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.

"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
This Mural may be seen at The Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL)

 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.

Hello sweet Pixie!

Teresa said...

I believe that Pixie is commanding her adoring fans to rub her belly. Can she sense virtual belly rubs? I scratched her tummy on my computer screen... Hopefully, she started purring.

Stunning mural and quotes.
I would very happily give the lovely Pixie a belly rub. It is a bit like Russian Roulette where Jazz is concerned. Sometimes he loves it, and other days the pointy bits latch onto my arm.

Will Pixie lay still long enough to tolerate a belly rub?

That was interesting information regarding the feather cloak.

Sami said...

Interesting info about the feather cloaks.
Love the bird in the shade under the car and give Pixie some belly rubs for me.
Thanks for participating Cloudia.

You may rub my belly three times. Four times and I go to town on your hand.

STILL playing catch-up, Cloudia. I came to see the incredible mural that was SO native Hawaiian, and stayed to see the other beautiful art and quotes. Pixie is such an adorable beauty.

Mandy said...

I didn't know about the feather cape and helmet. So neat!

Definitely give your cat a belly rub for me!

With Love,

I love those feather cloaks -- the few surviving examples are in museums in the most unexpected places. For example, the British Museum.

be well... mae at
