Lucky We're Still Here

A L O H A From Honolulu!
I close my eyes to old ends. And open my heart to
new beginnings. Nick Frederickson

We are adrift, and the
thinnest breeze
may blow us
where it will.
Rachel Hartman

Hard work can open
doors so wide,
it later seems as
though they had
never been closed.
   Margaret Renkl

We do have a tendency
to complain rather than
celebrating who we are.
I learned at my
mother’s knee it’s better to
appreciate what’s happening…
I think we kind of
talk ourselves into
the negative sometimes.
   Betty White

Stop being afraid of
what could go wrong,
and start being excited
about what could go right.
Tony Robbins

Change is like that:
you are no longer
where you were;
you are not yet
where you will get;
you are nowhere exactly.
 Lionel Shriver

It only SEEMS
that way!

Give your all
in the Here and Now,
with all of your heart.
Virginia Toole

Love You Friends!
            Cloudia & Pixie

Aloha Cloudia and Pixie, Betty White's quote is spot on, as pretty much all of them were. She will be missed. It's amazing how she's been in our lives continually 7 decades I heard. She will be long remembered. Great captures as always. Enjoy your sun and if only you could send some this way.

I would love to come back to Hawaii when life settles down and travel becomes safer. I love cats, wish I could have one again. - Margy

Sorry I'm late visiting. I've had no internet or phone since last Monday, but stopped by to say how much I like that image of the Buddha beer. I even laughed when I saw it, something I haven't done much of this past week. Pixie is adorable as ever, too, dear Cloudia.
