Already There

A  L  O  H  A !
A smile is the 

universal welcome.

        Max Eastman

Sometimes, days and 

months of conversation 

cannot do what an 

hour of play can achieve. 

It might take an 

hour of play to 

know a person, real person 

lurking behind the mask.

 Pragya Tiwari

The most important trip 

you may take in life 

is meeting people 

half way.

 Henry Boyle

She had blue skin,

And so did he.

He kept it hid

And so did she.

They searched for blue

Their whole life through,

Then passed right by-

And never knew.

   Shel Silverstein

Be patient, and 

presently the fog 

will clear and that 

which has always 

been there can 

be seen. 

The path is already 

there to follow.

        Rasheed Ogunlaru

We're all 

just walking 

each other

Inner Win, Winner IN

A   L   O   H   A  !
Our capacity to

consider ideas

different from

the way we

"just feel it to be"

gives us the chance

to grow, to become

more than we 

already are.

When this ability

to consider

is bullied by

powerful emotion

we lose something

very precious.

The answer is not

to be emotionless.

But to experience

every emotion

like a symphony

of being human.

Hand in hand with

what is true, not

what we'd prefer.

Weak arguments

must be loud.

Truth comes like


Volume is just

counterfeit persuasion.

You Are

What You 


So use the privilege

to build on facts

not attractive fallacies.

Kindness is an inner desire 

that makes us want to 

do good things even if we 

do not get anything

in return. 

It is the joy of our life 

to do them. 

When we do good things 

from this inner desire, 

there is kindness in 

everything we think, 

say, want, and do.



You Are The Reason!

Your Play

A  L  O  H  A !

Better than a 

thousand hollow words,

 is one word that 

brings peace.


Life is like a mirror, 

we get the best results 

when we smile at it.

Asian Flower Beetle

Any foolish child 

can stamp on a beetle, 

but all the professors 

in the world cannot 

make a beetle.


The moon is 

a friend for

the lonesome

to talk to.

        Carl Sandburg

What saves one 

is to take a step. 

Then another step. 

It is always the same step, 

but you have to take it.

   Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry
                                      Wind, Sand and Stars, 1939


You Make a 


WHAT difference 

you make is 

in your power!

You're Doing Good

A  L  O  H  A !

Until you're ready 

to look foolish, you'll 

never have the 

possibility of 

being great.


Man is most nearly himself 

when he achieves the 

seriousness of a 

child at play.


I'm cracking but I'm facking:

I'm wisecracking, but 

I'm telling the truth 

           Zora Neale Hurston

Glossary of Harlem
Slang terms circa 1930's

Angel Spotlight

Living is like tearing 

through a museum. 

Not until later do you 

really start absorbing 

what you saw,

 thinking about it, 

 and remembering

 because you can't 

take it in all at once.

              Audrey Hepburn



how well you are coping

with this 

highly unusual 


Take a moment to notice

your quiet competence

that doesn't shout,

but speaks volumes.

We Love You,

Build a Little Fence

A  L  O  H  A !

There is no fence 

or hedge round time 

that has gone. 

You can go back and

have what you like 

if you remember 

it well enough.

Richard Llewellyn

Truth is always right, 

observing it guarantees 

us victory in life.

              Sunday Adelaja

Build a little fence 

of trust around today; 

Fill the space with 

loving deeds, and 

therein stay.     

    Mary Butts

Opportunity never 

sneaks up on those

who straddle the

fence of indecision.

                  Napoleon Hill

Today is a new day... 

Make a pact with 

yourself to not be 

defined by your past.

Steve Marboli

Shadows Recede

A  L  O  H  A !
Lowell Arizona by Anissa Gunther

As long as anger 

dominates our disposition, 

there is no possibility 

of lasting happiness. 

   Dalai Lama

A good laugh is 

sunshine in a house.

            William Thackeray

Finnegan's Bar, Marin CA

Without deviation 

from the norm

progress is not possible.

            Frank  Zappa

Before Times, 2013

Never love anyone 

who treats you

like you're ordinary.

 Oscar Wilde

There is a calmness 

to a life lived in 

gratitude, a quiet joy. 

 Ralph Blum

Every time you do 

a good deed you 

shine the light a little 

farther into the dark. 

And the thing is, 

when you're gone 

that light is going to 

keep shining on, 

pushing the 

shadows back.

    Charles de Lint

A    L    O    H    A  !
Although our intellect 

always longs for clarity 

and certainty, our nature 

often finds uncertainty 


     Carl von Clausewitz

Gratitude is happiness  

doubled by wonder.

     Gilbert K. Chesterton

There is something 

of the marvelous in 

all things of nature.  

Music is well said 

to be the speech 

of angels; in fact, 

nothing among the 

utterances allowed to man 

is felt to be so divine. 

It brings us near 

to the infinite.

    Thomas Carlyle

Birds sing after a storm;

why shouldn't people feel 

as free to delight in 

whatever sunlight 

remains to them?

            Rose Kennedy

Pixie, her "last chance"
