Simple Truths and Shave Ice

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Remotely Attending Business Meeting in New York 
(note phone)

Love one another and

help others to rise to
the higher levels, simply
by pouring out love.
Love is infectious and the
greatest healing energy.
Sai Baba

See with a different eye, 

visualize with a colorful mind, 

manifest your thoughts 

with the energy within.

       Michael Bassey Johnson

I  Like  Yellow

I like to prowl ordinary places.

I feel sorry for us all or glad for us

all caught alive together

and awkward in that way.

there's nothing better than 

the joke of us

the seriousness of us

the dullness of us. -

- I like to prowl

ordinary places and taste the people- from a distance. Charles Bukowski

is an international 

Tourist Destination!

While many explorers like

to endure hardship by

traveling to remote

inhospitable parts

of the world, I prefer

to explore from the

comfort of my own home.

Burning Patience

A L O H A From Honolulu!

In the dawn, 

armed with a 

burning patience, 

we shall enter 

the splendid Cities.

Arthur Rimbaud

Kigelia africana,   "sausage tree" 

We cannot listen to 

one voice above all others. 

We must listen to a choir 

of voices if we are to 

understand the 

individual tunes.

   Anthony T.Hincks

Note the drink cup

One day, your light 

will silence the darkness, 

and you will be 

surrounded by the 

beauty within.

A.D. Posey

- knowledge turns 

with each thinking hour, 

longing for the 

dawn of answers.

Anthony Liccione

You are indeed, Pixie!

Calmly Care Deeply

 Yet weightless as feathers.

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Happiness is a warm puppy.

Charles M. Schulz

For over a year,
it didn't feel wise
to go outside
into the strange night.

The streets I know
were empty with
It didn't feel safe.

Here is my first
outdoor Night Photo
in over a year!

During Hurricane Iniki, fish were swimming 
in the Honolulu streets. This is nicer!

We all struggle at times

and when you see

somebody struggling,

you think, ‘Gee, that

guy is being a jerk.

Well, sometimes

you’re that jerk.

Dwight Lambert

The flowers take the tears 

of weeping night, and 

give them to the sun 

for the day's delight.

Joseph Cotter

It has been over a year.
And it's been tough.

Life's simplest tasks
suddenly gargantuan,
scary, difficult.
Simple things, difficult to find.

Wrapped in isolation.
Streets empty.
Routines gone.

Every person in the world
at whatever level or condition
has surfed major change;

Our carefully balanced
life-houses of cards upended.
Some tossed on the floor,
some scattered to the winds.

Even those of us still here
are different.

And that change 
is just beginning.
new ways of winning.

Let's worry less, listen more,
calmly care deeply, yet
weightless as feathers.

New ways emerging.
I want to see what they are.
Don't You?

Be gentle with yourself.
And with all others.
are SO old way,
Before Times;

Flutter by gently.
This moment reeks
of Eternity,
Yet flies at the speed
of a blink.

Love You - Good Luck,
Pixie & Cloudia

The Earth Laughs in Flowers *

A L O H A From Honolulu!

A garden to walk in 

and immensity to dream in-

-what more could he ask? 

A few flowers at his feet 

and above him the stars.

     Victor Hugo

Tropical Hibiscus - Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 
'Stolen Kiss'

Let  us dance in the sun, 

wearing wild flowers 

in our hair.

 Susan Polis Schutz

Royal poinciana-  Delonix regia 

She wore flowers 

in her hair and carried 

magic secrets 

in her eyes. 

Arundhati Roy

'Foxy Lady'

Doubt your doubts before 

you doubt yourself.

        Lewis Pugh

The violets in the mountains 

have broken the rocks.

I will be the gladdest thing 

under the sun! 

I will touch a hundred flowers 

and not pick one.

Tentative Together

A L O H A From Honolulu!

"ALL About Me!"

True friendship comes 

when the silence 

between two people

is comfortable.

David Tyson

There’s not a word yet 

for old friends 

who’ve just met.

Jim Henson

Lagerstroemia indica,  crape myrtle 

A single rose 

can be my garden… 

a single friend, 

my world.

 Leo Buscaglia

You can make more friends 

in two months by becoming 

interested in other people 

than you can in two years 

by trying to get other people 

interested in you.

Dale Carnegie

How many slams 

in an old screen door? 

Depends how loud you shut it. 

How many slices in a bread? 

Depends how thin you cut it. 

How much good inside a day? 

Depends how good 

you live ’em. 

How much love 

inside a friend? 

Depends how much 

you give ’em.

 Shel Silverstein

Love You - Good Luck,
