Resigning My Commission

A L O H A From Honolulu!
I no longer feel
commissioned to explain
the already settled to
intractable people.

I've always been interested
in people and what they think
even taking a degree in Psychology and working to influence clients
to choose their own good.
But now feels the time
for me to step away from such
involved caring about
opinions of strangers.

Less convincing
More sharing with
the like-minded.
That's YOU!

Plumeria pudica is a
species of the genus
Plumeria, native to
Panama, Colombia
and Venezuela.
This profuse bloomer
has leaves in the
shape of a cobra's hood,
[Above the "d" in pudica]
and its flowers are white
with a yellow center.

Smile and encourage

the world you move through.

Avoid and don't engage

with angry people.

Keep moving. Move on.

Smile Kindly. Care.

Encourage what is Good.

Cray will always
be Cray-Cray. Just give it it space,
continue doing the
right thing.

What I Always Hope To Be

A L O H A From Honolulu!

What would it mean to
live in a city whose people
were changing each other's
despair into hope?
Adrienne Rich

Aloha is
my joy, my love,
the reason I live;
What I hope to
share with people
and what I always
hope to be.
Danene Lunn

People only change
after they’ve felt understood.
The really good confidants
-the people we go to for wisdom-
are more like story editors
than sages. They take in
your story, accept it,
but prod you to
reconsider it so you can
change your relationship to
your past and future.
    David Brooks

* Resting Spot Moment*

I refuse
putting from me
the best that I am. Walt Whitman

Ours is a virtuous circle,
in which we are enriched
and enrich one another.
Extraordinary. And
I am extraordinarily
grateful for each of you.

Love You,
 Cloudia & Pixie

Best Creatures

A L O H A From Honolulu!

giving your best, then

I am a diva.

I want to be the

   Louise Hay

I am Not The Best,
But I Have The Potential
To Be Something Great. Anderson Silva

A L O H A From Honolulu!
Sunshine is delicious,
rain is refreshing,
wind braces us up,
snow is exhilarating;
there is really no such
thing as bad weather,
only different kinds
of good weather.

Today, give a stranger
one of your smiles.
It might be the only
sunshine he sees all day.

Gardeners, I think,
dream bigger dreams
than emperors.

Those who bring sunshine
to the lives of others -

from themselves.

once you get to
know them.

Morning Moon My Heart

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Don't let the
shadows of yesterday
spoil the sunshine
of tomorrow.
Live for today.

Half of your power
lies in your
