How To Be Lucky

A  L  O  H  A !
Century Center, Makiki Stream, Honolulu
We ought to lay up a stock of absurd enthusiasms in our youth, or else we shall reach the end of our journey with an empty heart, for we lose a great many on our way.
Victor Cherbuliez, Samuel Brohl 
1877 translated from French

Barrier Of Palms
I'm interested in everything 
but passionate about nothing.
    Jeanne Calment
Oldest woman in history (122 years, 164 days).

Every age has its happiness
and troubles.
   Jeanne Calment

I took pleasure when I could. 
I acted clearly and morally 
and without regret. 
I'm very lucky.
   Jeanne Calment
