Going To Be SOME Light

 A   L   O   H   A  !

I Never Tire Of Oahu Mornings

Forever is 

composed of nows.

                     Emily Dickinson

My Candidate & New Friends!  ⬈

No one seems to have the 
definitive origin story
of this custom, but in Hawaii candidates
for political office & reelection take to the 
intersections and byways of their islands
with friends and supporters to hold signs,
and wave SHAKAs Link.  As a former street
outreach worker in public health, I have
tons of skills for engaging strangers in public.
I'm not afraid to shake that. . . 
sign, and dance about.
After months spent at home, 
or my exotic vay-cay
to the grocery store en-masque, 
it was actually
a bit TOO much fun.

not in another place 

but this place,

not for another hour, 

but this hour.

It is only through shadows 

that one comes to 

know the light.

Mood Blocks

 A   L   O   H   A  !

All learning has 

an emotional base.


Only one point of view

cannot see the truth.

That is why we have two

eyes and many


Be careful of your 

moods and feelings, 

for there is an unbroken 

connection between your 

feelings and your visible world.

Your body is an emotional 

filter and bears the 

unmistakable marks of 

your prevalent emotions. 

A change of feeling is 

change of destiny. 

All creation occurs in the 

domain of the subconscious

      Neville Goddard

Water is the only 

drink for the wise.   

           Henry David Thoreau

Looks Good, Pixie!

Dawn Lagoon

 A   L   O   H   A !

Every act is either 

an act of love or 

a cry for love.

     Jay Shetty

When you are not sure, 

flip a coin because while 

the coin is in the air, you

realize which one 

you are actually hoping for.

        Jay Shetty

Circumstances are the 

rulers of the weak; 

they are but the 

instruments of the wise.

             Samuel Lover

I love asking kids 

what they want to be 

when they grow up because 

I’m still looking for ideas.

"Rancho  Novato"
This Mural in Novato California shows the area well.

When nothing is sure, 

everything is possible.

         Margaret Drabble

All of these photos were taken in 
Marin County California when we
lived there recently for 4 years. 

Pixie had the chance to meet &
greet the wildlife, to walk along the fence, 
and to hear the coyotes call. 

I'm pretty sure she also was on friendly terms 
with the racoon family on the property. 

The ducks were her especial friends.

 I saw them beak to whisker many times. 

Pixie was trying to figure them
out. The ducks hoped she 
had some food for them no doubt.


Love You!

Just For Today

 A   L   O   H   A  !

Travel in easy stages

go at your own pace

marching to your drummer,

stately, it's not a race.

Look about you

feel the sun

at play 

upon your face.

Each step and sight

day or night

carries deep conviction:

THIS is the place!

You have Today,

this moment.

Choose  your joy.

Just for this moment,

Just for this day.

Muscular joy

can carry even

sadness for a while.

Keeping Calm, 

taking a beat,

is a radically

important act!

Step Over

 A   L   O   H   A  !

The two most engaging 

powers of a photograph 

are to make new things 

familiar and familiar 

things new.

            William Thackeray

 When someone spews 

something really hurtful 

don’t pick it up and hold it 

and rub it into your heart 

and snuggle with it and 

carry it around for a long time. 

Don’t even put energy into 

kicking it to the curb. 

You’ve got to see it and 

step over it or go around it 

and keep on going.

   Brene Brown

Once one has shown 

there's a way through, 

others will follow. 

        Frank Bowling

Yesterday is not 

ours to recover, but 

tomorrow is ours 

to win or lose. 

Lyndon B. Johnson

Focus On

 A   L   O   H   A !

Walking through life, 

we spend most of our 

energy choosing 

the right shoes.

 Ljupka Cvetanova

The secret of change is 

to focus all of your energy

not on fighting the old, 

but on building the new.


Positive thinking is 

powerful thinking. 

If you want happiness, 

fulfillment, success 

and inner peace, 

start thinking you have 

the power to achieve 

those things. Focus on the 

bright side of life and 

expect positive results. 

          Germany Kent

Despair is the biggest 

mistake you can make. 

Especially about 

future projections. 

No one lives forever. 

Don't spoil your 

moment in the sun. 

We all get worried 

from time to time, but 

Joy is the 

most important 

work we will ever do, 

the most important thing 

we will ever share.

Stop focusing on

the shoes!



Love You,
