Life Places

A  L  O  H  A !
But on you will go

though the weather be foul.

On you will go

though your enemies prowl.

On you will go

though the Hakken-Kraks howl.

Onward up many

a frightening creek,

though your arms may get sore

and your sneakers may leak.

      Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!







Old God sure was in

a good mood when 

he made this place.

     Hunter S. Thompson









Life…we understand it 

differently at different stages. 

It’s what is interesting 

about getting older, 

you realize your 

relationship 

with the past is 

always negotiable. . .









Drinking Companion, Hideaway Bar
Link (Since re-furbished)
. . .There is a lot of freedom in that, 

because you realize you can go 

back to what you did 

such a long time ago. . .









. . .You can talk with the dead, 

talk with your lost self, 

your disappeared self, and 

you can visit those places again, 

and understand it differently. 

That makes a huge difference.

Jeanette Winterson









I visited many places,

Some of them quite

Exotic and far away,

But I always returned 

to myself.

 Dejan Stojanovic




Love You,

Belly Rub?

A   L   O   H   A  !

Mere color, unspoiled by meaning, 

and unallied with definite form, 

can speak to the soul in a 

thousand different ways.     

Oscar Wilde

"The ʻAhu ʻula (feather cloak in the Hawaiian language), and the mahiole (feather helmet) were symbols of the highest rank of the chiefly aliʻi class of ancient Hawaii. The feathered cloaks and capes were believed to provide spiritual protection for Hawaiian chiefs." Link

 Gardens are not made by 

singing 'Oh, how beautiful,' 

and sitting in the shade.

Rudyard Kipling















Never have a companion 

that casts you in the shade. 

Baltasar Gracian















When I am content, I want 

to lie forever in the shade, till I 

become a shade myself. 

    T. E. Lawrence







She is starting to really
look forward to
visiting with you
every day!

Thanks For Showing Up.
We Adore You,

Bus Stops In Heaven

A  L  O  H  A !
Saratoga Road Bus Stop, Waikiki

"So many people are waiting

 for their happiness to come. 

It's not here yet, 

but they are waiting. 

It's like standing in a line 

waiting for your bus. 













Kalia Road Bus Stop
One day, people say, 

my ship will come. 

One day, I'll make it. 

One day, I'll be happy. 















Yet, incredibly enough, 

there has always been 

someone who has pointed out 

the simple fact that what 

we are looking for is inside." 

           Maharaji



















Here The Stones & Rocks 

"POHAKU"


Have Faces, Histories, 

Stories, Legends.

We have had a relationship 

for 30 years.

They watch me pass, grow older.

I recognize, and salute them.








Here We Are In Northern California

New Beginnings Made Fresh Daily

A   L   O   H   A  !
The thing that's important to know 

is that you never know. 

You're always sort of 

feeling your way.

Diane Arbus


















For a moment at least, 

be a smile on 

someone else’s face.

    Dejan Stojanovic
                        















Do not seek to follow in

the footsteps of the wise.

Seek what they sought.

Matsuo Basho

















New Beginnings

Made Fresh Daily!


















How are you doing?
Ups & Downs?
All Arounds?

Us Too.

The background music
of our life,
Pixie's & mine,
is deeply grateful
infused with the beauty
of Hawaii
and this
Positive Pulse
that you & I
are riding on 
together.


Ride on!


At this moment,
No One Knows
more than your
own heart.

Feel it beat.

Look at what you
appreciate.

We are all playing a part
in a new emergence.

I love you.

Don't spin your wheels
or waste your energy
on
"What If."

Let's go on with gratitude
for this opportunity
to live our beliefs.

One Breath At A Time.


Fondly,
                     cloudia & Pixie

Onward Voyager

A   L   O   H   A !
Every painting is a voyage 

into a sacred harbour.

Giotto di Bondone












There's nothing written in the Bible, 

Old or New testament, that says, 

If you believe in Me, you ain't 

going to have no troubles.

Ray Charles











Just to be is a blessing. 

Just to live is holy.

    Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel*












 Pleasure is spread 

through the earth in

stray gifts to be claimed 

by whoever shall find.

William Wordsworth, 1806















Palm Grove At Waikiki
I didn't want to tell the tree 

or weed what it was.

I wanted it to tell me something 

and through me express its 

meaning in nature.

     Wynn Bullock

















I began to have an idea of my life, 

not as the slow shaping 

of achievement to fit

my preconceived purposes, but 

as the gradual discovery and growth 

of a purpose which I did not know.

Joanna Field









Love YOU,

Considered “one of the truly great men” of his day and a “great prophet” by Martin Luther King, Jr., Heschel articulated to many Jewish Americans and African Americans the notion that they had a responsibility for each other’s liberation and for the plight of all suffering fellow humans around the world (“Conversation with Martin Luther King,” 2).  Link
