Even In The Thick

A L O H A From Honolulu!

A basket of ripe fruit is 

holier than any prayer book. 

     Marty Rubin

Tabebuia aurea - Pay Phone still in Your Town?

Learning to ignore things is 

one of the great paths 

to inner peace.

        Robert J. Sawyer

All fruit grows 

through abiding, 

not striving. 

Bill Johnson

To bear trials with a calm mind 

robs misfortune of its 

strength and burden.


The measure of wisdom is 

how calm you are when 

facing any given situation.

          Naval Ravikant


Life and the world
are an arena of

Complete resolution
of everything
is not meant to be
for now.

But resolution and rest
can be yours
even in the thick of it.

Minute to minute,
walk in peace.

Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

Note: The outdoor cat above may well be Pixie's cousin, as Islands are insular, and cats are prime colonizers. Cute ones, but tell that to the indigenous birds! Hawaii has no wild turkeys. Even before the cats got here!

I worked on a lot of payphones in my years at the phone company.

That turkey is lucky that Pixie's big, plump cousin is an ocean away! Great quotes today, Cloudia. I love Pixie's relaxed calmness, too.

Love that Seneca quote and the totally 'laxed Pixie.

Pixie knows the wisest course of action is a good nap.

No, I have not noticed any payphones. Pixie and her cousin look very comfy.
Cool capture of the turkey! I always try to walk in peace!

We have wild turkeys here in FL and we saw a big track of one yesterday. Love your quotes about peace! PEACE!!!

Jean said...

I wonder if that cat would run from the wild turkey twice its size? I know our cat would be scared. Beautiful photos!

Kay said...

Oh gracious! I thought that WAS Pixie. Nope, no wild turkeys for sure, but lots and lots of chickens.

Gorgeous sky capture! Love the relaxing calico cat/ Pixie lookalike & attentive turkey.

Anni said...
