Penultimate Day of September

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Our worries always
come from our weaknesses...
Strong people can
always afford to be gentle,
only the weak are
intent on
I would rather have a
big burden or hardship,
but have a strong back,
than turning everything
topsy-turvy and a mess. Napz Cherub Pellazo

Maturity of mind
is the capacity
to endure
       John Finley

If life were
it would cease
to be life, and
be without flavor. Eleanor Roosevelt

During periods of
root expansion
things have always
looked as
confused and
and purposeless as
they do now.
The whole Renaissance
is supposed to have
resulted from the
topsy-turvy feeling
caused by Columbus'
of a new world.
It just
shook people up.
Robert M. Pirsig

Up Looking

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Become the person
your younger self would
want to look up to
       Goitsemang Mvula

While we are sleeping,
angels have conversations
with our souls. 
       A. Nony Mouse

Our green valleys will be
greener once we fully grasp
the infinite vitality
of the green!
Mehmet Murat ildan

Much of spiritual life
is self-acceptance,
maybe all of it.
      Jack Kornfield, 

Every time it feels like
the world is out of control,
all I have to do is look up,
and I remember there is an
order to everything. There is
someone bigger than
my problems,  bigger than anything
that can happen in this world.
And because of that, I can
breathe a sigh of relief.
     Morgan L. Busse

Sweet Tuesday

A L O H A From Honolulu!

You are allowed to be both
a masterpiece and
a work in progress
     Sophia Bush.

Kindred spirits are not
as scarce as I used to think
 Anne Shirley

Sometimes I think
there are only two
instructions we need to
follow to develop and deepen
our spiritual life:
slow down and let go.
      Oriah Mountain Dreamer

Reach for the stars;
you might just catch one. Lori Greiner

My garden does not whet the appetite; it satisfies it. . . slakes it by proffering its natural remedy. Amid such pleasures as these have I grown old. Epicurus

Treat people with kindness,
and give them a reason
and a way to
say “yes,” Carine Strom Clark

Love You,

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Life throws challenges
and every challenge comes
with rainbows and lights
to conquer it.
 Amit Ray

Last Day At Work Hawaii Style

How lucky I am to
have something that
makes saying good bye
so hard.
    Winnie The Pooh

It’s hard, since Noah,
not to see a rainbow
as a sign of hope.
   Sheldon Vanauken

Spring still makes spring
in the mind When sixty years are told. Love wakes anew
this throbbing heart, And we are never old. Ralph Waldo Emerson

It takes only one person
to change your life...

The Seal, The Ant, and Ducks

A L O H A From Honolulu!
On Saturday morning
I walk to the beach.

It's just a short distance from
where I walk by every morning;
But on Saturday I cross Kalia
and walk down Paoa Place
between the Hale Koa,
and the Hilton.

Today I saw a black feral cat 
catch a grey dove
pulling it down!

But perhaps being unschooled
in the hunt, or surprised,
kitty lost her grip in the flutter
as dove flew up and away.
What else will we see?

A blessed haze lies upon all
this region, wherein is held
a little more of the sunlight
than other places hold,
and a little more of the
summer's humming music
of birds and bees; so that
men walk through it
as through a faery place,
and feel greater joy and
wonder than they ever
afterward remember.
   H.P. Lovecraft

Resting Hawaiian Monk Seal! Full grown!

Ocean is more ancient
than the mountains, and
freighted with the memories
and the dreams of Time.
H.P. Lovecraft

Laziness Personified.
We do not see them 
hunting, and traveling
hundreds of
miles at sea!

Meet my ant
on a crepe ginger blossom

When you meet with
your old friends, you
recollect some of the finest
moments of your life
and find yourself in a
joy that has no comparison. Syed Badiuzzaman

There's nothing half so pleasant
as coming home again. Margaret Elizabeth Sangster

Love You,

Every Visible Thing

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Every visible thing in this world
is put in the charge of an Angel. 
                          Saint Augustine

Will the roofs of new buildings
be vegetated? If not,
why not?
Tom Turner, 
Landscape Planning and Environmental Design

If you associate with eagles,
you will learn how to soar
to great heights. But if
you run with dogs,
you will learn
how to bark.
   Ojo Michael E.

In this vulnerable human life,
every loss is an opportunity
either to shut out the world
or to stand up with dignity
and let the heart respond. Jack Kornfield

For I have always been a seeker,
a dreamer, and a ponderer
on seeking and dreaming... H.P. Lovecraft
