Afternoon Aftermath

A L O H A From Honolulu!
All the technique
in the world doesn’t
compensate for the
inability to notice.
    Elliott Erwitt

One joy scatters
a hundred griefs.
   Chinese proverb

Ahu is a Hawaiian altar,
shrine, or cairn
utilized for spiritual
and ceremonial purposes
in both the past and
the present...
Modern ahu are considered
as authentic as the
ancient structures,
being part of a
living Hawaiian culture that
still continues today.

Honolulu is many dialogues.
Here a 19th century wall
in a city park, and
her 20th century neighbor
enjoy the trees and hushed
traffic from Beretania St.

Age is frequently beautiful,
wisdom appearing like
an aftermath.
Benjamin Disraeli

My life is a roller coaster
on golden wheels;
I am glad for
the perfect moments.
Daniel Derrick Mwesigye 

Love You,
   Pixie & Cloudia

You noticed a lot of things today. That ahu is really interesting. Pixie is startled that you want her to ride on a roller coaster.
