Things Mind Doesn't Understand

A L O H A From Honolulu!
Morning Moon

The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves.
It’s always there,
watching, steadfast, knowing us
in our light and dark moments,
changing forever just as we do.
Every day it’s a different
version of itself. Sometimes
weak and wan, sometimes
strong and full of light.
The moon understands
what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone.
Cratered by imperfections.

#1 Capitol District Honolulu March 16 1928
While they were both in the cabinet, under King Kamehameha V, American politicians John Mott-Smith and Charles Coffin Harris convinced the legislature to fund a hotel. It first opened in 1872.[1]: 173–174  The hotel was converted to a YMCA in 1917 and used by the military in World War I. In 1926 the termite-infested building was finally torn down, and a new one designed in Spanish mission style by Lincoln Rogers of the firm Emory & Webb.[2][3] The new building was dedicated on March 16, 1928. The two-story U-shaped building includes a swimming pool in its courtyard. Across Richards Street is the Hawaii State Capitol building. The area was added to the National Register of Historic Places listings in Oahu as the
Hawaii Capital Historic District on December 1, 1978.[4]

The strewn and tangled wreckage
that litters our lives is the
precious raw material
from which great beginnings
are forged.
Craig D. Lounsbrough

You can dream, create,
design, and build the
most wonderful place
in the world. But
it requires people
to make the dream
a reality.

The soul has been given
it's own ears to hear
things mind
does not understand.

Every positive thought 
is a silent prayer
which will 
change your life.
