Some Paddle

 A   L   O   H   A  !

You can't live a perfect day 

without doing something 

for someone who will 

never be able to repay you.

           John Wooden

Plumeria, usually a child's first Lei

E lei kau, e lei ho‘oilo i ke aloha. 

Love is worn like a lei 

through the winter. 

He ho'okele wa'a no ka la 'ino.

 "A steersman for a stormy day."

I pray for President Biden


The canoe stands for the island, 

the community. Some steer, 

some paddle, and some 

only ride along. 

On islands, in 

small communities,

where people know 

one another,

we must paddle together 

if we want to get anywhere.

Those who do not 

believe in the voyage, 

are not forced to paddle.

But, being a 

beloved community,

they too will share the 


of the voyage.

The door is always open,

to join instead of jeer.

Industry, economy, 

honesty, and kindness 

form a quartet of virtues 

that will never be 

improved upon.

           James Oliver

Hearts rebuilt from hope 

resurrect dreams 

killed by hate.


True friends are those 
who lift you up
when your heart's wings 
forget how to fly.


We Love You,
