Horses & Flowers

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Focus on doing
the right things
instead of a
bunch of things. Mike Krieger

Sometimes big problems
are best solved with
lots of small and
creative solutions.
    Ricardo Salinas Pliego

Greatness comes by
doing a few small and
smart things each
and every day.
Comes from taking
little steps, consistently.
Comes from a making
a few small chips against
everything in your
professional and personal
life that is ordinary,
so that a day eventually
arrives when all that's
left is The Extraordinary.
Robin S. Sharma

Plato's Bicycle,
Plato's Cave

Great things are done by
a series of small things
brought together.
Vincent Van Gogh

In their eyes shine stars
of wisdom and courage
to guide men to
the heavens.
Jodie Mitchell

Perhaps the most comforting
thing about growing old
gracefully is the increasing
ability not to take things
too seriously. One of
the big differences
between a genuine sage
and a preacher is gaiety.
    Henry Miller

It's a small world, but
I wouldn't want to
have to paint it. Steven Wright

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Mona Lisa must have had
the highway blues;
you can tell by the
way she smiles.
Bob Dylan

You can't let one
bad moment spoil a
bunch of good ones.
Dale Earnhardt

Getting old is like
climbing a mountain;
you get a little out of breath,
but the view is much better!

Nothing Small

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Compliments linger. Diane Keaton

Gratitude, warm, sincere,
intense, when it takes
possession of the bosom,
fills the soul to overflowing
and scarce leaves room
for any other sentiment
or thought. John Quincy Adams

Wear gratitude
like a cloak and
it will feed every
corner of your life.

Live your life
while you have it.
Life is a splendid gift.
There is nothing
small in it.
Florence Nightingale

Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

Lots Of Small

A L O H A From Honolulu!

People seem
But if you smile at them,
most times they
will smile back.
It's always rewarding
and worthwhile,
especially now!

The voice is very beautiful
but it is not as great
as the silence.
    Charlie Chaplin

No act of kindness,
no matter how small,
is ever wasted.

Sometimes big problems
are best solved with
lots of small and
creative solutions.
  Ricardo Salinas Pliego

Our business in life
is not to succeed, but
to continue to fail
in good spirits.
Robert Louis Stevenson

Love You,

Love Into Words

 A L O H A From Honolulu!
Become so absolutely free
that your very existence
is an act of rebellion.
  Albert Camus

Get Beyond It!
The low-hanging fruit is
cynicism and pessimism,
and it's there if you want it.
You can reach out and
you can grab it, you don't
even have to
make any effort.
   Emilio Estevez

Ho! Ho! Ho!
To the bottle I go
To heal my heart and
drown my woe -

- Rain may fall, and
wind may blow
And many miles
be still to go
But under a tall tree
will I lie
And let the clouds
go sailing by
    J.R.R. Tolkien

A Too Quiet Street in N. California
the only time of year
you can sit in front of a
dead tree eating candy
out of socks. Anonymous

May you never be
too grown up to
search the skies
on Christmas eve.

Probably the reason
we all go so haywire

at Christmas time with
the endless unrestrained
and often silly buying of gifts
is that we don't quite know
how to put our love
into words.
  Harlan Miller


We Love You,
     Cloudia & Pixie

Ticking Through the Storm

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Avoid putting fat
down the drain and
blocking the sewerage pipes.
Add rolled oats to fat
in the pan to absorb the fat.
Then feed it to the birds.
They love it. It's win win!

Practice accepting people
for who they are
including YOURSELF.
  Tomoko Ella 

Say less, be more.

And don't argue at all.

Quiet minds cannot be
perplexed or frightened but
go on in fortune or misfortune
at their own private pace,
like a clock during
a thunderstorm.
  Robert Louis Stevenson 

We Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia
