Three Little Birds

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Photo Baked Fresh Today

My writing often contains

souvenirs of the day—

a song I heard, a bird I saw

—which I then put

into the novel.
Author Amy Tan

It is only through shadows 

that one comes to 

know the light.     

Catherine of Siena

Birds are a miracle 

because they prove to us 

there is a finer, simpler 

state of being which we 

may strive to attain.

   Douglas Coupland

Oriental lilies are renowned for their delightful perfume and flamboyantmid- to late-summer blooms. The crimson cultivar ‘Stargazer’ is a popular hybrid with large, showy flowers that make it a showstopper when in bloom.

 I am not young

but I feel young. . .

J'aime la vie!
I feel that to live

is a wonderful thing.
Coco Chanel

Happiness, not in

another place

but this place,
not for another hour,

but this hour.
Walt Whitman


Love You - Good Luck,

Cloudia & Pixie

I love the Amy Tan quote, to think that an author would incorporate something she experienced into her daily writing...
