Yes. It IS Okay to Be Happy

A    L    O    H    A   !
The soul becomes dyed with 
the color of its thoughts.

They take images outside them for reality and 
never allow the world within them to assert itself.
          Hermann Hesse









Call for the grandest of all earthly spectacles,

To Hope A Little

A    L    O    H    A   !
Happiness requires something to do, 
something to love and 
something to hope for.
        Swahili Proverb











Patience attracts happiness; 
it brings near that which is far.
    Swahili Proverb





















Life is easier than you'd think; 
all that is necessary is to 
accept the impossible, do without the 
indispensable, and bear the intolerable.
        Kathleen Norris










Happiness can grow from 
only a little contentment.
          Pygmy Proverb

Making For The Shore

A    L    O    H    A  !
Difficulties make you a jewel.
     Japanese Proverb








Modest doubt is called the 
beacon of the wise. 
             William Shakespeare









Divide and rule, the politician cries; 
unite and lead, is watchword of the wise.

Time and Timelessness meet at a door,

The door says stop but we all want more.

There is another side.

We're making strides
headed to a different shore.

We ARE Doing It!

A    L    O    H    A  !

Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.
 Anthony J. D'Angelo












Torch Ginger & Disinfectant;
Waikiki in Virus Time.

What sunshine is to flowers, 
smiles are to humanity. 
These are but trifles, to be sure; 
but scattered along life's pathway, 
the good they do is inconceivable.     
    Joseph Addison












 Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others 
cannot keep it from themselves.     
           James Matthew Barrie















 Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. 
It might be the only sunshine he sees all day.
                H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
















If you want to see the sunshine, 
you have to weather the storm.
        Frank Lane

We WILL Get There!

Empty Beaches of Waikiki

A  L  O  H  A !
Vulnerability sounds like truth 
and feels like courage. 
Truth and courage aren’t 
always comfortable, 
but they’re never weakness.
                     Brene Brown











*   E   M   P   T   Y  *














Authenticity is a collection of choices that 
we have to make every day. It’s about 
the choice to show up and be real. 
The choice to be honest. The choice to 
let our true selves be seen. 
          Brene Brown








Where Are My Crumbs & Scraps?!










The art of living lies 
less in eliminating 
our troubles than 
in growing with them.
     Bernard M. Baruch









The dark does not destroy the light; 
it defines it. It’s our fear of the dark 
that casts our joy into the shadows.
          Brene Brown








Don't underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, 
of just going along, listening to all the things 
you can't hear, and not bothering.   
Winnie the Pooh

Sit loosely in the saddle of life.
Robert Louis Stevenson
