Strong Enough To Leap

A   L   O   H   A  !
 Ink cannot tell the 

glow that 

lights me at this moment 

in turning to the mountains.
I feel strong 

[enough] to leap 

Yosemite walls at a bound.

  John Muir

Waikiki Waits Her Visitors

The future is for those 

who know how to wait.

 Russian Proverb

It’s good to hope, 

it’s the waiting 

that spoils it.

The splendour falls 

on castle walls 

And snowy summits 

old in story.

Your Day

A   L   O   H   A  !
Grackle can teach 


in expressing emotions 

and helps

balance the head 

and emotions. 

She awakens the mind 

with awareness 

as changes of perceptions 

are unfolding. 

He stirs psychic abilities 

and brings

to consciousness 

latent healing gifts 

and creativity.

Evolve Within 

The earth laughs in flowers.

 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Dreams are necessary 

to life.

Dreams pass into 

the reality of action. 

From the actions stems 

the dream again; and 

this interdependence 

produces the highest 

form of living.

   Anais Nin

Create with the heart; 

build with the mind.     

    Criss Jami

Carry On

Sing your song

No storm can last

too much longer

than long!

Enjoy YOUR Day.

After The Hurricane

A   L   O   H   A !
Summer afternoon, 

summer afternoon; 

to me those have 

always been the two 

most beautiful words 

in the English language. 

Henry James

When you're a kid, 

you lay in the grass 

and watch the clouds 

going over, and you 

literally don't have a 

thought in your mind. 

It's purely meditation, 

and we lose that.     

          Dick Van Dyke

Dinner Show

African Daisy
Since everything

is a reflection 

of our minds, 

everything can 

be changed 

by our minds.


Domestic Sweetie
You attract

what you are, 


what you want. 

So if you want it 

then reflect it.

   Tony Gaskins

THAT close!
[I'm the bright fuchsia dot]


Love You!

Sings Itself

A   L   O   H   A !
Keeping your body healthy 

is an expression 

of gratitude 

to the whole cosmos 

the trees, the clouds, 


Thich Nhat Hanh

Be on the alert to 

recognize your prime 

at whatever time 

of your life 

it may occur.

   Muriel Spark

I am a necessary part 

of an important search 

to which there is 

no end.

  Keith Haring


I remember when all of 
those amazing
crawling babies 
started to appear
around New York City. 
They were at once 
something new, and 
very mysterious.

Now we remember 
Keith Haring who
spoke to us with his vision,
 and how he responded
to the HIV crisis with 
his kindness, talent,
time, and money. 
You can read more 
about Keith Haring 

In summer, 

the song 

sings itself.

William Carlos Williams

Hold On Loosely

A   L   O   H   A !
"I guessed life 

was like that. 

You gained and you lost, 

and if you saved anything 

from the ruins, even if 

only a shred of 


- it was enough to take you 

through the next bit.     

Dick Francis

In the midst of winter, 

I finally learned 

there was in me 

an invincible summer.

    Albert Camus

Without the strength 

to endure the crisis, 

one will not see the 

opportunity within. 

It is within the 

process of endurance 

that opportunity 

reveals itself.     

Chin-Ning Chu

Just hold on loosely

But don't let go

If you cling to tightly

You're gonna lose control

Your baby needs 

someone to believe in

And a whole lot of 

space to breathe in.

No Rules Here

A   L   O   H   A !
Mahogany Trees planted in 1912, Kalakaua Ave.

i thank You God for 

most this amazing day:

for the leaping greenly 

spirits of trees and a 

blue true dream of sky; 

and for everything

which is natural 

which is infinite 

which is yes  

e.e. cummings

Little tendrils of the heart

Curling out and groping,

Seeking little things to hold,

Wiggling and hoping.

Little tendrils, little tendrils,

innocent and plucky,

I pray that you are careful

And I hope that 

you are lucky.

     Michael Leunig

The sweetest type 

of heaven is home.

Josiah Gilbert Holland 

I long, as does 

every human being, 

to be at home 

wherever I find myself.

 Maya Angelou

Hell, there are 

no rules here; 

We're trying to 

accomplish something!

Thomas Edison


Thanks for walking

Honolulu with us!

Wish I Knew But I Do

A   L   O   H   A  !
Self-care is never 

a selfish act-it is 

simply good stewardship 

of the only gift I have, 

the gift I was put on earth 

to offer to others.

     Parker Palmer

Be that self 

which one

truly is.

Soren Kierkegaard

Prejudices are

what fools use 

for reason.


When pure sincerity 

forms within,

 it is outwardly realized 

in other people's hearts.

 Lao Tzu

Who am I?

I wish I knew.

So many versions

like the years just flew,

but I knew by each

successive permutation

some aspect of 

the project to

polish, or completely

smooth down.

I'm  done 

with the frown.

Oh I've seen it around.

But it can do it's job


Hanging back more

but I still care,

and bringing the 

Good Stuff distilled

from mountaintops

with a dash of despair.

So there.

We're here.

And I do hold You 


Love the loving

avoid the hate

heaven is within you,

inhabit it.

Don't wait.
