The December I Remember

A  L  O  H  A !
Waikiki December Skies
The heart is very much like the sea, 
it has its storms, it has its tides, 
and in its depths it has its pearls too.
       Vincent Van Gogh

Also Waikiki December Skies
The dance of the palm trees,
the oceans calling, the 
first rays of sun and 
heaven is here.
   Michael Dolan

Winter People
When the light shines on you, 
you are filled up with the light! 
And then what happens? Then you 
will start loading your light on others!

Turtle On Vacation

Linking To:

As many of you know, I have lived in Hawaii half my life, the better half. After many years, we had the opportunity to move to California for a  time. We were there four years, and accomplished what we had gone to do. 

I have never taken these Islands for granted! 
Living, working, growing here, has made me who I am, and shaped how I feel about life and others. This was never as clear as when I lived in a different climate both terrestrial and social.

This is my first December home 
since Dec. 2014.

Every day I appreciate the balmy breezes, epic skies, and ways of life. Walking the few blocks to the beach, I repeat: 
"I'm walking in the sun! 
I'm walking in the sun!" 

At last I feel that I can rest and look to the future 
as a succession of such moments.
A retirement in the midst of life!

I love morning, noon and blessed night.

Here's hoping that YOU are marinating
in the healing celebration of
Your Home!


Love You,

It's hard to believe you were gone for 4 years. It seems like you just moved to California and then you went back right away.
