Memory Reborn

A L O H A From Honolulu!

The truest test of character
is how we behave when
we don't know what to do.
        John Holt

Stop acting so small.
You are the universe
in ecstatic motion.

Bas-Relief Art upon an old Hawaii company in 
downtown Honolulu recalls our Agricultural History

Hibiscus waimeae, white Kauai rosemallow,
Hawaiian: kokiʻo keʻokeʻo, or kokiʻo kea

What incomes
have we not had
from a flower,
and how unfailing
are the dividends
of the seasons. Henry Ward Beecher 

I fly through memory 
to find a newborn love.
  Dejan Stojanovic

I know not all
that may be coming,
but be it what it will,
I'll go to it laughing.
   Herman Melville


Love You,
        Cloudia & Pixie


Let's Drink Tea together at this Tea House 
in Honolulu

Love the bas-relief. I don't know what to do half of the time. ;-)

The shot of the bas relief is awesome. I think Pixie is lying there pretending to be a newborn baby. Great quotes today, too.

I think Miss Pixie wants a belly rub.

What a great mural. That bas relief is wonderful. I had NO idea Hawaii had a history of cattle farming. It is beautiful.

I would LOVE to join you at that tea house, Cloudia. It looks beautiful and I'm thrilled you are joining us for T this week, too.
