Mind's Own Place

 A   L   O   H   A !

"Years Ago"

One day I met a maiden 

with honey-colored hair

There never was a maiden 

so beautiful somewhere.

          Jimmie Rodgers

The timeless in you 

is aware of life's 


Kahlil Gibran

Guides come when 

you're ready to listen; 

no eBay or Amazon link 

will fetch them. 

You need to invite, 

not pursue.

    Helen S. Rosenau

Honolulu Mayor is 
persona no grata at
shuttered bars.

The hotel bar was 

quiet and dark, with 

the kind of mood that 

promotes good talk 

and serious drinking.

 George R.R. Martin

The mind is 

its own place, and 

in itself can make 

a heaven of hell, 

a hell of heaven.

   John Milton


Love You,
                   Cloudia & Pixie

I really like the John Milton quote. Those words are so true. Have a great week.

"Medical professionals consulting with the city were uncomfortable opening bars back up at all, he said. The indoor environment encourages social interaction, people can’t wear masks when they’re drinking, and in general, people “let their guard down,” Caldwell said."

If I were him I would hire extra inspectors and be on these places case for another year. Close them down for any violation. Then he can make them kiss his ass to open back up.

Appreciate your insights and encouragement friends.

Thank you.
Many of our bars were closed too and are s.l.o.w.l.y reopening. And may yet slam shut again. Which is fine by me. A drink is not worth my life - or anyone else's.

I love the Rosenau quote because it is SO true and thought provoking. I also love it for the mural you have shared with Monday Murals.

Personally, I think your mayor is wise. Our bars have been opened on a 1/2 basis with hours cut. I worry about people going to bars just for the socialization. The drinking causes one to loose their inhibitions, which leads to the virus spreading. I think this is a FABULOUS photo and quote for T this upcoming Tuesday, dear.

Sami said...

Quite a colourful mural. Thanks for participating Cloudia.

The lockdown/shut down is really hard and devastating on businesses but if you watch what's happening in the UK and Europe, it's about to get a whole lot worse. I can understand why Honolulu is being careful.
