Arboretum of Exotic Ideas

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Those who are willing to
be vulnerable move
among the mysteries.
Theodore Roethke

Spathoglottis plicata, commonly known as the Philippine ground orchid is an evergreen, terrestrial plant with crowded pseudobulbs, three or four large, pleated leaves and up to forty resupinate, pink to purple flowers. Wikipedia
A friend is someone 
who knows the song 
in your heart, and 
can sing it back to you 
when you have forgotten 
the words.  
    Donna Roberts

Ideas are like bananas. 
That bananas grow only 
in tropical regions doesn't 
make them any less 
delicious in Scandinavia.
    Eric Weiner

What is the pattern 
that connects the crab 
to the lobster and the 
primrose to the orchid, 
and all of them to me, 
and me to you?
   Gregory Bateson

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. 

Arguments are SO old way, 

Before Times; Spent.

Flutter by gently. 

This moment reeks of Eternity, 

Yet flies at the speed of a blink.

Love You - Good Luck,
Cloudia & Pixie
