Bear In Mind *

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Dare to love yourself
as if you were a
rainbow with gold
at both ends.

"Wind Blown" 
That's my umbrella for scale

- just remember, the storm doesn't last forever. It can scare you; it can shake you to your core. But it never lasts. The rain subsides, the thunder dies, and the winds calm to a soft whisper. And that moment after the storm clouds pass, when all is
silent and still, you find peace.
Quiet, gentle peace.
      S.L. Jennings

Love comforteth like
sunshine after rain.     
    William Shakespeare

Never Met Cousin Dive O.
Different branches of the Charters
Clan I suppose. 

It IS a mural!

You don’t need to be the tide to rise and fall, you don’t have to be a wave to touch the shore; just be a little sand-grain and feel them all. Munia Khan 

Love You,
Cloudia & Pixie

But I love storms. If I ever had to move I might go to Seattle because it rains there so much.

Teresa said...

Love your cup toasting the rainbow and all the sunshine after rain. Pixie looks like she's meditating again.

Pixie is starring in a Japanese print in that image.
Self love is something I struggle with. Hugely.

Cloudia said...

You touch me with your authentic comments.

Did Pixie feel the earthquake because I sure did this morning?

A rainbow with gold at each end! Wonderful image to strive for.

Cloudia said...

Yes! I felt the earthquake. Been several years since felt a Hawaiian earthquake. I think they should confine themselves to Hawaii Island!
Thanks my dear friends ❤️

Wow, how incredible it is because I'm pretty sure that's a large umbrella too! A 6.2 hit I heard on Sunday is that right?

Although I originally came to see the Aloha mural, I was warmed by the cup with the beautiful rainbow overhead. Simply stunning photos and quotes, as usual, but these are extra special today. Even Pixie is sharing in the joy of the day.
