A Kingdom of Beauty & Love

A L O H A From Honolulu!

When life gives you Monday,
dip it in glitter
and sparkle all day.
    Ella Woodward

We who lived in concentration camps
can remember the ones who
walked through the huts
comforting others, giving away
their last piece of bread.
They may have been few in number,
but they offered sufficient proof
that everything can be taken...
but one thing: the last of
the human freedoms-
to choose one's attitude in
any given set of circumstances,
to choose one's own way.
Viktor Frankl
 Man's Search for Meaning

Pandanus tectorius is a species of Pandanus
that is native to Malesia, eastern Australia, and the Pacific Islands.
it grows in the coastal lowlands typically near the edge of the ocean.
Common names in English include thatch screwpine,
Tahitian screwpine, hala tree,
pandanus, and pu hala in Hawaiian.

I believe in Liberty for all:

the space to stretch their

arms and their souls,

the right to breathe and

the right to vote, the

freedom to choose their friends,

enjoy the sunshine, and

ride on the railroads,

uncursed by color;

- thinking, dreaming, working

as they will in a kingdom

of beauty and love

W. E. B. Du Bois

Six best doctors in the world:
1. The sun,
2. Rest,
3. Exercise,
4. Diet,
5. Self-respect
6. Friends.
7. Stick to them
at all stages of your life
and enjoy a healthy life.
      Charlie Chaplin

Love You,

Wonderful new header photo. Great quotes: attitude and laughter are great medicines, as well as the rest on the list.

Frankl teaches the best principle about attitude in adverse situations. My father was in the camps & abided by this & the inmates' collecive dreams of a future alive, eating, loving & thriving freely. All good medicine. My cat Bogie sends his love to Pixie (me too)
