Take A Day

A   L   O   H   A  !

Each person deserves a day away 
in which no problems are confronted, 
no solutions searched for.  
Each of us needs to withdraw from the
cares which will not withdraw from us.
          Maya Angelou

Pumehana Street runs to the Mountains
Me ke aloha 
With the warmth of my love

Rest is not idleness, and 
to lie sometimes on the grass 
under trees on a summer's day,
listening to the murmur of the water, 
or watching the clouds float across the sky, 
is by no means a waste of time.
                     John Lubbock

A quiet secluded life in the country, 
with the possibility of being useful 
to people to whom it is easy to do good, 
and who are not accustomed 
to have it done to them; 
then work which one hopes 
may be of some use; 
then rest, nature, books, music, 
love for one's neighbor — 
such is my idea of happiness.
                     Leo Tolstoy

Love You,

Time out is so often an essential. Particularly when the problems seem too big to manage.

I always enjoy my visit to Hawaii through your photos. Your colorful photos brightened this gloomy, rainy day where I live. :) Stay well.
