Proverb



3 Deep Grateful Breaths.


throughout the day!

Night, when words 
fade and 
things come alive. 
When the destructive 
analysis of day is done, 
and all that is 
truly important 
becomes whole 
and sound again. 
When man reassembles 
his fragmentary self 
and grows 
with the calm of a tree.
     Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Transforming Your World

A  L  O  H  A !
Perhaps the feelings 
that we experience 
when we are in love 
represent a normal state. 
Being in love shows a person 
who he should be. 
   Anton Chekhov

If we choose to actively seek out 
information that challenges our 
assumptions and beliefs, perhaps 
we can begin to understand 
where the people who 
disagree with us 
are coming from.
           Barack Obama

The moment you have in your heart 
this extraordinary thing called love 
and feel the depth, the delight, 
the ecstasy of it, you will discover that 
for you the world is transformed.
             Jiddu Krishnamurti

If you add your hot passion to the 
cold attitude of another person, 
it becomes lukewarm. 
Don’t stand on the toes of dwarfs; 
stand on the shoulders of giants!

There is something that is much more scarce, something finer far, something rarer than ability. It is the ability to recognize ability.

Don't Exercise

A  L  O  H  A !

than prayers and fasting? 
Making peace between two people.

just with a camera.

You bring to the act of photography 

all the pictures you have seen
the books you have read
the music you have heard,
the people you have loved.

Fireworks, Doll, Angel

A  L  O  H  A !
When you meet someone
so different from yourself,
in a good way,
you don’t even have to kiss
to have fireworks go off.
    Lisa Schroeder

Dolls are precious little reflections of joyous light, whose hope is only to delight. I never shoot for perfection or symmetry in doll making. It is our lovely flaws that make us each special.

Be the first

Honolulu Bungalow Link Papaya Tree (L)

The rough must always accompany the smooth. Without one or the other 
one learns nothing about oneself.
        Solange nicole

When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing - just sitting and looking at the sea, or watching the wind blowing the tree limbs, or waves rippling on a pond, a flickering candle or children playing in the park?
